arrow blue right bubble Record date and time automatically when cell changes with VBA code


For example, I have a range of values, and now, when I change or type new values in Column B, I want there will automatically record current date and time in Column C as following screenshot shown:

doc-update-time-value-changes-1

You can finish this task with following VBA code. Please do as this:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Then choose your used worksheet from the left Project Explorer, double click it to open the Module, and then copy and paste following VBA code into the blank Module:

VBA code: Record date and time automatically when cell changes

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
'Update 20140722
Dim WorkRng As Range
Dim Rng As Range
Dim xOffsetColumn As Integer
Set WorkRng = Intersect(Application.ActiveSheet.Range("B:B"), Target)
xOffsetColumn = 1
If Not WorkRng Is Nothing Then
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    For Each Rng In WorkRng
        If Not VBA.IsEmpty(Rng.Value) Then
            Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).Value = Now
            Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).NumberFormat = "dd-mm-yyyy, hh:mm:ss"
        Else
            Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).ClearContents
        End If
    Next
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
End Sub

doc-update-time-value-changes-1

3. Then save and close this code to return to the worksheet, now when you change the cell value or type new data in Column B, the date and time will be recorded automatically in Column C.

Notes:

1. In the above code, you can modify the “B:B” to any other column that you want to change the cell values in this script: Set WorkRng = Intersect(Application.ActiveSheet.Range("B:B"), Target).

2. With this xOffsetColumn = 1 script, you can insert and update the date and time to the first column next to your changing value column, you can change the number 1 to other numbers, such as 2,3,4,5…that means the date will be inserted the second, third, fourth or fifth column besides your changed values column.

3. When you delete a value in the changed column, the date and time will be removed as well.

    The code in "VBA code: Record date and time automatically when cell changes" above works well in my worksheet where I manually enter data in a cell. However, I have a "summary" worksheet in which cells automatically update their value based upon the values of cells on other worksheets in the same workbook, e.g. The formula in my cell B6 on my 'summary' worksheet might be ='Example'!F3. When the value in 'Example!F3 changes the summary sheet cell B6 automatically updates to a new value. I am trying to show a timestamp on the summary sheet when ever changes occur to save me having to search through numerous linked worksheet for changes. With the present VBA code nothing happens when the value on my 'summary' sheet updates from the data on the linked worksheet cells. Can you help with this please?

    Would it be possible to have the timestamp appear 5 rows down? Would need it in an specific cell and not the entire column.
    Column range is easy to change to specific cell but i don´t know how to get the timestamp in an specific cell :(
    Please help!

    Would it be possible to change on what row the timestamp is showed? I would like to have the timestamp 5 rows down.
    Tried xOffsetRows = 5 but that did not word, maybe that command does not exist :)
    Please help!

    what about if i need to have column I, J, and K all trigger a date into column L? I have tried posting script 3 times, and changing the name, and column offset, but it never runs the second and third script.

    also, i had to change the first line of code to be different for each copy/paste.
    example
    Private Sub Worksheet_Change (ByVal Target As Range)

    the next is

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change1 (ByVal Target As Range)


    by doing so i eliminate an error Compile Error: Ambiguous name detected: Worksheet_Change.

    if i duplicate this name it causes this error, so i changed them by adding a 1, 2, 3 etc..

    I am attempting to make this reference multiple columns and reflect the date of any change in these columns back to one column. example, if i change anything in I,J,or K I want the date updated to current in L. i have tried to copy this VB code 3 times, changing the target, and column application to be I:I and 3 J:J and 2, K:K and 1. only K:K will work to change L. thoughts?

    This is exactly what I needed. Since I needed a timestamp in column F to reflect any changes in columns A, B, C, D, or E in a row, I duplicated the code that many times and redefined the range to point to each of the columns within the different iterations of the code.

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    'Update 20140722
    Dim WorkRng As Range
    Dim Rng As Range
    Dim xOffsetColumn As Integer

    Set WorkRng = Intersect(Application.ActiveSheet.Range("A:A"), Target)
    xOffsetColumn = 5
    If Not WorkRng Is Nothing Then
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    For Each Rng In WorkRng
    If Not VBA.IsEmpty(Rng.Value) Then
    Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).Value = Now
    Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).NumberFormat = "dd-mm-yyyy, hh:mm:ss"
    Else
    Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).ClearContents
    End If
    Next
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If

    Set WorkRng = Intersect(Application.ActiveSheet.Range("B:B"), Target)
    xOffsetColumn = 4
    If Not WorkRng Is Nothing Then
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    For Each Rng In WorkRng
    If Not VBA.IsEmpty(Rng.Value) Then
    Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).Value = Now
    Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).NumberFormat = "dd-mm-yyyy, hh:mm:ss"
    Else
    Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).ClearContents
    End If
    Next
    Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If

      Hi Chris, Can you let me know what part of the code I should copy and also where to paste it? I'm trying the same but am getting error codes. Preferably I would like to get a timestamp in Column F to reflect a change in Column A, and a timestamp in Column G to reflect a change in Column B. But one timestamp for a change in column A, B, C, D, or E like you did would already be great. Many thanks for your help.

