Reference Error Cells Without Error Being Returned

Oct 17, 2006

I have a VB function in a worksheet that requires data from a workbook that is not under my control. The problem is that the workbook does not always have complete data. Often cells are filled with #VALUE, when this occurs I need a way to tell my VBA to assume a value of 0. I have tried using if(cell="#VALUE", 0,cell) but to no avail. any suggestions?

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

Run-time Error '91' When 'On Error Goto' And Cells.find

Oct 8, 2008

I have written a Excel (2003) that searches a worksheet for a string in any cell. If the string is not found, it uses the 'On Error GoTo' command to jump to a given label. It works fine on the first string not found. When it searches for the next non-existent string, it fails with:

'Run-time error '91':
Object variable or With block variable not set'

Do I have to clear a buffer after each cells.find search?

Bypassing Reference Error

Jun 2, 2014

I am creating a worksheet that needs to input information from other worksheets that have not been created yet. I will be using this to input information as time goes on (monthly); however when trying to create the cell, I get a message that says "a formula in this worksheet involves one or more invalid references. Verify that your formula contains a valid path, workbook, range name, and cell reference." The worksheets I am trying to reference will be created eventually, but I want a formula that will not have to be updated monthly and I can just use it to roll over month to month.

My current formula looks as such:
=IF((IF($A$2=1, '[2014 Corp Engineering Project Codes.xls]Period 1'!$A13, 0))
(IF($A$2=2, '[2014 Corp Engineering Project Codes.xls]Period 2'!$A13, 0))
(IF($A$2=3, '[2014 Corp Engineering Project Codes.xls]Period 3'!$A13, 0))

[Code] ........

I have up to 'Period 6' created so far, the error highlights 'Period 7'.

Loop Until Reference = Error

Mar 26, 2007

I'm trying to create a simply loop for an easy task of copying and then pasting a formula into other cells. Basically I'm trying to get this script to run until there is no more "slsperson" references to go to.

Sub z_Paste_Sales_Formula()
Dim i As Long
Dim icolumn As Integer
icolumn = 4
Cells(3, icolumn).Select
i = 1
Application.Goto Reference:="slsperson" & i
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
sls_row = ActiveCell.Row
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
gp_row = ActiveCell.Row
Cells(sls_row, icolumn).Select
Number = i + 1
Loop Until Application.Goto Reference:="slsperson" & number = error
End Sub

Cicrular Reference Error

Jan 13, 2008

I have aproblem when I try to reference another sheet in a formula. I had it in my 2003 version, upgraded to 2007, and it is still there.

I want to make a reference to cells in another sheet - using them to multiply with a number in the sheet I am working on ....

I write "=(Sheet)(cellreference)" [just to see if the number actually ends in the sheet I am working on]
- Sheet by going to the sheet and marking the cell and then press return.

When I do this Excel responds with erronous behaviour and at least does not go back to the initial sheet and provide me with the number from the referenced Sheet/Cell. Some times I receive an error message about circular reference problems ....

Circular Reference Error Message

Mar 2, 2014

This formula might be the problem for the error message.


I have other cells with the same formula (but with different range i.e. D3:CP3), yet it doesn't have circular reference error message.

Error Message: "You May Have Set A Reference To

May 15, 2007

I get a weird message every time I open Excel.

Error Number = 91

Error Discrp = Object variable or With block variable not set

You may have to manually set a reference to the ]VBIDE = VBE6EXT.OLB]

Not sure what this means or how it happened, but I know nothing about Code.

--> I am curious if maybe it has something to do with another weird instance I've had on all my Microsoft apps lately: Usually I can highlight text and press backspace to delete - or just type over the highlighted text to delete it. Now, when I highlight and press delete, nothing happens. If I highlight and try to typeover the highlighted text, it just adds my new text in front of the highlighted. --- Doubtful that both are related other than they are both really annoying every day.

The Sort Reference Is Not Valid - Run Time Error

Oct 13, 2008

I used the vba recorder to get the code and didn't change one thing, and now I am getting an error when i click on the command button to execute the code.


Run time error 1004
The sort reference is not valid. Make sure that it's within the data you want to sort, and the first Sort By Box isn't the same or blank.

Row 1 = column headings

row 2 is the first set of data, *****, however, most of the data in the column is blank. There are only 2 options, (Yes) or blank, and I am trying to sort the sheet so all the (Yes) appear at the top

when i did the macro recorder, it seemed to work.

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.

Error On Button Code Reference To A Subroutine

Mar 2, 2007

I'm having trouble calling a subroutine from a command button. It's puzzling because I've set up buttons before and didn't have this trouble.

Here is my button
Private Sub EPConversionButton1_Click(ByVal target As Range)
Convert_Hrs_EP target
End Sub
And here is the subroutine.

Sub Convert_Hrs_EP(target As Range)
End Sub
There's nothing there yet, but I keep getting error messages regarding the transfer from the button code to the subroutine.

The message is: Procedure declaration does not match description of event or procedure having the same name. The Help file says this means that my procedure has the same name as an event, but does not have the same signature. But it's not so.

Countif Error With Absolute Range Reference

Mar 24, 2007

I've been testing the countif function and for some reason it isn't working for me.

I have the following text in cells A1:A3

I have the following text in cells C1:C3

I put the following formula in B1 and copied down into B2 and B3.

It is meant to count how many of each fruit in A1:A3 is also in C1:C3.
The banana is the only one that is in both lists so the formula in B2 should return 1.

But all three formula's return zero.

If I change the range in the countif formula to relative it works. eg., =COUNTIF(C1:C3,A1)

Reference In Adjacent Column Returned

Mar 4, 2006

I have two columns with multiple sets of data, based on the entered value I
need the corresponding header returned.

For example:
Column A Column B
Apples Green
Granny Smith
Red Delicious

Oranges Naval

Now based on a response in another sheet I need to return either "Apple" or

=INDEX('Fruit'!A1:A65535,MATCH(K50,'Fruit'!B:B65535,0)) will work if I copy

Apple next to each apple type, but for other items the list of options can
grow dramatically.

File With Multiple Charts Always Gives ONE Invalid Reference Error Until Pressing F9

May 22, 2012

I have a file with data in one sheet (unfortunately I cannot share the file because of confidential data..), and two sheets with both 9-11 charts in them.

The charts are all filled simply with a dynamic range from the datasheet, so that Last Year and all months from this year with data in them are always in there.

The problem: When opening either of the graph sheets, the (familiar?) error pops up: "A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references. Verify that your formulas contain a valid path, workbook, range name and cell reference."

One of the graphs has an error and only shows one point of data in it. But only until I press F9, and then the chart is repaired and functions perfectly like all the others!

I have tried lots of things, including checking all source ranges, deleting all graph names etc. and then repaired it so it would work again. The only thing that happened, is that the same error now pops up for another graph in the sheet. Still, when you press F9, the graph functions again!

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?

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.

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.
