Hi ,
Problem statement : We are having a UDF in our EXCEL 2016 and a subroutine. UDF at present commented. After execution of few lines in subroutine we want to uncomment UDF using vba code only.

Please suggest whether it is possible using code, if it is then would request to provide code for the same.

Uncommenting code using VBA is not possible. You could however create a global Boolean variable in VBA called, say, gbSkip which you would initially set to True, and then in the UDF add this as the first line:
If gbSkip = True then Exit Function
When you want to "uncomment" the UDF, set gbSkip to False.

Why not simply use conditional code such as If-Then and/or Exit Sub statements to call the UDF only when needed?
