Hi,

Is there a way of deselecting the value that is in my input box when it opens?

If so I'd like the prompt to be after the value.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Dan

Can you post the code that you are using to show the input box?

Hi Fluff,

Here is my code:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetBeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim C As Range
Dim Response As String
If Target.Row <= 6 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column = 1 Then
Application.EnableEvents = False
Response = UCase(InputBox("Please enter the line and batch.", "QA", "9" & Format(Date - DateSerial(Year(Date), 1, 0), "000") & "1092 - "))
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
End If
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
Thanks

Dan

With that code, to deselect the value, simply start typing

Hi Fluff,


If I start typing without using the right arrow key, what I type, types over the "92881092 - " that is in the InputBox when loaded.

I missed this line of code from my previous message:
Code:
ActiveCell.Value = Response
Thanks

Dan

Ok, I understand what you are saying & I know of no way to do what you are after.
