A question on Application Events in Excel
I am developing an Excel add-in. It works on any worksheet that you may open.
One of the things that the add-in does is this:
If there is conditional formatting (e.g., Red background), then clicking on any cell will clear all conditional formatting.
I use Application Events to do my add-in because I want my add-in to respond to SheetSelectionChange happening in other workbooks.
My add-in works fine, but there is a small annoyance:
The outside workbook must be opened only if the add-in is already installed in Excel.
If you open your workbook first, and then install the add-in, it will not work. Just close the workbook, and reopen it, and it's be OK.
In the ThisWorkbook code of the add-in, I have:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Set mApp = Application
Must I necessarily OPEN a workbook to trigger Set mApp = Application?
Is there another way to trigger Set mApp = Application, so that my Add-in will work even if the workbook is opened FIRST, and then the Add-in is opened?
I am very new to Application Events, and things are not very clear in my mind.
