Worksheet Change event only works the second time a change occurs

Hello All,

I am really hoping to get some advise as this problem has been driving me crazy for about a week now. I have tried many different variations of the below code and nothing seems to make a different. There are a lot of lines in this code but my main concern is regarding the cell "O2" near the bottom. The ranges referred to above work just fine. For some odd reason, the line O2 only works after a second change happens within that cell. Every time after that works perfectly. I cant understand why the first time it does not work!! A loan number should go into cell O2. If I do that when I open the sheet it doesn't work. If I simply hit enter again, in the same cell, (not typing anything new) then it works. Same with deleting it and re-entering it. I need it to work, the first time a loan number is entered into cell O2. I would greatly appreciate any advise.

Things I have tried:
changing the line to: If Not Intersect(Target, Range("O2")) Is Nothing Then ---- same thing with putting $O$2
putting application.enableevents = false under each line --- I know this probably isn't necessary but I couldn't figure out what else to do and thought maybe this was the problem
putting application.enableevents = true in the immediately window each time I open the worksheet ------------doing that a million times didn't do anything either
putting an errorhandler - the macro1 you see in the code is just a macro that has application.enableevents = true in it ----- again, trying anything here....

please help!!!

Without the files needed to run the code it is going to be near impossible to find the cause of such an anomaly in so many lines of code.
I have noticed that you're using 'Set Target' in several places, this will be breaking the link to the actual Target cell, which could well be the cause of the problem. Most likely the code is working the first time that a change is made, but it is ending without doing anything useful due to the way that it has been written.

Normal practice would be to keep Target as the original range that triggered the code, then use a second range, e.g. Set rng = Target and manipulate rng as needed while keeping Target tied to the original cell.

Hi,

What a lot of code but glancing through it you have lines of code like this

Rich (BB code):
Application.EnableEvents = False

Set Target = ws.Range("F8")

If Target.Address <> "$F$8" Then Exit Sub


You MUST explicitly reset EnableEvents to True BEFORE exiting the code otherwise all events will continue to be disabled.

Suggest that you amend your Exit Subs to Goto ErrorHandler to direct codes exit at this point where you reset the event

Hope Helpful

Dave

Try adding some code to help you understand what is going on. You can remove the msgbox statements later.

VBA Code:
    ' STARTING HERE IS MY PROBLEM
    Dim CellRange As Range
    On Error Resume Next
    Set CellRange = ws.Range("O2")
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

    If Not CellRange Is Nothing Then
        Set Target = CellRange
          MsgBox "Target address: " & Target.Address, , "Success"
    End If

    If Target.Address <> "$O$2" Then
        MsgBox "Abort. Bad Target address: " & Target.Address, vbCritical, "Target.Address <> $O$2"
        Exit Sub
    End If
