Excel/Simple Inventory count

Advertisement


Question
Sir,  I used your worksheet from a prior answer regarding a simple inventory count.  All Im doing is scanning a UPC barcode and counting the number of same items I have, mostly for a home inventory.  I want to shift the whole thing down so I can put headers in rows a1-c1.  Is there a way to alter the workbook to do this?  Here is the work you posted:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim r As Range, r1 As Range
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column = 1 Then
If Len(Trim(Target.Value)) > 0 Then
 Set r = Range("A1", Target.Offset(-1, 0))
 If Application.CountIf(r, Target) > 0 Then
    res = Application.Match(Target, r, 0)
    Set r1 = r(res)
 Else
    Set r1 = Nothing
 End If
 Application.EnableEvents = False
  If Not r1 Is Nothing Then
    With r1.Offset(0, 1)
      .Value = .Value + 1
    End With
    Target.ClearContents
    Target.Select
  Else
    With Target.Offset(0, 1)
      .Value = .Value + 1
    End With
  End If
End If
End If
ErrHandler:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Thanks for your help!

Answer
Mark,

I think this change should allow that.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim r As Range, r1 As Range
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.row = 1 then exit sub
If Target.Column = 1 Then
If Len(Trim(Target.Value)) > 0 Then
 Set r = Range("A2", Target.Offset(-1, 0))
 If Application.CountIf(r, Target) > 0 Then
    res = Application.Match(Target, r, 0)
    Set r1 = r(res)
 Else
    Set r1 = Nothing
 End If
 Application.EnableEvents = False
  If Not r1 Is Nothing Then
    With r1.Offset(0, 1)
      .Value = .Value + 1
    End With
    Target.ClearContents
    Target.Select
  Else
    With Target.Offset(0, 1)
      .Value = .Value + 1
    End With
  End If
End If
End If
ErrHandler:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
