VBA code: Enable or disable two buttons based on two columns:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    CommandButton1.Enabled = False
    CommandButton2.Enabled = False
    If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("C:C")) > 0 Then
        CommandButton2.Enabled = True
    End If
    If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("A:A")) > 0 Then
        CommandButton1.Enabled = True
    End If
End Sub

Note: In the above code, CommandButton1 and CommandButton2 are the buttons names, A:A and C:C are the two columns that you use to enable or disable two buttons, please change them to your need.

3. Then save and close the code window, now, you will get the following result as you need:

(1.) If type data in Column A, the button 1 is enabled and button 2 is disabled, see screenshot:

I receive a "Expected Function or variable" error when I incorporate this code - could you show the code you set up for the two buttons? May help me solve the error.
