short cut keys not working (Ctrl+)

  • We have Excel 97 on 5 of our computers. It behaves differently on a couple of the computers. On a particular spreadsheet that has macros in it, when you want to activate a macro, for example Ctrl+A, it will not work. But on a different computer it does. Is there a setting in Excel that needs to be set that is being overlooked? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    I had this problem with a VBA macro that I had renamed. I copied the code into a new unit and retained the default "modulex" name. Then assigned the shortcut key and it worked.
