Hi-

I'm trying to write a macro that will not allow a number to be zero. I have a macro that references a cell that if it is input to zero will create a loop that goes on forever. The thing is this cell will never have to be zero, so is there a way that I can write a macro that if this cell is zero, it gets reset to its previous value?
 

Excel Facts

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().
Use data validation (in the data tab of the ribbon). Whole number, then set the dropdown to "not equal to".

Not sure the VBA for it. but do it with the recorder on and then see what it recorded.

Maybe ...

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Static v           As Variant

    If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
        If VarType(Target.Value2) = vbDouble And _
           Target.Value2 = 0 Then
            Application.EnableEvents = False
            Target.Value = v
            Application.EnableEvents = True
        End If
        v = Target.Value
    End If
End Sub
