"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".


Dim adoCN As ADODB.Connection

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

'Function argument descriptions

If you look at the attached xlsx file, you'll notice a drop down menu box (C5) which has two options 'wheat' and 'maize'. While the lookup function works fine for 'wheat' (i.e. it returns with the correct values from A33:A34, B33:B34 and C33:C34) it doesn't work for Maize. I've gone through the formula again and it beats me why it works fine for wheat, but using the same idea it doesn't seem to work for the maize option.

#NA Error In A Vlookup When Using SEARCH And LEFT As The Lookup Value

Feb 2, 2010

In the attached sheet I am trying to use the formula below but am getting a #NA error. I have narrowed the problem down to the use of the SEARCH and LEFT functions that I am using to determine the lookup value of the VLOOKUP formula.

what I am doing wrong? If I substitute the SEARCH and LEFT function with the number "14" it works just fine. You can find examples of both in cells B29 and C29 on the rename tab.

If lookup doesn't find a match in the first column, can I get it to return an

it returns the value in the second column of the closest value.

Lookup Referencing Closed File Returns Value Error

Aug 13, 2008

I have a file created in Excel 2003 that uses a vlookup to reference another file, also created in Excel 2003. The function returns VALUE when the referenced file is closed. I get the VALUE error whether or not I update links upon opening the file. If I open the source file, the function calculates properly.

Here is the formula when the referenced file is open:

=VLOOKUP(A38,'[June Scorecard confirmation.xls]VPSC Summary'!$C$10:$F$22,4,FALSE)

The full & correct path appears in the formula when the referenced file is closed.

Columns C, D & E in the referenced range contain text, column F contains a Sum. This file is linked to another file, also using lookups. The linked area in this file works without problem, but it is a precedent to the calculation in column F.

Both these files reside on a network in subdirectories of the same logical drive. I am using a laptop that briefly had Excel 2007 installed on it, but was wiped clean before it was issued to me.

Error Checking Routine - Check Range Values On Various Worksheets And Report If Error

May 29, 2014

Error Check Marco.xlsm

see attached example. I am trying to write an error detection routine that iterates through worksheets that have numeric values for names (ignore text names or alphanumeric). Macro checks range on each numeric worksheet E3:E33 and is supposed to report back on the SummarySheet if any value other than 1 or 0 is found in range E3:E33 on any numeric-name worksheet. Code as follows:

[Code] ....

Problem is that it just reports EVERY worksheet as having an error when clearly most don't (none do I think in the attached example).

Try changing some of ranges E3:E33 to values other than 1 or 0, it still reports all sheets. Why the macro does not evaluate the range E3:E33 properly and just reports every worksheet as having an error?

Two Cells Which Have Formulas Stopping Error Messages Show An Error When Added

Nov 9, 2009

See the attached sheet. I am trying to add together two figs which are linked to calculations which have formula built in to stop error messages when there is a 0 / 0 = #value type error. However when these two cells are added, if the cells are blank I get an error message. And if only one cell has a value, I get "" with my existing formula. what I need to do to get a result of 7 if for example cell A4 = "" + B4 =7. At the moment my formula shows "" in the sum total of these cells

Boolean Type Mismatch Error - On Error Resume Next Doesn't Work?

Apr 1, 2013

OK, so I have a userform with some text boxes that I have specially formatted to accept only date values in the form of mm/dd/yy. By default they are blank. I have a check in one of my codes that looks like this

If DateBox vbNullString And DateValue(DateBox) > checkdate Then
M1 = "NEOPRENE" & Chr(13)
M1 = "" & Chr(13)
End If

Where DateBox is this specially formatted TextBox and checkdate is a future date being checked against.So if DateBox has a value in it AND that value is greater than the date being checked against the returend string is Neoprene, otherwise it is blank.

Well the problem I have is when the first condition returns FALSE, i.e. when DateBox is empty, the DateValue half still gets evaluated and returns a type missmatch error or something like that because DateValue("") returns an error. I have line of code 8 times, one for Neoprene, squeegee, etc. So the name of the text boxes are each unique and I am using M1, M2, M3, etc.

