Hi All,

I guess most of us would have come across this issue whenever we try to use excel macros (MS excel VBO) that "macro error pop ups"

If we could create a action in ms excel VBO, to close the error pop up and carry the error note inside the object that will be great.

Hi @Janarthanan Rameshbabu

Take a look at this VBO on the Digital Exchange​. It's an "extended" version of the MS Excel VBO and includes additional functionality. One of the new actions is "Run Macro with Parallel Thread". In a nutshell, it launches a separate thread that looks for dialogs that popup while the macro is running. If a dialog pops-up, it will dismiss it.

Cheers,
