    Deactivate Split Window

    Hi All,

    I have a workbook with multiple worksheets, with one worksheet that has two macros assigned to buttons on that one sheet. The macros are designed to vertically split the window, then to reset the view to normal.
    The macro attached to the first button is:

    The macro attached to the second button is:

    Both macros work fine as long as that one sheet is active. The problem is, when I switch to a different sheet in that workbook, or a different sheet in a different workbook, without resetting the view first, the split view remains and I get multiple vertical windows.
    When I tried this code in the worksheet object:

    The view will reset but I keep getting a prompt to save changes to the workbook when I switch to a different sheet.
    Any guidance as to what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Re: Deactivate Split Window Update

    I've done some updates to the buttons to improve the format and rule out some variables. Button 1:

    Button 2:

    I still havent found a good way to deactivate the view on the worksheet deactrivate event, and still have the problem that if an open workbook exists, the first macro will pull whatever the active sheet is in to the split view, making 3 or more windows instead of two however.
    Also, does anyone know of a good way to activate either window 1 or 2 without using the specific name of the workbook, but just referencing this workbook? I'm attempting to rule out any changes to the workbook name.

    Thanks!

    What happens if you comment out the

    line in your initial Deactivate code? This should restrict to active workbook only, though have only had a quick look at your problem.

    Re: Deactivate Split Window

    Hello Steven, thanks for the reply.
    Looks like I get a run time error when I do that, but after I uncommented again, it seems like the window is now deactivating when switching between different sheets in the same book, which solves the first problem. I must have been doing something wrong lol.
    Any ideas on how to fix the other open work book problem though?
