worksheet_calculate event

  Asked By: Claude    Date: Mar 19    Category: MS Office    Views: 2319

I have send-email macro that I want to call from a worksheet_calculate

I have a formula in cell that enters 1 in cell A1, when a date compare
formula exucutes. If the result of the calculation causes a "1" to be
placed in cell A1, the send-email macro should be called. Mail_CDO is
the name of the send-email macro.

I have played around with this for a long time and I am getting
multiple firings of the called macro.

Check out Application.EnableEvents
You may need this within your macro  if the macro itself causes the

Application.EnableEvents=False somewhere near the start of the macro,
not forgetting to restore the status quo with
towards the end of the macro.
