VBA: Jump to adjacent cell based on value
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) 'UpdatebyExtendoffice20161221 If Target.Address <> [C1].Address Then Exit Sub Else JumpToCell End If End Sub Sub JumpToCell() Dim xRg, yRg As Range Dim strAddress As String strAddress = "" Set yRg = Range("A2:A8") For Each xRg In yRg 'MsgBox Cell.Value If xRg.Value = ActiveCell.Value Then strAddress = xRg.Address End If Next If strAddress = "" Then MsgBox "The Day You Selected in Cell D4 Was Not Found On " & ActiveSheet.Name, _ vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel" Exit Sub Else Range(strAddress).Offset(0, 1).Select End If End Sub
3. Press F5 key, then the cursor jumps to the adjacent cell based on the value in drop down list.
In the VBA code, A2:A8 is the list which contains the values matching to the values in drop down list, you can change this reference as you need.
