Hai , can any one help me to solve this issue Am creating one leave plan template , I want to restrict the entry if the leave is crossing above the target .

In my template row is employee names and column follow dates, And for leave plan i put code for leave as “V” and total count by using countif.and I used get the number of people outside .
But I cannot restrict the entry if the value above the the set of target .
Currently I put condition formate to highlight the area .
Is there any way to do it in vba

You could use Data Validation for that, select the cells used for data entry then;

data validation/Validation Criteria/Allow Whole Number/ - you could either hard code your between target values in between min & max fields or point these to cell values if it needs to update dynamically.

then in the Error Alert tab you can write a message to the user to stay in given range.
