Question
Hi Tom

These two pieces of code are operated by two separated form control buttos.  

Is it possible to merge the two pieces of code so that they are controlled by one button?  I.e the button is pressed and it activates the first piece of code.  When the3 button is preseed again the other piece of code is activated.

Thanks in advance

Chris

   ActiveSheet.Calculate

   
   
End Sub

   ActiveSheet.Calculate
   
'    Range("A1").Select

Answer
Christopher Mitchell,

Paste this code in a general module (Insert=>Module)

right click on your button, choose assign macro and select this subroutine:

Sub Button_Click()
Dim btn As Button, s As String, sName As String
s = Application.Caller
Set btn = ActiveSheet.Buttons(s)
sName = btn.Caption

Select Case LCase(sName)

 Case "chartaut1"
'
' CHARTAUT1 Macro
' Sub CHARTAUT1()

   ActiveSheet.Calculate
'    Range("A1").Select
'MsgBox "AA100"
   Range("AA100").Select
   ActiveSheet.Calculate
   btn.Caption = "ManhattonAut1"
 
 Case "manhattonaut1"

   'Sub ManhattonAUT1()
   ActiveSheet.Calculate
'    Range("A1").Select
'    MsgBox "AA756"
   Range("AA756").Select
   ActiveSheet.Calculate
   btn.Caption = "CHARTAUT1"
   
Case Else
   btn.Caption = "CHARTAUT1"
   
End Select
   
End Sub
