I’d like a VBA scirpt to increase a cell value by 1, every time I save & close a spreadsheet.


Can anyone provide a script to do so?


The cell location is B14
The filename is test.xlsx
The file locations is c:\temp


Many thanks in advance.

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Range("B14") = Range("B14") + 1
End Sub
stored within the thisworkbook module within VBA.

This will increment the value in cell B14 (of whichever worksheet is currently active) by one every time you save the file. Closing/reopening will not be counted because you can choose not to save when this happens, and saving changes automatically is a bad idea in case you screw something up and want to discard it...

You won't be able to save as a .xlsx, you'll need to use .xlsm
