I am novice with anything to do with excel, most self taught.
Right my question is, can a a non Active X control spinner be disabled and then reactivated and the count reset to zero.
I am using the way that is shown on a few Youtube videos.
Have found a way to enable disable my count from the spinner, however if I click the spinner when disabled it will still count up or down. plus when I re enable the line, it returns the count that the spinner was last at, not zero as I would like.
plus a cannot see or find a way to set the spinner back to zero.
Its possible that it can't be done with from control, and only use Active X controls and VBA.
if the later I going to have to learn VBA too.

@Stereone find attached a simple demo of what I am trying to do, first sheet shows the count with spinners, second sheet has the Enabled N/A status.
What I am trying to do is when the input line show N/A there no input and the spinner should not go up or down which it does, would like to set it to zero when showing N/A.
Here hoping something to look might help understand the problem.

See the attached version. It is now a macro-enabled workbook, so you'll have to allow macros when you open it.
To inspect the code, right-click the sheet tab and select 'View Code' from the context menu.

Will you have 100 spinners? If so, it would be helpful if the name of the spinners were consistent - for example Spinner 1 in row 2, Spinner 2 in row 3, etc., without exception.

With spinners in rows 2 to 101, linked to E2:E101, the code would look like this:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rng As Range Dim r As Long If Not Intersect(Range("E2:E101"), Target) Is Nothing Then Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.EnableEvents = False For Each rng In Intersect(Range("E2:E101"), Target) r = rng.Row With Me.Shapes("Spinner " & r + 1).ControlFormat If rng.Value = "Enabled" Then .Enabled = True Else .Value = 0 .Enabled = False End If End With Next rng Application.EnableEvents = True Application.ScreenUpdating = True End If End Sub

@Hans Vogelaar Wow Another Thank you. Never would I have worked that out having only just jumped into this part of coding. Will help a lot in learning how to do this. Like how to set up a loop and many other things. Had been trying with two if statement but nothing, apart from breaking it all.

@Hans Vogelaar Inserted the code into the sheet, It moaned about the spinner numbers first time I ran it, then after checking the spinner numbers to make sure they where in sequence, ran it again ,no complaints, however what it was doing with one if statement no long happens, when N/A is showing it should show zreo and not be able count up/down, this no longer does this.
have also rem parts of the code to say what I think is going on.
have upload the the code so you can have a look.
Thank you if you help again.
what happen before was this
1. N/A showing the pale blue background colour and zero stayed at zero.
2. Enable showing and count is zero, red background colour.
3. Enable showing and count >0 , pale green background colour.

AAAh! the "spinner " & r -1 instead of + 1.
so r=4, with the above code r-1 would be 3 but the incorrect code made it 5.
I see, I am on row 4 but my spinner is number 3.
Thanks , had to write out the above to explain to myself, plus anyone looking in.
