Data Entry to a Cell Range

Can I set up a data entry form, so if every time I enter a value in a cell, 
it updates the next empty cell in a range?  Thanks

Lets assume that the form is used to update cell A1.  We require that 
everytime A1 is updated the new value will be recorded in column B.  Put the 
following event macro in the worksheet code area:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim A1 As Range, t As Range
Set A1 = Range("A1")
Set t = Target
If Intersect(A1, t) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application.EnableEvents = False
    n = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row + 1
    Cells(n, "B").Value = A1.Value
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Because it is worksheet code, it is very easy to install and automatic to use:

1. right-click the tab name near the bottom of the Excel window
2. select View Code - this brings up a VBE window
3. paste the stuff in and close the VBE window

If you have any concerns, first try it on a trial worksheet.

If you save the workbook, the macro will be saved with it.

To remove the macro:

1. bring up the VBE windows as above
2. clear the code out
3. close the VBE window

protecting a group of cells not a whole worksheet
I would like to protect a group of cells and not a whole worksheet but I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. I think this would be the best way for what I am wanting to do. I have a spreadsheet that I send to 13 people. They make changes and send back to me and then I have to up-date the changes. If I could protect all the cells except for the one they enter in - then I could save the file on a shared drive and it would eliminate me up-dating. Is there a way to do this?

Data Consolidation
I have 20+ worksheets in a workbook. Each sheet is a timesheet for an individual and each sheet can have up to eight cost codes which will be the same on some sheets but will not be in the same position on all sheets. How do I label or set up a range so I can consolidate all of these cost codes on a seperate sheet to give me the total hours for each cost code? Could you for example do the following: Set up your new sheet with a table with all the cost codes in a column on the left, and all the people at the top. Then put a sumif, or sumproduct formulae so that it adds up all the hours ...

Duplicate Data

adding trendline into data-column
After adding a trendline (moving average), I woudl like to add the values of the trendline into a column..How can I do that??

Just use the average function and copy the formula down.

Receiving Transaction Entry

I'm guessing values in this column/field are to specify what went wrong during receiving to cause this error. Dave ...

eliminating unwanted data
Column a has data, column b has data. I want ap1 to equal q1 if a1 equals b1. Actually I am looking for a way to eliminate rows if data in one column appears in a second column. Thank you Your question is confusing. Do you simply want to delete rows where the value in column A equals value in column B? I don't see the relevance of making ap1 to equal q1 if you are deleting the row anyway where you have 2 equal values. Might as well compare A and B and delete. Anyway the following is a sample of deleting rows based on a condition. It firstly sets the interior ...
