Hi All

All I want to do is enable the button that I have added to a worksheet to run the code but it just selects the button when I click on it
as if I am still in developer mode.

I am sure that there is easy fix.

Thanks

The most likely reason is that you are in "Design Mode". There is a button on the Developer Tab to toggle it on/off.

Another possible cause is last week's Windows Updates. There are some articles regarding this if you Google "command button stopped working". The solution that worked for me was to close all MS Office programs, and then search for .exd files. Then delete all the files that were found.

I thought that I had sussed it out by turning developer mode off by deselecting the 'Developer' option from the ribbon and closing and reopening the workbook but
now I cannot get back to developer mode to edit the button.

Does anybody know how this should work?
