Add Date in Corresponding Cell

It is often asked how one can have a date, or date and time, entered into a corresponding cell after data in entered into other cells. Let's suppose you need the current date entered into Column "B", on the same row as Column "A" data is entered. The date entered must be static so that means we cannot simply use the TODAY(), or NOW() functions.

The code below must be added to the private Module of the Worksheet Object that will store the data and corresponding date. To quickly get here from Excel, right click on the Sheet name tab and choose View Code. In here paste the code below. Then test it by adding any data to any cell in the range A2:A100 and you will see the current date appear in the corresponding cell of B2:B100. To get both the current date & time use: .Value = Now as apposed to .Value = Date. For only the time use: .Value = Time

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub

        If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2:A100")) Is Nothing Then

            With Target(1, 2)

                .Value = Date


            End With

        End If

End Sub
