    Yes sad news indeed. I think he was the first person who answered my first ever question many years ago. He was always helpful and will be missed. Rest in peace Chip

    Chip's site was one of the most highly visited and sought pages before the advent of Excel forums and Stack flow. He has elevated VBA and excel to their peaks.
    RIP

    If you want something done right... find a forum and ask an online expert.

    The site's back up again. Just tested it.
    Avoid using Select, Selection and Activate in your code. Use With ... End With instead.

    Marvin mentioned in Ford's thread. So very sad. As I said there, although he was 15 years my junior, he was my hero "growing up" with Excel. He will be missed. RIP Chip
