The following VBA code can help you to execute a specific code automatically when the formula result cell changes, please do as this:

1. Right-click the sheet tab that you want to use, and then choose View Code from the context menu, in the opened Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window, copy and paste the following code into the blank Module:

VBA code: Automatically run macro when cell formula result changes:

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim Xrg As Range
    Set Xrg = Range("C2:C8")
    If Not Intersect(Xrg, Range("C2:C8")) Is Nothing Then
    Macro1
    End If
End Sub

Note: In the above code, C2:C8 is the range of formula cells that you want to use,maco1 is the name of the macro you want to run automatically. Please change it to your need.

Hello team,

I know this is a old topic but how to have a mix between this calculate method and this: https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/1895-excel-record-date-and-time-when-cell-changes.html?

The goal is to record a date on the next cell every time that the calculated values change for every cell in a column.

Regards,
Tiago

Hey guys,
Below is the code and I want to lock cells A2 and A3 after cell A1 (A1 = B1+C1) is changing in results change either B1 or C1 or both. But it does not work. Could anyone help with that, please?

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()

Dim sPass
sPass = "123"
Dim rng As Range
Set rng = [A2:A3]
If Not Intersect(rng, [A1]) Is Nothing Then
With ActiveSheet
.Unprotect Password:=sPass
.Cells.Locked = False
Static oldValue
If Range("A1") <> oldValue Then
rng.Locked = True
.Protect Password:=sPass
oldValue = Range("A1").Value

End If
End With

End If
End Sub

"Set Xrg = Range("C2:C8")
If Not Intersect(Xrg, Range("C2:C8")) Is Nothing Then"

So, what is my macro name. where can i find my macro name?

Hello, Cenk,
The macro name is the macro code you have inserted into the Excel file, and you just need to change the Macro1 in the above code to your own.
For example, i insert a code here, and the macro name is: ColorCompanyDuplicates

Sub ColorCompanyDuplicates()
'Updateby Extendoffice 20160704
Dim xRg As Range
Dim xTxt As String
Dim xCell As Range
Dim xChar As String
Dim xCellPre As Range
Dim xCIndex As Long
Dim xCol As Collection
Dim I As Long
On Error Resume Next
If ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Count > 1 Then
xTxt = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.AddressLocal
Else
xTxt = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.AddressLocal
End If
Set xRg = Application.InputBox("please select the data range:", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)
If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
xCIndex = 2
Set xCol = New Collection
For Each xCell In xRg
On Error Resume Next
xCol.Add xCell, xCell.Text
If Err.Number = 457 Then
xCIndex = xCIndex + 1
Set xCellPre = xCol(xCell.Text)
If xCellPre.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone Then xCellPre.Interior.ColorIndex = xCIndex
xCell.Interior.ColorIndex = xCellPre.Interior.ColorIndex
ElseIf Err.Number = 9 Then
MsgBox "Too many duplicate companies!", vbCritical, "Kutools for Excel"
Exit Sub
End If
On Error GoTo 0
Next
End Sub

What's the point of the condition? It'll always return true...in other words: it'll run without it. This also runs whenever any cells on the sheet change value.

Thanks a lot! This really helped me out.
Is there any method to retrieve the address of the changed cell (with formula i.e Column C in this example).
Thanks.
