    How can we trigger a simple macro based on cell value of another cell automatically with

    a code and without any keyboard short-cut. This simple macro is to copy a1 to b1
    How to write a code which will directly trigger it if C1=1 ?
    There is a formula in C1 = if(or(a1<-7,a1>7),1,0)

    Does C1 accept keyed input or does it have a formula in it?

    I wanted to run another macro with it( the original C1 cell has been changed to G8). I tried to put it in continuation but it does not work. Can you please tell me how to add other macros including this one referring to G11 ( which again is going to be a formula cell yeilding 1, G11=IF(OR(E2<-4,E2>4),1,"") )and the Macro name is QMaster ( instead of w_TMS )

    If I am testing one cell/range, I usually escape from the routine as soon as one of the conditions fails.

    So, too many cells changed, exit. Not a cell of interest, exit. Not the value I'm looking for, exit.

    If you want to monitor more than one cell/range, you need to take positive action for each one and exit after you have completed the required actions.

    So, after excluding multiple cell changes, we need to check that it is a cell of interest and it is the value being checked for.


    Untested, but try:

    I can't really help you without knowing what your code does ...

    This works for me. Note that it sets up formula in cells G8 and G11 for testing purposes. You need to remove that code, or comment it out.

    Re: How can we trigger a simple macro based on cell value of another cell automatically wi

    Thanks a lot to you for your time and kind help... I have tried this code .... but somehow two sets do not work out.....
    O yes there was one mistake in your code which made it sluggish... I just tried to use logic and corrected it ....
    "' more than one cell changed?
    If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub"

    Should be < 1. This made the code ( original one was the best ) extremely fast !
    I really appreciate all your help ! You are a patient and helpful person.
    Thanks again

    Re: How can we trigger a simple macro based on cell value of another cell automatically wi

    Target.Cells.Count will never be less than one. This is a Change event, therefore, at least one cell must have changed. The point is that, if Target.Cells.Count > 1, then several cells have been changed. This could be because all the data in a row or column has been deleted. The code is not designed to cater for that (you'd need a loop) but, in this case, it is only interested in changes to any of the cells that affect the formulae in cells G8 or G11. So you test the precedents for changes but look at the value in the cell.

    Changing the test to < 1 will mean it is hellishly fast ... primarily because it won't be doing anything.

    You are a patient and helpful person.
    No, I'm not. I'm trying to be both but you are making it difficult. You started by asking for something that bore no relationship to what you actually want/need. Then it became two cells, neither of which was checked originally, and then you introduce routines that don't do what you want but which you have not shared with us.

    If you wish to have this problem addressed, please post a sample workbook with some typical data and all the code you are trying to automate.
