    can't debug some subroutines in my project, locked subroutines

    Hi All,

    I've run into a "new-for-me" problem; when I try to debug some of subroutines in my project (say by stepping into with F8) just get a beep and nothing happens.

    I suspect there is a hidden process going on somewhere, which locks them, but I don't know how to find/stop it. I do use the ShellWait sub by Terry Kreft to run some windows batch processes, but as far as I am concerned those run and finish without error.

    Any help will save my sanity, please folks!

    When exactly do you get the beep?

    Is it when you try to call these sub/functions from other sub/functions?

    Can you post an example of the code?
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    are you trying to step into routines that take arguments?

    Yes, when I'm trying to step into subroutines that take arguments.
    I can't possibly post the code - 5 modules & 5 wks with code

    I didn't say all the code, an example of the code might do.

    you can't step straight into routines that take arguments since you can't pass arguments that way

    I thought you were debugging code that was calling subs.
