Excel based change log written in VBA

VBA ChangeLog


The inspiration and starter code for this code was provided by: http://www.ozgrid.com/VBA/track-changes.htm

How mine differs

The code on their page will provide you with a change log recording the following fields:

  • Cell Changed
  • Old Value
  • New Value
  • Time of Change
  • Date of Change

My code will track the following fields:

  • Sheet
  • Cell
  • Old Value
  • New Value
  • Time
  • Date
  • User

The other main difference between the two is my version will also track changes to multiple cells at one time.

Final notes

Please keep in mind I've posted this code here in hopes that its helpful to someone else who also needs similar functionality out of Excel. Given that, there is some stuff in here that is very specific to me. If you run across hardcoded strings that make no sense... then change them.
