I was testing some code and added breakpoints. I removed the breakpoints but its still stopping in the same places. maybe i have done something silly that i cannot spot?

I have a screen shot here where it stopped.

I tried saving and repair options but it still halts and waits.

No, it's an age old problem in VBA ("Phantom Break points").

Open a code module, add a line of code (like a STOP).  Save and compile.   Then do a "Remove all break points", remove the stop, compile and save.  That usually gets rid of the problem.

You can also cut and paste all the code in a module and/or do a /decompile.

Anything that forces VBA to change the state of the module and be forced to do a recompile.
