When you first start out using VBA and writing VBA (macro) code it is useful that the VBA Editor helps you quickly identify when you have made a mistake. If a line of code has an error it will display a dialog box that explains the error and turns the line of code red.
Once you have been coding for a while and are comfortable with coding, the dialog boxes that you have to respond to, can slow you down and become annoying.
You can turn off the error dialog boxes that appear as you code. This will still leave the line of code in red if it has an error.
In the VBA window click the Tools menu and click Options.
Untick the “Auto Syntax Check” option.
Note – I also have the “Require Variable Declaration” option ticked to make sure I create a Dim statement for all variables I use. With this option Excel warns you of all variables that don’t have a Dim statement. This reduces errors due to typing errors with variable names.
