Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.
Try this: right click the sheet tab, select View Code and paste in

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
Target.Value = Environ("username")
End Sub

Hi VoG, great this works fine....but how do i restrict to column C so that users do not make errors all over the sheet?

Try

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
If Target.Column = 3 Then
    Cancel = True
    Target.Value = Environ("username")
End If
End Sub

OK, sorry about this - one more question.....How about entering a timestamp by double-clicking on column D? This would display date and time e.g. 20-JAN-2010 11:15

Try

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Select Case Target.Column
    Case 3: Cancel = True: Target.Value = Environ("username")
    Case 4: Cancel = True: Target.NumberFormat = "dd-mmm-yyyy hh:mm": Target.Value = Now
End Select
End Sub
