Me.ShowDialog Causing the Excel Print Preview Can't Work

Hi There,

In Microsoft Excel, I have integrated my own function to Microsoft Excel.

There is a new tab with new button.

When the button is clicked, a form will show using Me.ShowDialog.

In that form I have an option (using checkbox, when users check the checkbox, it will perform print preview) to allow print preview for Excel documents.

The print preview for Excel documents is working, but the form keep showing in front, causing users unable to scroll down and up to preview the other sheets.

This doesnt happen if using Microsoft Word.

Code that shows print preview in Microsoft Excel:


If the code runs before Me.ShowDialog, users are able to scroll up and down to preview the other sheets.

Best Regards,
Jun Wei

Hello Jun,

Consider using a pane instead of a form.
