# Cell Type Constants Returns Wrong Order

Nov 28, 2007

I'd like to add items on a UserForm1 ComboBoxes in the correct order but I can't. That's because with the code below, in ComboBox6P1 the items are added with mixed order:

For Each thing In .Range("AC6", .Range("AC65536").End(xlUp)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
If Trim(ComboBox4P1.Text) = thing.Value Then
If aNew.Row = thing.Row Then
End If
Next
Exit For
End If
Next

I should add items in ComboBox6P1 in order -> AD6, AE6, AF6, AG6, AH6, the rest are empty cells. Instead of it adds AF6, AG6, AH6, AD6, AE6. When I change .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants) to .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible ) it adds it in the correct order but with another 200 emtpy cells in the ComboBox6P1. The format of the cells is General.

## Function That Returns The Position (numberical Order) Of A Cell Within An Array

Is there a function that returns the position (numberical order) of a cell within an array?

## LOOKUP Returns Wrong Or Odd Value

Mar 27, 2007

I have a very basic spreadsheet to calculate golfer handicaps based upon a course index. For some reason, my "LOOKUP" formula is not retrieving the data from the cell (column) next to the value I am searching...?

## Formula Returns Wrong Value

Feb 27, 2010

The formula below was written a couple of years ago and I just discovered an error. It returns an "S" for the value 0789 when it should be a "C", (Consecutive).

IF(OR(AND(ISNUMBER(MATCH({0,1,2,9},\$O215:\$R215,0))),AND(ISNUMBER(MATCH(MIN(\$O215:\$R215)+{0,1,2,3},\$O215:\$R215,0)))),"C",IF(SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(\$O215:\$R215,\$O215:\$R215)=3,2,1))=2,"DD",INDEX({"S","D","T","Q"},MAX(FREQUENCY(\$O215

## Formula Returns Wrong Percentage?

Jun 27, 2013

=IF(AND(G9=0,H9=0),"",IF(AND(G9=0),1,H9-G9/G9))

this works great execot for the percentag is wrong when h9 and g9 are populated

## SUMIF - Value Used In Formula Is Of Wrong Data Type

Jul 27, 2012

I have a formula =SUM(IF(\$I\$4:\$I\$302="A",\$K\$4:\$K\$302)) works fine.

I am using the same formula referencing a different column =SUM(IF(\$W\$4:\$W\$302="A",\$Y\$4:\$Y\$302))

And I get the error : "A Value used in the formula is of the wrong data type"

## Wrong Data Type Supplied To UDF Error

Aug 31, 2007

My colleague and I are writing a udf which uses a "match/ index" combination to return a value to a cell from a named range in another sheet. The cell returns returns the error "value used in the formula is of the wrong data type". When we break down the code into a function which refers directly to the relevant cells, and a sub which returns the value in a message box, it works correctly: here's the code for the function and test sub:

Function MRL(PropertyType, ReturnType, Location, Year2) ....

## Grand Total Of The Calculated Field Returns Wrong Results

Apr 24, 2008

i have a problem regarding calculated field.. i have data of sales of a distributor with all the accounts that he handles.. i want to get the total number of buying accounts for that distributor..

buying account is an account that bought a specific product for at least one time... even the account buy 2 or 3 times more for that specific product the account is considered as 1 buying account..

i want to use a pivot table so i can manipulate the data.. first i tried to add an additional field to my data and put the formula
"if(norbo_val>0,1,0)" where norbo_val is the total sales less the rejects. it means if ever an account have positive sales the account is considered as a buying account for that specific product. my problem is that when that account bought the same product for 2 or more times it sums all the times an account bought for that specific product..

so i decide to remove the field in my data and create a calculated field in the pivot table. i input the same formula to the calculated field and it gives me the correct result where if ever an account bought a specific product for at least one time regardless on how many times the account bought that same product, the account is considered as 1 buying account. the only problem i am encountering now is that the grand total is not summing up the total numbers of buying accounts if i list all the accounts. it seems the formula is affecting the grand total where it should add the total of buying accounts but instead using the formula of the calculated field so the result is only 1.

## Wrong Data Type Error In Simple Array Formula

Jun 30, 2013

I am trying to use FIND and an array formula to find the position of text in a range of cells (A2 and A3 in the example) which could be one of a number of options (C1:D1 here). But the array formula throws up the following error: "A value used in the formula is of the wrong data type". The simplest illustration of the problem is as follows. The formula in B2 is

Code:
{=FIND((\$C\$1:\$D\$1),A2)}
and \$C\$1:\$D\$1 contain REF and ATM respectively. [/CODE]
REF
ATM
203047 05AUG 08.55 OKEHAMPTON ATM
#VALUE!
CO-OP GROUP 380611 REF 191 7553375222 BCC
22

We see that B2 has a #VALUE! error - wrong data type. But for some reason B3 is ok returning 22!

