Hi All,

My worksheet_change VBA code is located on Sheet1.

There is data validation on this worksheet, so if a user enters data outside the restrictions, then type in "N/A" the macro triggers 3 times.

Why is this the case? Is there any way I can solve it so it only runs once? My code is below.

VBA Code:
Option Explicit

Option Compare Text

Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim rInt As Range
    Dim k As Range
    Dim Substitute As Range
    Dim C As String
    Dim R As String
    With Target
        If .Cells.Count = 1 And Not (Application.Intersect(.Cells, Range("A14:T999")) Is Nothing) Then
            If .Value = "N/A" Then
                Application.EnableEvents = False
                Initials_Comment_Box.TextBox1 = Target.Address
                Initials_Comment_Box.Show
                Application.EnableEvents = True
            End If
        End If
    End With
End Sub

I found here a claim: "Three times: once for the user's first, invalid entry; once for data-validation's restoration of the previous value; and once for the user's updated entry (or acceptance of the restored value, selecting a different cell)."

I need the workbook to function normally - E.g. Be able to still select multiple cells and delete them.
