Hi,

Is it possible to activate a macro in excel where i have to wait at a certain point (e.g. a popup or msgbox and wait) because i need data from another application. Then i would like to close/answer to the popup/msgbox and continue the processing of the macro.
Is this possible?

You could just pop up a message box like this:

MsgBox "Click OK when you want to continue...", vbOKOnly

This will stop your application until you click the OK button...