## AutoFilter Sort Of Numbers Wrong Order

Apr 3, 2008

I am using the autofilter function on a spreadsheet and the first column displays numerical data ranging from 1 to over 100. When I apply the 'Sort Ascending' from the autofilter on this column, it is attempting to display the data in alphabetical/numerical order however the order it is displaying appears such as this 1, 10 , 100, 101, 102, before moving on with data that starts with 2 (2, 20, 21, 22, 23 etc). Is there a way I can filter this column to display literal numerical data such as 1, 2, 3, 4 etc?

## Setting Range Returns Type Mismatch?

Jul 6, 2013

I have a bit of code that builds a formula and uses a variable store the range:

VB:
Sheets("CONTROL").Select
lastRow = Cells.Find(What:="*", After:=[A1], SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious).Row

[Code].....

## Lookup Function Returns Type Mismatch?

Feb 23, 2014

I get a Type mismatch from this line:

x = Application.WorksheetFunction.Lookup(2, 1 / (Range("G7:P7") = "A"), Range("G7:P7"))

## Macro To Split String Returns Type Mismatch

Aug 5, 2013

My code below returns a type mismatch? It is looking at the values in column B which are formatted as text and the output is in column J. An example of a value is 2.1.15 I want to extract 1 (i.e. the central character between two ".").

VB:
Sub ConvertLineNo()

Dim r As Long, TempStr As String
For r = Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -2
TempStr = Cells(r, "B")
TempStr = Split(TempStr, ".")
Cells(r, "J").Value = TempStr
Next
End Sub

## "wrong Data Type Error" Public Lookup Function

May 4, 2007

I have attached a file called Test2 which has a public function called DBLookup. The function looks in the attached access database simulating a Vlookup just like in Excel. The problem I am having is when that data appears on sheet1. I am getting #VALUE in the cell and the erroe states "a used value in the formula is of the wrong data type".

my

Dim strSQL As String

Const DatabasePath As String = "C:Test2.mdb"

'LookupValue - the value in LookupFieldName you're searching for
'ReturnField - the matching field containing the value you wish to return...

## Named Range Returns Wrong Range

May 16, 2014

OK, I have a huge SS with lots of named ranges. Many of which are dynamically assigned lists.

All of the existing ones work fine, but when try to add a new named range, it returns the cells from a previously named range. (Always the same old one.)

example:

A range (one of many) is named "Shift_List" and is defined using
=OFFSET(info!\$C\$3, 0, 0, COUNTA(info!\$C\$3:\$C\$2000),1)

New range is created named "PN_List" and is defines using
=OFFSET(info!AA\$3, 0, 0, COUNTA(info!AA\$3:AA\$2000),1)

When I create a Data Validation List or otherwise use "Shift_List" as the source it works fine.

However if I do the same thing and refer to "PN_List", it returns the items from "Shift_List"

Any new named range returns the Shift_List cells, although older ones still work correctly.

## VBA To Read Text Formula And Related Constants And Insert As Formula Into Cell

Jul 30, 2014

I have a situation where I have to curve fit data, this can lead to different formulas being used with varying constants.

Is it possible to pickup a TEXT based formula and related constants from other cells, and then place this into another cell as a functioning formula. For Example

Cell A1 contains the formula as a text string whether it be y=a+bx+cx^2, or y=a+b/x, etc
Cells A2:A6 contain the individual constants, a, b, c, etc

I would then want the VBA to read the text based formula and put it into an output cell as a functioning excel formulae.g

In cell B10: =a+b*A10+c*A10^2

I understand picking the constants up and putting the formula should not be too much of an issue, however trying to insert the variable form of the curve fit is the part that I am struggling with, and am unsure if possible.

## Code Is Populating A Cell With Wrong Value?

Jun 27, 2013

Code:
With wshfma
lr1 = 0
.Range("K2:N15").ClearContents 'early late staff rowsource
.Range("C2") = Format(hwmin1, "h:mmA/P") 'text!
With .Range("D2")
.Value = (.Range("C2"))
.NumberFormat = "general"
End With

Cell C2 of worksheet 'fma' is populated by a value linked from a textbox in a userform. It is a time value in text format (eg "8:30P").

