Using Excel Events

Excel events cover a wide range of activities at the Application, Workbook, Worksheet, Form and other object levels. A good starting point to read about events is in the following link:

Excel Events

Besides events, two special modules can be created in the General Module area that will execute at workbook startup and workbook shut down. The link to that discussion is Here

The most common usage of events is probably in the UserForm area. Events triggered by the User Form area include:

The user can also be alerted to any cells changes in a worksheet using the Worksheet_Change event. The examples below will show a few event processing subroutines.

Program Code
