VBA Vlookup


I have having a slight problem with an offset.

As part of a Case statement, I have the following code:

Select Case Target.Column
Case 1
If Target.Column = 1 Then
If Len(Target) Then
Target.Offset(, 4).Value = Date
cell.Offset(, 5).Value = WorksheetFunction.Vlookup(Target, Sheets("ITFC Returns").Range("B:C"), 2, False)
cell.Offset(, 5).Value = WorksheetFunction.Vlookup(Target, Sheets("LML Returns").Range("B:C"), 2, False)
If cell.Offset(, 5).Value = "ITFC" Then
cell.Offset(, 7).Value = Date

End If
If cell.Offset(, 5).Value = "LML" Then
cell.Offset(, 7).Value = Date
End If
If cell.Offset(, 5).Value = "" Then
cell.Offset(, 5).Value = "IN CHISWICK"
cell.Offset(, 7).Value = Date
End If
cell.Offset(, 4).Value = ""
cell.Offset(, 5).Value = ""

End If
End If

My problem is that it is not actually activating the vlookup formula at all without me pressing F2 and enter in the cell in column A. I'm sure that there is an easy fix to this.

My other issue is that the VLookup is not working like a formula and not always active, ie if the lookup value is deleted from the lookup location, it does not update where the lookup result goes.

Would you be able to help me make the vlookup always active so that it is always looking for an answer?

I would greatly appreciate your assistance with the above

Many thanks


RE: VBA Vlookup

Hello Miles,

Without seeing the worksheet and code in context its difficult to solve the issue. If you could send over a sample of the code and its relevant worksheet to mm@stl-training.co.uk then I'll look at this for you

If you require further assistance, please reply to this post. Or perhaps you have another Microsoft Office question?

Have a great day.

Hi Mark

I was wondering if you have received my workbook sent via email? I have not received a response so therefore did not know if you have received it.

VBA tip:

Empty The Clipboard with CutCopyMode

After each Copy/Paste operation in VBA, you should use the following line of code to empty the clipboard. This ensures that the computer memory doesn't overload:

Application.CutCopyMode = False
