Hey good folk,

I have a timesheet i get my engineering dept to fill in, we have a lot of customers who's name they have to input when working on a design. The "short" name our ERP system uses is noting like the actual customer name and my guys sometimes get confused.
Anyway i have created an x lookup to pull the correct short name from the actual long list and this is working fine, problem is my guys don't like to have to do a search, find the correct code and then rewrite the code into the cell.

The field that shows the code is part of a formula so a simple copy and paste won't work, plus some of the team are not the best with Excel and if i leave the cells unlocked someone will cut and not copy and break it for the whole.

I was wondering if someone a lot smarter than me could come up with a code so that the user inputs the customer name, the code pops up the correct answer, the user hits a "commit" button that would copy that text to the correct cell in the column, then allow them to fill in the rest of the row, next job, next row do the same......Hope i am explaining this correctly.

Any help would be fantastic

That could be done. I need more specific details.
You said:
so that the user inputs the customer name, the code pops up the correct answer, the user hits a "commit" button that would copy that text to the correct cell in the column

OK lets say user enters "Alpha" in Range("A2)
Where is the script going to get the your quote: correct answer and what cell is the correct cell.

And we may not need a popup

Please provide more details.
