What This VBA Code Does
Having dual monitors is one of the best was to increase efficiency as a data analyst. It was like Christmas when I was able to obtain a second monitor from my friends down in the IT Department.
While using my dual monitor setup with Excel, I noticed that some of my add-ins were launching userforms on the monitor that wasn't housing my Excel window. This became very annoying and I soon started investigating why this was happening and how to fix it.
While consulting my good friend Google, I came across some code on The Spreadsheet Page's website that worked perfectly. I tweaked it a little bit (shown below), but the general concept remains the same. Just paste the code below in your userform's code module and you should be good to go!
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
'PURPOSE: Position userform to center of Excel Window (important for dual monitor compatibility)
'Start Userform Centered inside Excel Screen (for dual monitors)
Me.StartUpPosition = 0
Me.Left = Application.Left + (0.5 * Application.Width) - (0.5 * Me.Width)
Me.Top = Application.Top + (0.5 * Application.Height) - (0.5 * Me.Height)
