Hi there,

Hope someone can help with my query.

I need an input box to pop up.

Ex: If Range ("B2").value = X(!) THEN
input box should pop up "Please insert amount"
The amount entered should than go into Range ("C2")

Thx in advance

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

What changes B2 - you or does it contain a formula?

Try this: right click the sheet tab, select View Code and paste in

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim x As Variant
If Target.Address(False, False) = "B2" And Target.Value = "X(!)" Then
    x = Application.InputBox("Enter amount", Type:=1)
    If TypeName(x) = "Boolean" Then Exit Sub
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    Range("C2").Value = x
    Application.EnableEvents = True
End If
End Sub

Where are the other cells? In column B and you want to add values to the corresponding cell in column C?
