If Else Syntax: Change Some Outputs Of The Macro Without Changing The Syntax

Jul 19, 2006

I´m writting a macro. It works find until a certain point. When I want to change some outputs of the macro without changing the syntax, it display an error mesage while runing the macro. It says Else without If. Which is quite disturbing because the Else was not creating any problem before. Here is my macro before I changed the conditions (this one work nicely)

Sub Copy_Sheet_Beta()
Set wba = ActiveWorkbook
On Error Resume Next
If IsWorkbookOpened("Projekt.xls", "C:Documents and SettingsfrederikSkrivebordRedd Barna") Then
Workbooks("Projekt.xls").Activate 'In case open, just activate "Projekt"
Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:Documents and SettingsfrederikSkrivebordRedd Barnaprojekt.xls"
End If
Set wb = Workbooks("Projekt.xls")
If Not SheetExists(wba.ActiveSheet. Range("C1").Value) Then
MsgBox "overall doesn't exist!"

Syntax For Inserting Formula Into A Cell

Nov 27, 2009

I have this code for setting up a sheet to begin a calculation involving the solver add in. I am getting a "Run Time Error 13: Type Mismatch" on the line that inserts a formula into the cell. I have put the first offending line in bold in the code below. Is this a problem with syntax or is there something else that I have made a mistake on?

Syntax For Using Variables Within VBA Formula Functions?

Dec 3, 2003

correctly using variables within functions used in formulas specified by VBA. Here's an example:

I want to place a formula within a workbook file called "Books 2003.xls" that goes to the version of the file for the previous year (or whatever year is specified) and does a Sum of a particular range (where that range is also specified as a variable) so it sums up the Total for the previous year for the same number of months that have data in them to date for the current year. Once VBA places the formula where it belongs, it should be able to always provide a running comparisson with the current year to date total and the totals for the same period for the previous year. Here's an example of the intent of this simple formula:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM('[Books 2002.xls]Income Summary'!R4C2:R8C2)"

The workbook files will all be named the same way: Books 2002.xls, Books 2003.xls etc.... The range to be summed will always start at R4C2, but could then end anywhere from R4C2 (same as B4) up to R15C2 (same as B15).

I already have a routine that captures the value for the variable CurrentYear in the form "2003" and thus have another variable for PrevYear (= CurrentYear -1), and so then have a way to correctly specify the variable "BookName" to get the correct filename needed. I also have a variable for the CurrentMonth in the form of "1 through 12", and can use that to specifiy the correct RowNum needed to determine the end of the range (RowNum = CurrentMonth + 3).

I've tried to substitute the variables "BookName" and "RowNum" into the above formula with various combinations such as what follows, but I'm not getting the correct syntax with the right number of quotes etc...:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = ""=SUM('[" & BookName & "]Income Summary'!R4C2:R" & RowNum & "C2)""

This doesn't work, and I'd love to learn the correct rules for syntax when inserting variables into situations like this.

Option Explicit

Sub Reformat()
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim iRow As Long

For Each wks In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets

Finding Right Syntax For Concatenating A Space In If / Then Formula

Apr 16, 2012

Below is the "real formula"

=IF(SUM($F$4-$E$4)= 0," ",SUM($F$4-$E$4)) 'If the value is 0 then enter a space in the cell.

And below is the VBA formula

"=if(sum(" & LastRowCell & "-" & FirstRowCell & ")= 0," & " " & ",sum(" & LastRowCell & "-" & FirstRowCell & "))"

The real formula works, but I am having having difficulties with the syntax of the VBA formula. The above VBA formula works to, but enters a 0 in the cell instead of a space.

IF / AND Formula Syntax - Display Valid Or Invalid

Sep 25, 2012

I have two columns with values, and want to display "Valid" or "Invalid" in a third column, dependant on the two preceeding values.

If both column 1 and column 2 contain #N/A, then I want the third column to display "Invalid".

If the above is not true, then I want the third column to display "Valid".

I've been trying different syntax with IF/AND but cannot achieve the result.

Syntax Error In VBA Relative Reference Formula

Jan 7, 2014

I was able to get VBA to post this relative reference, which sticks the formula

=DATE(YEAR($D2),MONTH($D2)+6, DAY($D2)+1) into a cell in Col J.

All fine and dandy, works as it should with this formula.

.Cells(Row, "J").FormulaR1C1 = "=DATE(YEAR(RC4),MONTH(RC4)+6, DAY(RC4)+1)"

However, when I try this with a different formula =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(C2,H2)),"REPEAT","SAFE"), I'm getting a compile error: Expected end of statement with this code:

.Cells(Row, "I").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(RC3,RC8)),"REPEAT","SAFE")"

The error message highlights the word REPEAT. I suppose it's something with all the quotes throwing off where compiler thinks the end of the formula should be.

Correct Syntax To Add Workbook Name That Is Stored In Variable Into Formula?

Feb 24, 2014

I have the following code, which executes just fine:


The problem is that I need to run this again in a different column, and the data is held in another sheet that I have given the variable StepTwo to.

I'm not sure of the syntax to do this. Basically - this is what I need the code to do:

[Code] ....

Understandably this is totally incorrect, but it's the best I can do to explain what I'm actually trying to do....

