Hello,

I have used your UDF as shown below to report a date whenever an entry is made in a row of my excel sheet.

Function LastAttendanceDate(mDates, mTimes As Range)
Dim mCol As Integer
For Each cell In mTimes
    If cell.Value <> vbNullString Then
        mCol = cell.Column
    End If
Next cell
LastAttendanceDate = Cells(mDates.Row, mCol)
End Function.

What I need to to do in addition to this is to IGNORE the characters O (Thats a letter O), or a W and not to change the date if they are used. In other words the date of the last attendance must not change if either of these characters are entered in a row.

I have tried many things but I am now so confused I need your help.

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Slinger,

For that you will need to add the extra conditions to code line 4:
 

Function LastAttendanceDate(mDates, mTimes As Range)
Dim mCol As Integer
For Each cell In mTimes
    If cell.Value <> vbNullString And cell.Value <> "O" And cell.Value <> "W" Then
        mCol = cell.Column
    End If
Next cell
LastAttendanceDate = Cells(mDates.Row, mCol)
End Function

Best regards,
Trowa

HI TrowaD

Thanks for the solution worked well.

Did not even think of extending the IF statement like that.

Many thanks. Saved me more hours of misguided frustration !!

Regards
