Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

On Error GoTo EndF

Application.EnableEvents = False

**insert the line below and choose the range(s) you would like to change.... every other value stays as "A1"**



If Not Application.Intersect(Target, Range("C:C")) Is Nothing Then



If Target.Count = 1 Then

If (Len(Target.Range("A1").Value) > 0) And IsNumeric(Target.Range("A1").Value) Then

If Target.Range("A1").Value = 0 Then mRangeNumericValue = 0

Target.Range("A1").Value = 1 * Target.Range("A1").Value + mRangeNumericValue

End If

End If

End If



EndF:

Application.EnableEvents = True

mRangeNumericValue = 0

End Sub
