Excel: SELECT.END() Doesn't Work on Minimized Worksheets

Last reviewed: September 12, 1996
Article ID: Q101455

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 4.0, 4.0a


In Microsoft Excel, when you run the SELECT.END() function on a minimized worksheet, the command appears to be executed successfully; however, no action is taken and no error message is generated. This problem occurs when using any of the values (1-4) within the SELECT.END function.


The SELECT.END() function works properly if the worksheet is restored or maximized. To work around this problem, use the following commands to maximize or restore the worksheet:

  • To restore the worksheet, use the WINDOW.RESTORE() function. -or-
  • To maximize the worksheet, use the WINDOW.MAXIMIZE() function.

The WINDOW.MINIMIZE() command can also be used after the SELECT.END() command to restore the worksheet to a minimized state. The SELECT.END() function also works properly on a hidden sheet.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Excel listed above. This problem was corrected in version 5.0 of Microsoft Excel for Windows.
