Hi All

I have the following code on a worksheet,

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Address > "$L " Then ActiveCell.Offset(rowOffset:=1, columnOffset:=-9).Activate

End Sub

Is it possible to cancel this code from a macro, so that the macro can run properly

Thanks a lot

Colin
 

Excel Facts

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.
You can disable events like this:

Application.EnableEvents = False

and enable them sfterwards like this:

Application.EnableEvents = True

I'm not sure if what you are asking is possible, but there is another way around it:

1st, I assume that the macro is selecting a range.

Have the first line of the macro put a value (such as FALSE) into some obscure cell (or into some variable that is accessed by both the macro and the selectionchange routine.

In the first line of the selectionchange routine, put an If/Then statment that doesn't allow the body of the routine to run if the cell or variable value is as assigned by the first line of the macro.

In the last line of the macro, change the cell or variable value back (like to TRUE).

Hope that helps.
F.T.
