Can't activate open files when debugging anymore

I'm not sure when this started happening but it's very frustrating because i can't see what's happening on the worksheet being addressed when a message box comes up and/or it bugs without cancelling out of the debugger.

How do I fix this so that that I have that functionality as i always did in the past. I'm using Excel 2010, and it used to work when i first started using 2010.

Thanks,
John

Are you talking about VBA code? If so this article of mine (which applies to both VBA and VB6) may help.

Hi Martin, thanks. VBA. Great article that has a lot of helpful hints, but I couldn't find anything in it about my current inability to go examine other workbooks while in the middle of debugging. Any more thoughts?

Thanks,
John
