Watch Window

Use the Watches property of the Application object to return a Watches collection


The Watch object represents a range which is tracked when the worksheet is recalculated. The Watch object allows users to verify the accuracy of their models and debug problems they encounter. The Watch object is a member of the Watches collection.



In the following example, Microsoft Excel creates a new Watch object using the Add method. This example creates a summation formula in cell A3, and then adds this cell to the watch facility.

Sub AddWatch() 
    With Application
        .Range("A1").Formula = 1
        .Range("A2").Formula = 2
        .Range("A3").Formula = "=Sum(A1:A2)"
        .Range("A3").Select
        .Watches.Add Source:=ActiveCell
    End With
End Sub

You can specify to remove individual cells from the watch facility by using the Delete method of the Watches collection. This example deletes cell A3 on worksheet 1 of book 1 from the Watch Window. This example assumes you have added the cell A3 on sheet 1 of book 1 (using the previous example to add a Watch object).


Sub DeleteAWatch() 
    Application.Watches(Workbooks("Book1").Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A3")).Delete
End Sub

You can also specify to remove all cells from the Watch Window, by using the Delete method of the Watches collection. This example deletes all cells from the Watch Window.
You can also specify to remove all cells from the Watch Window, by using the Delete method of the Watches collection. This example deletes all cells from the Watch Window.


Sub DeleteAllWatches() 
    Application.Watches.Delete
End Sub
