VBA code error when running on Apple Mac

The 2013 VBA code at some stages pops up a userform that is dismissed when the user clicks on another sheet's tab. This operation works fine on Excel in Windows.

But on Mac, clicking on another tab causes an error. The userform.hide must require something that's not being done perhaps?

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()

    If UserForm1.Visible = False Then

        UserForm1.Show vbModeless
    
    End If

End Sub

Public Sub Worksheet_Deactivate()

    UserForm1.Hide

End Sub

Open in new window


I think the error is 1004.

Do you think that was not the relevant code? Would other routines intervene?

You can't have modeless forms on a Mac.

I see, thanks.

Then before I close this, would you know of any possible workaround to that?
