pasting of variable cell value into macro

I have written a macro that runs an autofilter which grabs cell info from a 
different worksheet within that workbook (an entered date). It then uses that 
date to autofilter. It works fine the first time, but aparently plugs that 
info permanently into the macro and will not work on subsequent runs.  I need 
a macro that will grab variable info from a certain cell each time and run 
with that new cell value each time.  Any ideas?. (& yes, I am a newbee)

Your problem is refreshing the autofilter.  It is best to clear the old 
filter before applying the new filter.  Here is an example:

Sub puralator()
Dim s As String
s = Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").Value
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=s
End Sub

Maybe use ActiveCell.value  instead of Range("A1").value as filter criterion
but hard to say without seeing your code.

Displaying values vs formulas

Forms: can a cell itself be clickable?
Hi! I'm trying to create a form for my boss.

In other words, I don't want to the click box to be a picture, I want it to be an integral part of the cell, so I can modify it as needed (ie. place it centrered horizontally or vertically etc. Am I dreaming in colour?

Cell Number Format
Hi, when i type for example this any number with more than 15 digits, the first 15 digits appear like i wrote it but the rest of them are changed by zeros. EX: i write this 123456789123456789 and the number that is kept is 123456789123456000 Does anyone experienced this and knows how to resolve it.

How to quote cells when "IF" word is involved
