    Unanswered: Grrr, function not returning a value to cell

    I have the below function added to "this workbook" in order to fetch a number from a local SQL-Server database based on a value (typicaly from another cell).

    Well, if I call the function in a form button, I get a return value, which is correct.

    But, if I use the function in a cell, nothing happens...

    Am I missing something obvious? I must admit I've never made use of functions this way, always through forms etc. so quite possible I'm missing something :-)

    Cheers, Trin

    Function FindGID(IPD As Variant)
        Dim GIDdns As New ADODB.Connection
        Dim ipdnParam As New ADODB.Parameter
        Dim GIDrs As ADODB.Recordset
        Dim kommando As New ADODB.Command
        GIDdns =my dns info
        ipdnParam.Type = adInteger
        ipdnParam = IPD
        kommando.ActiveConnection = GIDdns
        kommando.CommandText = "ket.EXCEL_IPDfind"
        kommando.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
        kommando.Parameters.Append ipdnParam
        Set GIDrs = kommando.Execute
        FindGID = GIDrs!medlemsnummer
    End Function

    I believe functions need to be located in a separate 'Module' (not ThisWorkbook) for them to work in cells (don 't ask me why).
