Excel UserForm.Show "Code execution has been interruped" error

I have a button on a worksheet that when clicked executes:
Private Sub cmdGetQuote_Click()
End Sub

Open in new window

The first time the button is clicked, the user form shows.  I have a listbox come up and they click the item they want, then click the OK button, which goes through the list box and returns the selected value to the current worksheet.
Private Sub cmdOK_Click()
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    Dim lngItem As Long
    Dim I As Long
    Dim msg As String
    If ListBox1.ListIndex <> -1 Then
        For I = 0 To ListBox1.ColumnCount - 1
            msg = msg & ListBox1.Column(I) & vbCrLf
        Next I
    End If

    For lngItem = 0 To ListBox1.ListCount - 1
        If ListBox1.Selected(lngItem) Then
            With Sheets("Sheet1") '< qualify sheet here
                .Range("B2").Value = ListBox1.List(lngItem, 0)
            End With
        End If
    Next lngItem
    Unload Me
  Unload Me
  Exit Sub
  MsgBox "Error: " & Err.Number & " " & Err.Description & " :ListBox1_DblClick"
  GoTo ExitHandler
End Sub

Open in new window

I am then back at Sheet1 and see my value in cell B2.  Then the problem occurs.  I click on the button to show the form again and I get the Microsoft Visual Basic Error dialog box with the error:
Code execution has been interruped

If I click continue, everything is fine.  
Why am I getting this?
How do I prevent this from happening?

I can't see anything in the code, can you attach the workbook.
Did you try re-booting your system?? That should take care of the same...

I used your suggestion, thanks for the help.
I still was getting the error and ended up putting this:
before the "end with"

It seems you have to be doing something in the worksheet before you click the button again, or this error continues to come up.

Thanks again for your help.
I just encountered this error today and found this solution:

    Press "Debug" button in the popup.
    Press Ctrl+Pause|Break twice.
    Hit the play button to continue.
    Save the file after completion.

Thanks for taking the time to post that approach, jeffreywsmith.

I have had mixed results with that in the past, & often found the issue reoccurs; most often within the intended run-time environment when a user cannot use the "Debug" option (due to the VB[A]Project environment being password protected).

Useful to bypass the issue for the short term, though.
