Question
Hi Tom

i tried placing this code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.address = "$C$7" Then

 If Len(Trim(Target.Value)) > 0 Then

 Range("F7").Value = ""

 Exit Sub
 End If

If Target.address = "$F$7" Then

 If Len(Trim(Target.Value)) > 0 Then

 Range("C7").Value = ""

 Exit Sub

End If
End If
End If

End Sub

This issue is:  when i click on C7 it pulls the client up and clears out F7 like its supposed to do ....but when i click on F7 and select and select a client nothing happens to C7, which i thought would clear it out.

I am sure its wrong....can you help please?

Tony

Answer
Tony,

Looks like you have improperly nested you conditions.  Based on what you say, I believe you want this:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Address = "$C$7" Then
 If Len(Trim(Target.Value)) > 0 Then
 Range("F7").Value = ""
 Exit Sub
 End If
End If

If Target.Address = "$F$7" Then
 If Len(Trim(Target.Value)) > 0 Then
 Range("C7").Value = ""
 Exit Sub
 End If
End If
End Sub
