First, return the CD to your friend. By the MS license (EULA), you've 
stolen it. Second, go buy yourself your own copy. If you cannot afford 
it, check out OpenOffice (openoffice.org). It's free.

Uninstall it and buy your own copy.
Think of the software like a car, you borrow the car but before it will
start you have to register/insure the car - and it can only be registered to
one person.

I t maybe the error setting in VBA is different on each machine.  Check the 
VBA menu

Tools - Options - General - Break on Error.

To debug the problem put a break point on the worksheet change line in the 
VBA code by clicking on the SUB line and pressing F9.  Then go back to the 
worksheet and see if the you reach the break point.  Then Press F5 to 
continue or F8 to step through the code.

I suspect it the Break on Error option that is causing the problem.
