Hi

I have and excel file with vba code.

When sent to another person it correctly opens in protected view. When I click the "enable editing" it runs the code but comes up with an error when "ActiveWorkbook.Name" finds no workbook.

Restart the workbook and all is fine.

Any thoughts please?
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Found the problem.
Previously on opening I had put ThisWorkbook.Name and no error.
Changed it to ActiveWorkbook.Name and error as workbook had not been made active.

Only showed up after download.
