Excel/Running a macro in excel 2003 without using keystrokes



I am trying to run a macro from a formula in a cell on a work sheet.  For example.... =IF A29=1????  this is where I get stuck.. (=IF A29=1 then run the Macro to print the worksheet).

I would like to run the macro that I have recorded.  The Macro will print the worksheet.  the hot key for the Macro is Ctrl+q.... if I hit the hot key the macro works.

Thank you

John Lyons

Assuming you macro was someithing basic like this:

Sub PrintSheet()
    ActiveSheet.Printout Copies:=1
End Sub

You can add a test to the beginning to check cell A29.

Sub PrintSheet()
    If Range("A29") = 1 Then  ActiveSheet.Printout Copies:=1
End Sub
