Is it possible to add events to Excel Shapes using WithEvents?  I've done it with points in an Excel Chart but everywhere I look Experts are saying that Excel shapes can have no events except OnAction.

The short answer is no - the Shape object itself has no exposed events, though controls from the Control toolbox added to a sheet do have events and they (indirectly) form part of the Shapes collection of a worksheet. Can you elaborate as to exactly what you are trying to do?
