Hello Friends, New here and in need of assistance.

I am recently facing a problem where I need to confirm the number of items received against supplier provided document. To make it clear, I have a excel sheet containing 10 barcodes for 10 boxes. I want to program my Excel file in such a way that once I scan a box, it will directly compare it with any of the 10-existing bar code, to check if the barcode match's (then turn that barcode green) or not (turn that barcode red maybe). In case that there are only 8 boxes scanned and 10 barcodes exist in excel file, I want to set up a trigger which will inform me that only 8 boxes were scanned/checked or that 2 barcodes/box are not scanned.

Also can the Trigger send an email or notification ? - I don't know much about this stuff.

Any formulas, VBA, or macros or any other ideas and suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. Let me know if this makes sense or you need more information.

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.
