    Private Sub Workbook_WindowDeactivate(ByVal Wn As Window)... Cancel Argument ?

    Hi, Contrary to many other excel object model events, the Window Deactivate event does not provide a ByRef Cancel argument. I was wondering if there is some workaround so that we could choose whether to allow the workbook window to be closed or to abort the closing action. I am targeting the...

    Should Worksheets And Ranges Be Passed ByVal Or ByRef?

    Hi, I need some clarity on whether it makes more sense to pass objects such as worksheets and ranges ByVal or ByRef. When it comes to simple data types the answer is clear. If you change the value of a variable in the called procedure and want that change to be passed back to the CALLER then...

    VBA pass collection to collection by value, not by reference.

    I am learning VBA and trying to master collections. I am using collections because the ability to remove items seems likes it gives an advantage over arrays when using 2D. I am looking to compare source 1 to source 2. I load both sets into collections. Sample Data source 1 <tbody> A B c...

    byVal vs Public

    I generally define shared variables as Public as opposed to passing them via byVal or byRef. Most commonly, I call a subroutine or function to establish a value for said variable, making it usable anywhere in my script. Will someone please explain to me the benefit of using byVal/byRef vs...

    ByVal v ByRef

    It is my understanding that I should use the ByVal keyword if I am planning to modify the parameter. Is that correct? Or is it bad form to modify the function parameters at all? Example: Public Sub Write2File(byval FileID As String, Data As String) FileID = FileID & ".txt" ...
