Automatically adding the date time to a cell when another cell is updated AND clearing it when this cell is empty

0 votes

I'm making an excel document for business reports. I took the script from this discussion in the MS Support -  LINK
It appears as follows:

Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

 If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1")) Is Nothing Or _
    Not Intersect(Target, Range("B1")) Is Nothing Or _
    Not Intersect(Target, Range("C1")) Is Nothing Or _
    Not Intersect(Target, Range("D1")) Is Nothing Or _
    Not Intersect(Target, Range("E1")) Is Nothing Then

    Target.Offset(1, 0) = Now
 End If

End Sub

It functions perfectly, but now I want to clear target cells after clearing the main cells. Now, for instance, if I delete A1, the time in A2 remains. I'm really new at Excel and am hoping for some assistance.

You are looking for an IsEmpty check in your code:

If IsEmpty(Target.Value) Then Target.Offset(1, 0).ClearContents Else Target.Offset(1, 0) = Now

As a whole:

Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

 If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:E1")) Is Nothing Then

    If IsEmpty(Target.Value) Then Target.Offset(1, 0).ClearContents Else Target.Offset(1, 0) = Now

 End If

End Sub
