‘Now that all the reasonable safeguards have been met,
‘Declare two Double type variables:
‘one named OldVal for the numeric value that was in the cell
‘before it got changed,
‘and the other variable named NewVal for the numeric value
‘that was just entered that triggered this Change event.
Dim OldVal As Double, NewVal As Double
‘Define the NewVal variable first, as it is the number that
‘was just entered into the cell.
NewVal = Target.Value
‘Undo the entry in order to display the old (preceding) value.
‘Again, this requires that you disable events in order to not
‘re-trigger the Change event while you are already in a Change event.
Application.EnableEvents = False
‘Execute Undo so the previous value is re-established.
‘Define the OldVal variable which is possible to do now that
‘the previous value has been restored.
OldVal = Target.Value
‘Programmatically enter into the cell the sum of the old previous value,
‘plus the new last-entered value, by referring to those two variables
‘in an arithmetic equation just as you would if they were numbers.
Target.Value = OldVal + NewVal
‘Enable events now that all the changes to the cell have been made.
Application.EnableEvents = True
