I am using Excel VBA

Is there any way to clear the static event when you click the Refresh Button?

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Private Sub Commandbutton28_Click()
Static intCounter As Integer
intCounter = intCounter + 1
MsgBox "Clicked" & " " & intCounter
End Sub

Private Sub cbRefresh_Click()


End Sub

No, because the Static variable is local to the sub in which it is defined.

You would have to make intCounter a module level variable and simply reset it:

Dim intCounter As Integer

Private Sub Commandbutton28_Click()
  intCounter = intCounter + 1
  MsgBox "Clicked" & " " & intCounter
End Sub

Private Sub cbRefresh_Click()
    intCounter = 0
End Sub

Or, if you absolutely have to keep the static variable then you would have to set a flag to indicate the clear:

Dim bClear As Boolean = False

Private Sub Commandbutton28_Click()
  Static intCounter As Integer
  If bClear Then
      intCounter=0
      bClear = False
  End If
  intCounter = intCounter + 1
  MsgBox "Clicked" & " " & intCounter
End Sub

Private Sub cbRefresh_Click()
    bClear = True
End Sub
