Hi:
I have a s/s which I am developing. What I would like to do is have a cell where it is updated with todays date when someone makes a change to the row.

e.g. I want cell B3 to show the date that row 3 was last updated. e.g2 When I change cell G3, B3 will show the date it was updated.

Hope some out there can help. Thanks everyone

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

I'm not sure if you can do this using a formula with iteration increased or not. Irregardless, I think I would just stick to using a VBA code solution. The example that you can download watches all cells in columns C to IV. This range is named. See the explanation in the code below...

This code belongs in the worksheet class module that we are considering.

something like;
Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
if target.column=2 then exit sub
Cells(Target.Row, 2) = Date
End Sub
