example

On page 1 a1 is a cell that will have a barcode scanned into it in live time.

when we populate cell A1 with a bar code scan, I want cell b2 to be the date stamp and cell c2 to be the time stamp. I would like these fields to autofill when cell A1 sees a scan.


I am set up to scan into the sheet but at this point I am not sure how to do the above.

Thanks
Eric

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Yes, it's a macro.

To use it, right-click on the sheet tab and select View Code, then paste the above code in the new window on the right. Alt+Q will exit back to Excel. Whenever a change is made in column A on that sheet, the date/time stamps will be entered.
