I am trying to write a code for flashing cell in Microsoft excel 2010.
I am using a code found online to do this however I continually get an error, the bold line

Runtime error '1004'
Method 'OnTime' of object'_Application' failed

Dim NextTime As Date


Sub StartFlash()
NextTime = Now + TimeValue("00:00:01")
With ActiveWorkbook.Styles("Flashing").Font
If .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic Then .ColorIndex = 3
.ColorIndex = 5 - .ColorIndex
End With
Application.OnTime NextTime, "StartFlash"
End Sub


Sub StopFlash()
Application.OnTime NextTime, "StartFlash", schedule:=False
ActiveWorkbook.Styles("Flashing").Font.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
End Sub

Do you actually have a Styles called "Flashing" on your computer ??
That is most likely your problem !!

You'll get that error if StopFlash runs when StartFlash hasn't been run. How are you running the code?
