If it's in a code module, the function needs to be Public.

It is public


However, I may be doing some other fundamental thing wrong...

Perhaps you could have a quick look???

I added a module to your workbook and moved your function to it and it runs for me. Give her a go.

I was going to do that but then I saw that it was homework so I thought I'd leave it to the student. Oh well.
