EE Pros,

I need a rather simple macro.  I need a macro that fires when you press the button and it produces a "1" or a "2" in the helper cell.

Sample attached.

Thank you in advance.

The above will randomly show 1 or 2.

You should also add this to the sheet code.
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Randomize
End Sub

Martin,

If I do not want random, but want press once I get 1, press again, I get 2.  Then I comment out the Private Sub..... right?

Also, if I want to make it a doubleclick..... is it double_click?

This is for single clicks.
Sub RoundedRectangle1_Click()
Static Toggle As Boolean
If Toggle Then
    Range("G8") = 2
    Toggle = False
Else
    Range("G8") = 1
    Toggle = True
End If
End Sub

Please see my post above, and AFAIK there is no double-click for a shape. You'd need to use an ActiveX command button but that's usually not a good idea.
