Check current cell is empty
I'm getting stuck...
If I enter some new data in Sheet2, column A, then this cell will be copied
to last cell of sheet 1 columnA automatically. This task can be done now
IF the data is overwriting some existing data, no need to copy.
my logic is
if the active cell is empty, and the target column is 1, then do the copy
else, do nothing
The question is: how can I check the current cell is empty?
Thank you in Advance
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) Then
MsgBox "Activecell Is Empty"
MsgBox "Activecell Is Not Empty&quo...VBA

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:

The mysterious thing is that it does not happen consistently and that, after
I click OK after the above message, I can still save the file.
