Excel's IntelliSense

Excel's IntelliSense

Excel's IntelliSense

The IntelliSense is Excel works sometimes, and doesn't other times.

This works every time:

But when I type this, I get some help from Excel:

I keep typing, but then cells(1, 1). dosn't give me any hints after the period
when I want to have: Cells(1, 1).Value for example

The same when I want to use UsedRange of the ActiveSheet
So I type:
activesheet. - no help from IntelliSense
activesheet.usedrange. - no help from IntelliSense
activesheet.usedrange.rows - no help from IntelliSense

but then, at the end , I do get:
with all capitalized letters and it works OK

What am I missing... ponder

RE: Excel's IntelliSense

It seems that after Cells(...) intellisense stops at hidden _Default property of Range:

ActiveSheet can be other than Worksheet type, even after UsedRange VBE does not recognize context.
