UDF stops running if I hot-key to another task

I have a UDF that does some iterative calculations. It can take anywhere from about 2 to 8-10 seconds to complete its work. The data, which I enter into an InputBox, comes from another application. If I hot-key over to the other application, the UDF stops running until I hot-key back.

Is there a way to get it to keep running even when Excel is not the active task?

Ooopppsss. I was wrong. The UDF does not stop running. It's something to do with the InputBox. If I hot-key just as it is being displayed, Excel goes into a funny mode where the Icon in the Taskbar starts flashing.
