Hi

Sheet 'Training 1981-1997' Column F2:F6210 contains text, with some rows that start with the word "Day" (without the commas) followed by a space and a number.

I need to cross-check to make sure I haven't skipped or duplicated a number in error. Therefore what I'd be grateful for is some double click event code I can run in any cell in Col G that will return a msgbox that has counted the number of cells in Col F2:F6210 with text beginning with the word "Day" followed by a space and a digit e.g. "Day 123". I've used the 'Find' function to do this so far, but it'll be faster just to double click.

Many thanks!

...and it does!!! Thank you so much for all your time and trouble you've gone to for me, mumps, especially on a Sunday, assuming you're working in the week.

Best regards

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying
