I have created a button control on a spreadsheet page. I created a BASIC code sub to clear a group of cells and have set the code to execute when the button is clicked. The problem is that when I click the button, it is acting as though I'm still editing the buttons size and position. It gets the little corner markers for sizing the button and such. How do I make the button "Active" so that clicking it will cause the code to fire instead of it going into this edit mode?

Thanks!

You need to switch design mode off - look for the icon that looks like a set square and ruler