This snippit of code is to populate cell D2 of worksheet 'FMA' with the value in C2 (8:30P), and apply the general number format to it. (I know redundant ... but this is just testing).

What is happening though, is cell D2 is actually being populated with the contents of another cell ... F3 to be exact.

## Formula Referencing Wrong Cell

Aug 16, 2006

This does almost exactlly what I want. The one problem that I have is that the active cell remains B1 as it enters the formula in the rest of column B. I need it to refer to the row that it is entering the formulas; meaning each formula entered in B2,3,4, etc. is still referencing cells A1 & D1 for sBook & a sFilePath.

Dim sBook As String
Dim sFilePath As String
Dim sLen As Long

Range("B1").Select
sBook = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1)
sFilePath = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2)
sLen = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row

Range("B1").Formula = "='" & sFilePath & "[" & sBook & ".xls]Sheet1'!R1C1"
Range("B1", Cells(sLen, 2)).Formula = Range("B1").Formula

## Hyperlinks From Userform Entering In The Wrong Cell?

Jun 24, 2013

I'm putting together a userform and all the values and ending up in the correct place except for the two hyperlink cells.

I think it is because I've got the anchor wrong but Im not sure how to correct. I'll put the whole form in so if there is something fundametal going wrong in the early stages I can be put right, but the hyperlink issues are down the bottom at the Offset 16 and 17.

VB:
' Write data to worksheet
RowCount = Worksheets("Resources").Range("A2").CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
With Worksheets("Resources").Range("A2")

## More Than 1 Cell As Search Range: Result Is Wrong

Apr 6, 2009

i've been using an IF function in order to display a certain value when one or more criteria are met in one cell in one specific worksheet. here's how it looks like:

=IF(OR(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("value1",Worksheet1!A1)),ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Value2",Worksheet1!A1))),"yes","no" )

with different values and names.. but it's just to give you the idea of what kind of function it is. this one works perfectly, but i also needed another one in which the logical test range is no longer only one cell, but more, thus a selection. i wrote the same formula, but instead of the "A1" i wrote for example "A1:A20" which i thought it would work.. but it doesn't. even more surprising, when i open the insert function (the helping wizard that pops up when i click the "fx" button on the left of the function string) and i put in the logical test, at the bottom of the window it says the correct result (ie: yes). but on the actual worksheet, the cell displays the wrong result (no). i know there are no errors in the formula, so i really don't know how to solve the problem.

## Constants As Arrays In Vba?

Apr 16, 2009

Can you declare a const as an array in VBA? For example, let's say I wanted to define an array of ORDINALS:

Const ORDINALS(0 to 9) = ("0th","1st","2nd","3rd","4th","5th","6th","7th","8th","9th")

## Select Constants

Aug 3, 2007

Can a macro be provided for selecting cells (including hidden) in the active sheet which are :

1. Totally consants ie not used in formula either in same sheet or other sheets

2. Constants ie figures used in formula in the same sheet and/or other sheets

## Using Constants In Same Module

Oct 15, 2009

I declared a constant like so:

Public Const iFirstRow As Integer = 6

I figured that any time I used this, at least in the same module, its value would be 6, but it was 0.

I changed it to ModuleName.iFirstRow, which seemed to set it straight.

Is this just how it is, or am I doing something wrong that is preventing me from using it without the module name?

## Constants Are (\$) Variables Are?

Apr 14, 2007

While \$ are constants for cells what is the symbol for variables? I guess when I dragged a formula down rows a certain number did not increase so I had to manually up each one as I went down the rows.

## Sum Formula With Constants

Jun 23, 2007

I have a Excel budget spreadsheet. I need a running formula I can copy and paste to other month cells.

SUM=Bal+interest+interest1-pmt

=SUM(B11+B4+C11-D11) Interest(B4), interest1(C11) and pmt(D11) are constants. The formula I am using works but it won't copy and paste.

## Convert Daily Returns Into Weekly Returns

## Detecting Formulas Vs. Constants

Oct 1, 2006

In my company we have many spreadsheets with sections that contain formulas, which may be overwritten with "hard coding", manually entered constants, in certain situations.

Is there a way I can detect the differences between the two types of cells? I would like to setup conditional formatting that would highlight constants in a table that would generally only contains formulas.

## Variables And Constants Query

Oct 13, 2006

how do you assign a value to the variable to make it available to the module?

I have tried the following without success

Option Explicit

Dim title As String

batch = Sheets("Day 1"). Range("D1")
folder = "M:CR dim checksRetention"
title = folder & batch
file = title & ".xls"
