Hello,

is that in all Excel files or just in one? Do you have the latest Service Pack installed?

If it's just one file, maybe you could post it here.

cheers, teylyn

Try the other Alt key or plug in another keyboard as a test - perhaps its a problem with the keyboard.


Download the attached and hit the button, then test hitting Alt-Enter using one and the other Alt keys.  Also, try to use the enter key from your numeric keypad if you have one.

If any one of the combinations doesn't give you a pop-up, then you have a keyboard problem perhaps with that particular combination.


PS - be sure to hit the Reset button when you're done testing, or the macro will keep checking for that combination until you close out Excel.

Cheers,

Dave