    Also, I have to say: Your instructions are THE BEST, so simple but effective and straight forward!!!

    by simply adding Rng.Offset(0, yOffsetColumn).Value = Environ$("UserName")

    above Else in the next column I am capturing the Windows Username as well, I didn't need a full Audit Trail and wanted the Change info WITH the data, this is perfect.


    Thank you so much!

    I was wondering how would you modify the code to fill in the date only if you wanted it to populate for a given value. Say I only want the date to populate when I select "Closed" for a value for the target range?

      xOffsetColumn = 1
      If Not WorkRng Is Nothing Then



      ActiveSheet.Unprotect



      Application.EnableEvents = False
      For Each Rng In WorkRng
      If Not VBA.IsEmpty(Rng.Value) Then
      Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).Value = Now
      Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).NumberFormat = "hh:mm"
      Else
      Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).ClearContents

    Hello,


    Is it possible to implement this code with the data refresh. Because when i refresh the data it always puts the now stamp, however when the data is changed manually it does it okay and only records when manually changed correctly so all the times are then different, but when refreshed it might create new rows and therefore it puts all the current timestamps.

    How do I get this code to put the date stamp in the column to the left? I tried -1 and it didn't work. Also, it doesn't seem to recognize data filled in by a formula. Can I do that? I need this for twelve different columns in one Summary sheet that gathers data from six departmental sheets. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

          Hello there,
          Update the original code with that.
          In the meanwhile I have put another IF statement update before the code " If Rng.Offset(0, 1).Value = 0 Then ", because whenever you delete an upper row, it will cause cell value change, an will stamp the time again.

          If Rng.Offset(0, 1).Value = 0 Then
          If Not VBA.IsEmpty(Rng.Value) And Rng.Offset(0, -1).Value = Rng.Offset(0, 0).Value Then

          Hope it helped to you. :)

      I am having the same issue. I want to record the date that a specific cell was changed, For example, if B2 is changed then I want to record the date and time that happened in C2. With this code, if I change B8 or B26 it changes the time stamp in all of the C cells if the row has a value in B. (Therefore, overwriting the date that was in C2 and putting the new date in C2, C8 and C26.)

      replace this line
      Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).Value = Now

      to
      Rng.Offset(0, xOffsetColumn).Value = Now+1

    this code will show date on click it appears, is it possible to show date only when content in cell is changed, if only clicked and nothing changed, then date does not show or previously entered date stays?

    I found this code elsewhere and modified it for my use. If done properly, you do not need to worry about entering a function in a cell or the file changing the dates to that day's date every time it is opened.

    - open Excel
    - press "Alt+F11"
    - Double-click on the worksheet that you want to apply the change to (listed on the left)
    - copy/paste the code below
    - adjust the Range(_:_) input to correspond to the column you will update
    - adjust the Offset(0,_) input to correspond to the column where you would like the date displayed (in the version below I am making updates to column D and I want the date displayed in column F, hence the input entry of "2" for 2 columns over from column D)
    - hit save
    - repeat steps above if there are other worksheets in your workbook that need the same code
    - you may have to change the number format of the column displaying the date to "General" and increase the column's width if it is displaying "####" after you make an updated entry

    Copy/Paste Code below:
    ____________________________________________________________


    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    If Intersect(Target, Range("D:D")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Target.Offset(0, 2) = Date

    End Sub

    ____________________________________________________________
    Good luck...

    Hi,

    I need some VBA coding help.

    I am creating a spread sheet with cases which will be assigned to people and have case status.

    The assignee's will be in Col H and I need a date stamp in Col I when the cell in Col H get updated or changed with a name.
    Similarly I will have case status in Col J and will need a date stamp in Col K when a status get inputted or changed.

    also when there is non assignee name or status I need the date stamp in Col I and K to be blank.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi ,

    Thank you kindly for this as it is great for WB auditability.

    Is there a way of altering this to have the date/time be logged somewhere on the WB whenever a comment is added or modified? I know this is a general question, but I am not sure if it's possible (unfortuantely for MS 2010, the .comment property does not hold a date property to identify when it was entered.

    Mike

    How do I get the time stamp to record in a specific cell, instead of the cell next to the one that was changed. I am attempting to have a row of cells time stamped when a change occurs in any of those cells, I would like the time stamp to record in one specific cell...can anyone help with this? Thank you!

    I can change the range to be ("A:Q") but I need the date and time to go in "S" if the data in any A-Q cell is changed/removed. I'm VBA challenged. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Is there a way to time stamp based on a specific change? For example, I have a spreadsheet with a column of drop-down options including being blank, 'Ok', and 'Act'. When the task is completed, the drop down is manually used to select 'Ok'. I'd like the date stamp to be tied to when 'Ok' is selected, but not when 'Act' is selected. The 'Act' option in the drop down is used when a task is past due, but I'm really just trying to track when an item is completed.

    Is there a way to accomplish this with the above code? Thanks!
