    cant you just reference those cells in the other sheet?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Re: Need to update a record everytime my workbook is saved

    Sorry I realised that what I asked wasn't clear enough.

    I need the information in E1 (Date), B26 (Name) and B31 a (Type of check) be entered on a new line every time the workbook is saved. This workbook is to keep an electronic record of medical equipment inventories and we need to also keep a record of who checked what, when.

    Hope this helps clarify what I need.

    Hi,

    Thanks for changing the title.

    You'll need to add code like the following to the Workbook Before Save event. e.g.

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    Where Sheet1 is the VBA code name of your information sheet and Sheet2 is the Log sheet

    Thanks for the input, for some reasons, it doesn't work... here is what I did:

    Sac Chef Trieur (Version 1.4).xls

    What did I do wrong?
