Experts,
I am looking to create a Timer clock displaying in an Excel spreadsheet.  After a comandbutton is pressed a timer counter needs to start.  This will continue to count up until next time command button is pressed.  At that point it will reset to zero and start counting up again.

Vaild solution but i took different approach.

Dim Start, Finish, TotalTime, FFMinutes
FFMinutes = 0
    Start = Timer ' Set start time.
Do While Finish <> 10000000000#
        Finish = Timer    ' Set end time.
        TotalTime = Finish - Start    ' Calculate total time.
        DoEvents    ' Yield to other processes.
        If TotalTime >= 59 Then
            FFMinutes = FFMinutes + 1
            Start = Timer
            Worksheets("PickHistory").Range("l1") = FFMinutes
            TotalTime = 0
            Worksheets("PickHistory").Range("m1") = TotalTime
        Else
            Worksheets("PickHistory").Range("l1") = FFMinutes
            Worksheets("PickHistory").Range("m1") = TotalTime
        End If

    Loop
