Hi guys.
Great Board...used it regularly for help.
This is my first question...

I need to restrict entry to a cell to any numeric value plue allow "r" "s" "h" and "a" as well (as well as the upper case of the letters)

I want to delete any entry other than those allowed, and have nearly managed it using target.value and case to select the allowed letters, but how do I allow the numbers as well as the 4 letters.

Hope you understand what I'm trying to acheive.

Help appreciated. :biggrin:

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off
