2. Debug Print a Complete Code in the Immediate Window in Excel VBA
Now we’ve learned to open the Immediate window. Let’s see how can debug print the output of a complete VBA code in the window.
Let’s have a VBA code that takes two integers as variables A and B, and returns their sum in variable C.
Sub Debug_Print() A = 10 B = 15 C = A + B End Sub
Now to print the value of C in the Immediate window, you have to insert this line.
Now, if you run the code, you’ll find the value of C (10+15 = 25) in the Immediate window.

3. Debug Print a Line of Code in the Immediate Window in VBA
In the previous example, we saw how we can print the output of a code in the Immediate window by the debug.print command.
But you can directly write a line of code in the Immediate window and run it. For example, here I’ve written this line of code in the Immediate window.
Debug.Print "This is Immediate Window."
Now press ENTER on your keyboard. The line will be executed and you’ll find the output in the next line of the window.
4. Debug Print in Break Mode in the Immediate Window in Excel VBA
You can also debug print the value of a particular code in the Immediate window. But to do that, you have to go to the break mode of VBA.
For example, in the following figure, the code is in the break mode from in the line:
C = A + B
Break mode means, while running the code, that particular line won’t be executed.
Now, we can debug print the value of any variable in the Immediate window.
For example, to print the value of the variable B, insert this line of code in the Immediate window:
Click ENTER. And you’ll find out the value of B displayed. That’s 15.
