visual basic for application setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • when I installed office 2010, the word VBA development screen,using the  "visual basic for application" shows the "immediate window" and the "watch window" VERY WELL docked to the low bar of the mentioned "visual basic for application window" main window.

    After many hide and show operations, the small windows does not dock any more, nor matter were I click  ON or OFF on the TOOLS-->OPTIONS--> DOCKING tab.

    I am sure there is a RESET WINDOWS configuration somewere, but I feel very stupid, can not find it.

    any hint pls

    thanks in advance

  • Once you enable docking, try to drag and drop the window to the bottom so it will get docked.

  • Hi Hashim

    thanks a lot, but on my case is not solving the issue.

    I tried with the " watch window"

    It just seat were I drop it, anywhere on the screen, having the  "visual basic for application"  occupying the full screen.  

    hope we can find other way.

    thanks again

  • Hi Juan,

    This is a VBA issue, in order to give you a better support , I will move it  to “Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)” forum.

    Thank you for your understanding!

    I tried again and found following

    If I try to dock the (WATCH windows, for example) to the bottom, no luck.

    But if I do it at the top, its docks perfectly.

    now, the problem is how to swap the code window with the watch one, so I can have the code window at top, and the watch window at the bottom.

    very estrange behavior, I think

    thanks very much

  • does not work.

    when the watch window docks at the top, the main window re-sizes ( which is correct ), so I have two independent joining windows ( code + watch )

    Now if I drop the top WATCH  docked window to the bottom , the code window grows to full screen, an the watch window seats over the code, hiding part of it..    This because the docking at the bottom does not re-size the code window, just stay behind.

    very estrange
