Have you ever had a macro that does not produce the desired result if you run it, but does exactly what was intended if you step-in through each command? I have this problem with one I’ve written to complete several tasks on multiple worksheets. I’ve tested it over and over, but can’t identify the problem since it works perfectly in edit as I step through using F8. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I just published a blog post and video series on how to create a Personal Macro Workbook. This includes a video on how to customize the Excel ribbon to add tabs and buttons to run your macro. You can also add buttons to the Quick Access Toolbar to run your buttons.
