I can never remember how to turn off the error messages in VBA while typing.  I know there is a setting that will let the text become red but not pop up the error message.  Can somebody help me find it?

Thanks in advance.

From a VBE window  Tools>Options>Auto Syntax Check.

It is 100% invaluable.  Completely necessary and I would not be sane without it.

Thanks again for your answer.  You have once again come to my aid.  

I like to copy and paste alot and sometimes I leave a line of code to grab another piece of code (variable names, etc).  I never like getting that error message because I know I am coming back to the line to finish it.  

I find it enough to keep the text colored red, but I can see your point too.  Wouldn't a compile point out any of the same errors that "Auto Syntax Check" will find?

For some of us, short term memory is a problem....red lines help in that case(:-)

Well...when I say 'some of us'.......

The points should go to Mike really - he was first
Well, as I said - I HATE the compile error messge box from auto syntax check.  The highlighted text is indeed ample and yes - a compile would highlight the same issues.
I would literally be a gibbering wreck by this stage of my life if every time I'd left a line of partial code I got that ******* message.

Fortunately my short term memory isn't as bad as Pete's. :-)

Oh and the points should go to Mike really - he was first.
Have I mentioned that I hate the auto syntax check?

Leigh,
Thanks, but I did have the spelling mistake: Syntx   ;¬}
Cheers,
Mike

Sorry about that Mike,

For some reason I didn't see your answer....odd.  Is there anyway I can re-apply them?
