    Exclamation Format a row when user hits enter

    Hello All, I'd like to have a use fill out a table and when then get to the last column and hit enter it returns to first column and formats the row the way I need it to be. That is border set, cells merged, alignment and font set. See the attachment. I'm also kinda new to Excel VB so I really need an explicit instructions/code. So look at the attachment for visual explanation of what I want to do and the spreadsheet itself.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Format a row when user hits enter

    Will the previous line be completely filled in before they hit enter?
    Thanks,
    Solus


    Please remember the following:

    1. Use [code] code tags [/code]. It keeps posts clean, easy-to-read, and maintains VBA formatting.
    Highlight the code in your post and press the # button in the toolbar.
    2. Show appreciation to those who have helped you by clicking below their posts.
    3. If you are happy with a solution to your problem, mark the thread as [SOLVED] using the tools at the top.

    Hello, no because, of example the last column is a Hand Rubber Stamp that goes into the box after the inspector as completed each dimension inspection.

    By the way, thank you for responding, I really really appreciate the help

    This is not entirely elegant but you can try:

    I didn't not test the .Font line because I do not have that font. You might have to alter it to match the font you have. This code would require that columns A-W be complete before it will add a new line.

    Okay so I need a bit more guidance. I go into Developer, Visual Basic or Macros. Just a bit more info on what to do with the code provided.

    Right click on the tab of sheet you want it to effect and select 'View Code'. Paste the code above into the module that appears.

    You can then test it by filling out the last row and pressing enter.

    The first red line needs to be changed from U to V. I apparently had a typo. The second line will adjust the thickness of the border if you change the value (currently 4).

    Exclamation Re: Format a row when user hits enter

    Hello Solus

    You helped me a little while back with adding rows to my sheet using VB script. Is there a way to
    add exactly 30 lines so that I get a full next page each time. I don't want pages with only a few formatted lines

    The people who will be using this need to have it "dummy" proof.

    See current form page. The VB script works fine just want to see if it can be tweeked a bit.
