Hi,

I am looking for a way to verify if a cell say A1 contains same digits like 1111, 2222, etc.

The Len will always be 4.

Thanks in advance

Probably there is lots for solution, I've got something like this:
A​
B​
1
1111​
TRUE​
2
1233​
FALSE​
3
2222​
TRUE​
4
2452​
FALSE​
5
8888​
TRUE​

<tbody>
</tbody>


A​
B​
1
1111​
=SUM(CODE(MID(A1,ROW($1:$4),1)))/4=CODE(LEFT(A1,1))​
2
1233​
=SUM(CODE(MID(A2,ROW($1:$4),1)))/4=CODE(LEFT(A2,1))​

<tbody>
</tbody>


There is array formula in B1 so have to be accept with Ctrl+Shift+Enter ({} should appear) and drag it down.

You did not mention about VBA in original post or thread title?

Into sheet code:

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    MsgBox Evaluate("=SUM(CODE(MID(" & Target.Value & ",ROW($1:$4),1)))/4=CODE(LEFT(" & Target.Value & ",1))")
End Sub

Hi, something like this?

Code:
Option Explicit


Option Explicit


Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim numberInQuestion As String, firstDigitInQuestion As Long, i As Long, nextDigitInQuestion As Long, isItANumber As Boolean
If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
numberInQuestion = Range("A1").Value
isItANumber = IsNumeric(numberInQuestion)
firstDigitInQuestion = Left(numberInQuestion, 1)
If isItANumber = True Then
For i = 1 To Len(numberInQuestion)
nextDigitInQuestion = Mid(numberInQuestion, i, 1)
If firstDigitInQuestion <> nextDigitInQuestion Then
MsgBox "numbers are different"
End If
Next i
End If
End If
End Sub


Sub init()
Dim rng As Range
Set rng = Range("A1")
Call Worksheet_Change(rng)
End Sub

Okay thanks but I need a VBA code for this.
Something like
Code:
MsgBox Replace(Range("A1").Value, Left(Range("A1").Value, 1), "") = vbNullString
or
Code:
MsgBox Range("A1").Text = String(4, Left(Range("A1").Text, 1))
