it works fine in one workbook, now i tried to do the same thing in another workbook and i got a compiling error because of the selectionchange. i'm pretty new in vba - maybe it's because i already got a private sub worksheet_selectionchange? do you know how i can fix this?

I think it should specify that the button has to be an ActiveX one to the code work. ^.^'

Not good QA - check your name on the button. If this is what gets published for the Web community to see, what goes in behind the scenes with the code? :-)
