Setting a breakpoint in VBA using Excel 2007

I am starting to code in VBA Excel 2007 but want to have the code to stop at a breakpoint. When I press F9 on the code, it displays the red dot, so I get the feeling it should stop there. But it does not.

What do I need to do?

Thanks,

The code is probably not being executed. Is it inside a condition? Set the break point in another location that you are sure will be executed.

If you are sure the code is being executed, try using a Stop statement.

It means that the code doesn't get there. Put a breakpoint at the top of the procedure. Does it get there? And it would help to post your code and indicate where you have the breakpoint set.

Are you sure the code line where you set the breakpoint is actually being executed and note if stepping through then there is no stop as such ... only if it runs normally.

Also you can add a command STOP ... this will stop the code if the instruction is encountered.
