How to use the macro ?
This macro should be used always with Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) and it needs to be put in the corresponding sheet.
How is the macro ?
Copy the code below and paste it into your macro. You will see my comments in green if exist so follow the help to adapt to your need.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim i As Integer
i = 1
' change 1 = A by the column number where each time you click, a popup comes out
If Target.Column = 1 Then
' changefirst 1 = A by the same column number
' change second 1 = A and 3 = C by the column number about which data you want to display
If Not IsEmpty(Target.Cells(i, 1)) Then _
MsgBox "ID: " &Target.Cells(i, 1) & vbNewLine & _
"Description: "&Target.Cells(i, 3)
' to put a title for the msgbox, at the end of this line above put: , vbOKOnly, "my title"
So if the cells in the column A have a value, each time, I click in one of the cells, a message will come out, showing the value of other cells in the same row. For more options, check the Microsoft MsgBox webpage.
