Trouble getting any event to fire in Exccel 2007

I debugged my database code inside an event that starts with:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)

and all was fine. I was getting ready for my first source code check-in and must have deleted something on the Excel document because that event is not longer firing.

It was working anytime I moved the mouse on Sheet2.

Any idea how to get it wokring again??

Thanks.

In the Immediate window type:

    Application.EnableEvents = True

and press ENTER.

Sometimes, while debugging, we stop code execution when the code as executed:

    Application.EnableEvents = False

but has not yet executed:

    Application.EnableEvents = True

This leaves the application environment in a state we do not normally want.

Also, make sure macros are enabled when the workbook is opened.

Do I simply need to paste in "Application.EnableEvents = True"?

Do I need to execute it?

Yes.

And make sure macros are enabled.

Or you can just quit and restart Excel.

>   Yes.

Yes, what?

Do I need to execute it and how do I do so? Or is pasting it sufficient?
