You are here:

Excel/Performing an If check and then entering different values in different cells based on said if.


Hi Tom,

I am able to create a button that prints a selected range on my sheet.
However after it prints I would like the button to also initialize an If statement that checks the value in cell B1, which will be a time in 09:00 AM format, and based on what the time is it will then select the corresponding cell on a different part of the same sheet and in this cell I want it to place the value of cell B4. So if the time is 10am then on the cell that corresponds to ten am call it D4 it should enter whatever was written in cell B4, which will be an address.

Thank you for your help.


Your description lacks most of the details.
Here is some pseudo code that should point you in the right direction.  Hopefully you can adapt it to your needs.

Regardless of the format of B1, I assume that B1 holds an actual Excel time value.

Sub ABC()
Dim dt As Date
dt = Range("B1")
Select Case dt
Case TimeSerial(8, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(8, 59, 59)
  Range("C4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(9, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(9, 59, 59)
  Range("D4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(10, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(10, 59, 59)
  Range("E4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(11, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(11, 59, 59)
  Range("F4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(12, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(12, 59, 59)
  Range("G4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(13, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(13, 59, 59)
  Range("H4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(14, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(14, 59, 59)
  Range("I4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(15, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(15, 59, 59)
  Range("J4").Value = Range("B4").Value
Case TimeSerial(16, 0, 0) To TimeSerial(16, 59, 59)
  Range("K4").Value = Range("B4").Value
End Select
End Sub
