Get selected cells in VBA

Get selected cells in VBA

Get selected cells in VBA

I'm trying to get the cells that are currently selected by the user in VBA.  The ActiveModelReferences says that there is somthing selected but ActiveModelReference.GetSelectedElements returns nothing.  The cells are named, but that dosent help me since there are hundreds of the same cells, i want the ones that have been selected.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.

RE: Get selected cells in VBA

dkleinot, try this code and let us know if it helps.

Sub SelectionTest()
    Dim ee As ElementEnumerator

    If ActiveModelReference.AnyElementsSelected Then
        Set ee = ActiveModelReference.GetSelectedElements

        If ee Is Nothing Then

            Debug.Print "ActiveModelReference.GetSelectedElements returned nothing"


            Do While ee.MoveNext

                Select Case ee.Current.Type

                    Case msdElementTypeCellHeader

                        Debug.Print "Cell Name = " & ee.Current.AsCellElement.Name

                    Case msdElementTypeSharedCell

                        Debug.Print "Shared Cell Name = " & ee.Current.AsSharedCellElement.Name

                    Case Else

                        Debug.Print "Not a cell - Element Type = " & CStr(ee.Current.Type)

                End Select


        End If


        Debug.Print "No Elements selected"

    End If

End Sub
