    Re: Replacing Value in Cell Automatically

    The Compare argument is the 6th argument.

    Use this...
    Target.Value = Replace(Target.Value, "HERZ", "1.HERZ", , , vbTextCompare)

    Or this...
    Target.Value = Replace(Target.Value, "HERZ", "1.HERZ", Compare:=vbTextCompare)
    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.

    Thanks, but this still doesn't work...

    I have this in the Worksheet Code so i'm hoping it will do it as people enter the information in the sheet... but its not!

    Is this in the Worksheet_Change event procedure? Can you show the whole procedure? Are the Application.Events enabled?

    Is the Worksheet_Change code getting triggered?

    Can you be more absolute and how do you know?

    The code provided worked for me.

    Re: Replacing Value in Cell Automatically

    When I update a value in the spreadsheet the screen flickers as if the file has run a macro, however nothing changes.

    I'm trying to think of some other simple update i can test to see if there's an issue with the sheet itself....any ideas?

    Re: Replacing Value in Cell Automatically

    I have just tried it in a fresh spreadsheet and it works perfectly!!

    The file I want to put this in does have a few macros and conditional formattings....would this make a difference?