The two parts of SUMIF are both held in a workbook that I've given the variable "StepTwo" to. Both sets of data are also held on Sheet(1) of that workbook.

Excel 2007 :: Syntax For Referencing Worksheet In A Formula

Apr 19, 2012

I am using Excel 2007 in Windows XP. I am trying to change the worksheet referenced in a formula from the label of the worksheet to the index of the sheet. I want to use this macro in multiple workbooks, and the relevant sheets have different names but are all in the same position.

I used "record macro" to get the structure of my code. It gave me the line:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM('8Nov11'!R[13]C[-4]:R[108]C[-4])"

I want to change that '8Nov11' to the 3rd worksheet from the left, so something like:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(ThisWorkbook.Sheets(3)!R[13]C[-4]:R[108]C[-4])"

I can't get this to work, and I can't find the syntax for this anywhere. I've tried with and without quotes, exclamation points, changing to A1 notation and using "Range," "Sheets," "Worksheets," "Item(3)", and many other combinations, but haven't gotten it right.

Most of the errors I get are "Runtime Error 1004: Application-defined or object-defined error."

Conditional Formula Syntax Shows Hash Signs

Jul 1, 2007

I trying to write a conditional formula to test data in a cell to see where it falls between certain values, and depending on the data in the cell, will display a message in another cell showing what level has been attained. It's a long formula and I may not have the syntax correct. Can someone look at this and tell me where I have went wrong? All I get in the target cell is "################".

Here is the formula:

Try this formula. Array formulas will have curly brackets {} emcompassing the ENTIRE formula. You do not add these, you Enter the formula with Ctrl+Shift+Enter and Excel will add them (details: Array formulas). Many more Excel Formulas
  =IF(c13<1600,"Not at prize level yet",IF(AND(c13>=1600,c13<=1999.99),"You have reached level 1",IF(AND(c13>1999.99,c13<=2499.99),"You have reached level 2",IF(AND(c13>2499.99,c13<=2999.99),You have reached level 3,IF(AND(c13>3000,c13<=3499.99),"You have reached level level 4",IF(c13>3500,"You have reached the top level!!"))))))

3-D Formula Syntax: Consolidate Certains Cells In 30 Identical Worksheets In A Workbook

Jun 7, 2006

I want to consolidate certains cells in 30 identical worksheets in a workbook. I understood that if I use the 3-D formula method, that I could insert new identical worksheets into the range of worksheets and the consolidated totals would update. Is that correct?

I cannot seem to get the syntax to work. When I read the Excel Help file it gives an example of =sum(sheet2:sheet7!B3) but I don't understand how Excel could answer this ( if the worksheets were named Sheet2,sheet3,sheet4 etc up to sheet7)
In my example, the formula is clearly wrong. Why does it not use the single quotation marks '? I cannot find references to the proper syntax anywhere. I have your training program but this does not spell it out for me either. If I use Data>Consolidate then I have to labouriously do this for each cell that I want to consolidate.

Formula Syntax In VBA "For-loop"

Jan 7, 2010

I have built a summary page in a multi-sheet workbook, this summary page extracts data from each respective sheet and enters it into successive rows. Each row contains data variables that are mined from each spreadsheet, there are multiple columns and multiple rows (one row per spreadsheet).

I've used a sort of 'header' format for each individual spreadsheet (account sheet) in which I use complicated formulas to data mine standard data sets below the header.
I've done this because I discovered I do not understand how to use this for-loop to run an active formula in each sheet and then output the unique result, THEN continue on to mine the next sheet. I have however successfully been able to grab a data value from a complicated formula and copy paste special values.

I use a For-Loop which creates the summary rows in a different sheet called 'Market'.
My problem is that I would like to actually use a formula in my For-Loop and not just reference a static value from the referenced sheet. The simplified code is below, with my error highlighted in red.

VBA With If Statement Syntax

Jan 21, 2009

I have the following code that loops thru and puts the word 'TEST' in column J if column B has a TEXT value of '020'

With Range("J1:J" & Lastrow)
Range(.Cells(2), .Cells(.Count)).Formula = "=if((b2)=""020"",""TEST"","""")"
End With

1) why do I need double quotes "" "" on every argument in the function? Is it because I'm working with TEXT data?
2)I want to use multiple ifs (ie if cell b2 equals '020' OR '030' then put the word 'TEST' in col J). How to change the syntax to do this?

Vba Sql Syntax 2003

May 23, 2007

In VBA Excel 2000 while ODBC connecting to a dbase file:

parameter=" N0011"
ActiveSheet.QueryTables.CommandText = Array( _ ...
"SELECT ... & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & _
"FROM ... & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & _
"WHERE (dbase_file.field1=" & chr(34) + parameter + chr(34) & "... & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & _
"ORDER BY ...")

It doesn't work any more in Excel 2003. Of course it works directly such as:
"WHERE (dbase_file.field1=' N0011')
but I couldn't find the way to replace the ' N0011' with the parameter.

It is not the singular issue...
"FROM dbase.file dbase.file " that worked well in Excel 2000, the Excel 2003 "wants":
"FROM 'drivepath'dbase_file dbase_file "
and I couldn' find a way to replace the explicit 'drivepath' with a predefined variable.
