For some reason whenever I press F5 or have screen updating off, my Excel freezes up and no longer responds. But when I go through the code and run it line by line, it runs just fine. Is this a software/hardware issue or a coding issue? Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi Alex,

Try adding the bottom line of code: Application.ScreenUpdating = True

In the event triggering subroutine use this code template:
Application.EnableEvents = False
' ... Your code
Application.EnableEvents = True

Also for kicks be sure to reboot your PC (turn if completely off and then on again) - this has been known to help in cases like this.
