    Refresh Screen Display

    Hi all,

    Using Excel 2013 64-bit.

    How can I refresh the screen display at run-time to the user can see new sheets that have been added and possibly click on a cell if they choose to do so?
    The code I have tried so far does not update the display before offering the prompt so the user may choose a different cell

    MsgBox is modal; when dismissed, the code resumes running.

    You could instead use Application.InputBox with type:=8 to enable the user to select a cell.

    Thanks shg,

    I guess I thought since all of the refresh stuff came before the MsgBox that the screen would update before the first msgbox
    I commented out the first msgbox - same result.

    I do have the Inputbox inside the Select Case of the msgbox.

    Any other ideas?
    thx

    Still not updating so that I may select a cell from the control worksheet.
    Revised code below in case I did not add your code correctly.

    You need to turn screenupdating back on first.

    Thanks shg,

    I thought some of the other methods would update the screen display?
    No matter, the screen display now updates - thanks.

    I took out the MsgBox and Do Loop because they seemed redundant, the InputBox seems to be enough.

    However I am receiving a Type Mismatch error at this line

    In my test I chose, "Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance" and during debugging that is the value of sCriteria.
    What could cuase this error?
    I get the same error message with or without the Redim statement which I feel is not needed in this case.

    thx

    The Array function returns a Variant; it can't be assigned to string array, only a Variant.