For other reasons, use of "On Error Resume Next" doesn't work for this situation because it causes a result opposite to what I want to happen.

Looped Error Check Not Working: Error 1004 Is Generated When A Match Cannot Be Found In The Spreadsheet

Jul 2, 2006

the if stattement works perfectly and does exactly what i want except when it comes to the else part. if there is no error the statements are run perfectly but if there is an error (in this case the error is generated when a match cannot be found in the spreadsheet) the else statement doesnt kick in and post the msgbox.
the code just crashes. and returns an error 1004 on the line i have highlighted in yellow

res = WorksheetFunction.Match(invvar, Columns(1), 0)
If Not IsError(res) Then

Me.txtClientID.Value = ws13. Cells(res, 7)
Me.txtNumber.Value = ws13.Cells(res, 7)

Index / Match Lookup With Two Columns - Runtime Type 13 Error

Feb 14, 2014

I am building a timeclock, and am using a user form to allow people to sign in/out.

I have a punch in form that logs the inputed username and password (after being checked against my employee list), along with a count of their username on this sheet (as a count of how many times they have punched in) and a timestamp (column 4). These values are all pasted to the first blank row in my worksheet "PunchInTimes".

Then, I have a punch out button that logs these same values the same way, only on "PunchOutTimes". Then, the idea is to link the index number of the PunchOutTimes record and PunchInTimes record for any given user, so that when they punch out, a complete record is pasted (to the first blank row) in a separate worksheet called "Timesheets".

I have been able to paste the username and count to the "Timesheets" sheet, however as soon as I try to index/match the count and inputed username (on the punch out form), I get an error 13 type mismatch.

I'm trying to paste the corresponding punch in time to this punch out time, so ive used an index/match with two columns (username and count) found in "PunchInTimes", and try to return the corresponding 4th column value (punch in time). After pasting the "punch out only" values to the PunchOutTimes, i used a "With/End With" statement, and set wsc equal to my 'timesheets' worksheet at the beginning of my code. So the line where I get my error is below in bold:

[Code] ......

Vba Macro Error: Compile Error Named Argument Not Found

Apr 26, 2006

I have some code that, although works fine in Excel 2003, does not in Excel 1997. I receive this error when I try running it:


Dim r As Range, myStr As String
myStr = "HP"
Set r = Cells. Find(What:=myStr, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
False, SearchFormat:=False)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
r = r.Value
While Not r Is Nothing
Set r = Cells.FindNext(r)
If Not r Is Nothing Then
r = r.Value
End If
End If
End Sub

It looks like Excel is getting hung up on the "SearchFormat:=" portion of the code.

Error In Function Which Appear To Be Correct???

Jun 1, 2009

it returns an error when I try to enter it. Is there a brave soul which a good eye for errors that might be able to shine some light on the error. Currently it appears the error centers around the MONTH( ) portions of the function. But each embedded function is able to stand alone and I can't imagine why they won't work together.

Worksheet Function Error

Jan 30, 2007

I am having problems getting the code right for the WorksheetFunction. I have put a snip of the procedure below.

I have data that is sequentially entered into columns, always in rows 4 to 18 with the column ref increasing by 1 each time new data is entered.

After each instance of data entry into a new column I need to loop through that data and, if the a cell value matches a value in range A1:A200, to place x in column B in the same row as the match in column A. All in Sheet2.

Set cStartcell = Sheet2.Range("IV4").End(xlToLeft) ' goes to last entered column
For Each cell In Sheet2.Range("B2:B200")
Application.WorksheetFunction.If(Match(Offset.(0, -1), Sheet2.Range.("cStartCell:cStartCell.Offset(15, 0)"),""x"")

I have put the problem in bold. whatever I try seems to come up as 'end of statement expected' or 'identifier or bracketed expression expected' errors. When I have managed to get rid of errors the fromula does nothing.
