- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoHello there, The code works great. However, when a cell changes to below the threshold point via a macro operation that copies and pastes the lower value into the designated cell, the code doesn't seem to trigger.
Also, I would like to apply this code to several cells. Can I copy and paste the code several times and change each copied version to fit each cells' needs? Is there a better way to do that. I can't figure that out. Thank you!
