Hi All,


Is there a way through VBA to move the “flashing line cursor” of which blinks inside a cell?

For example, if the flashing line cursor remains idle inside a cell for example over a minute?

This case is popping up when the user starts to type an entry inside a cell then leaves the cell with the flashing line cursor idle/inactive inside of that cell.

Is there a way to then move the flashing line cursor to another cell or to allow the cell to accept whatever entry is typed if idle for over a minute?

Please let me know.


Thank you,
Pinaceous

Do you just want to exit edit mode after a minute ?

I am not sure I have understood the above question

And why do you need this ?

Hi Jaafar Tribak,

I'm sorry for the delayed response, something of an urgent manner came up for me that I had to attend to.

Basically what is happening is that the user has activated a cell and doesn't type anything when activated in producing a mandatory pop-up produced by excel.

Normally, I would not mind this pop-up but it has become somewhat of an issue with the users.

Although the response from post #3 is not what I’m after, I would like an excel pop-up killer for this application.

Can you help me?

Thank you,
Paul
