Worksheet A has ranges of data that are collected from Worksheet B. Worksheet A has a macro that calculates if the data is above a value then calls an email module to email selected users.
When the data is manually input on Worksheet A the Macro works, however when data is pulled from Worksheet B it doesn’t fire.
I’m not sure what I need to change in my VBA code.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Call MailAlert(Target, "B5:M5", 4) Call MailAlert(Target, "B8:M8", 7) Call MailAlert(Target, "B11:M11", 6) Call MailAlert(Target, "B14:M14", 2) Call MailAlert(Target, "B17:M17", 4) Call MailAlert(Target, "B20:M20", 1) Call MailAlert(Target, "B23:M23", 3) Call MailAlert(Target, "B26:M26", 1) Call MailAlert(Target, "B29:M29", 5) Call MailAlert(Target, "B32:M32", 1) Call MailAlert(Target, "B35:M35", 7) Call MailAlert(Target, "B38:M38", 20) Call MailAlert(Target, "B41:M41", 0) End Sub Private Sub MailAlert(ByVal Target As Range, ByVal Address As String, ByVal Value As Integer) If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Application.Intersect(Range(Address), Target) Is Nothing Then If IsNumeric(Target.Value) And Target.Value > Value Then Call Mail_small_Text_Outlook End If Application.EnableEvents = True End If End Sub
To capture the changes by a formula you have to use the
Worksheet_Calculate() event. To understand how it works, let’s take an example.
- Create a New Workbook.
- In Sheet1 Cell A1, put this formula
Now In a module paste this code
Public PrevVal As Variant
Paste this in the Sheet Code area
Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate() If Range("A1").Value <> PrevVal Then MsgBox "Value Changed" PrevVal = Range("A1").Value End If End Sub
And lastly in the
ThisWorkbook Code area paste this code
Private Sub Workbook_Open() PrevVal = Sheet1.Range("A1").Value End Sub
Close and Save the workbook and reopen it. Now Make any change to the cell A1 of
Sheet2. You will notice that you will get the message box
MsgBox "Value Changed"
The worksheet_change event will only fire on manual user changes. I think your best bet would be to implement this as a worksheet change event on your Worksheet B, where I presume the user input changes are taking place.
There are some alternatives which I’ll suggest if this really doesn’t suit you, but I think this is probably by far the best option.
Edit: Another suggestion per following comments
The ThisWorkbook object has an event SheetChange, which will be fired any time any sheets in the workbook are changed. If you can identify the ranges where data will be entered on each of the B sheets you can then use these ranges as in your original code.
Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range) If Not Sh Is Sheets("Worksheet A") Then If Intersect(Sh.Range("B1:B5"), Target) Then 'Call MailAlert as required here ElseIf Intersect(Sh.Range("B10:B20"), Target) Then 'Call MailAlert as required here Else ' Etc... 'Call MailAlert as required here End If End If End Sub
Let me know how that goes.
