# If(iserror Formula): Used A Variant Of This Formula Before Without Encountering

Feb 27, 2009

I'm going wrong with this formula: =if(iserror(J3-VLOOKUP (H3,\$H\$730:\$J\$1456,3,FALSE)," "(J3-VLOOKUP(H3,\$H\$730:\$J\$1456,3,FALSE)). I feel like I've used a variant of this formula before without encountering any problems.

## Encountering Error When Modifying A Formula

Jun 2, 2014

Below is a formula that I am attempting to modify:

From this:
=IFERROR(IF(A8<MIN(A\$8:A\$30)+365*5+1,(IF(AND(A8>=\$E\$4,A8<=\$E\$5),1,0)*B8*(MAX(C8,D8)/365)+B8),(IF(AND(A8>=\$E\$4,A8<=\$E\$5),1,0)*B8*(D8/365)+B8)),"")

To this:
=IFERROR(IF(A8<MIN(A\$8:A\$30)+365*5+1,B8*(MAX(C8,D8)/365)+B8),B8*(D8/365)+B8)),"")

But it is giving me an error result.

## Vba To Wrap If(iserror) Around Formula

Sep 20, 2006

I would like some code that would wrap if(iserror) around a formula, so that if the result is an error then no text is shown. It would be good if I could select a range and the formula would be adjusted for all cells with formula in. (Would be even better if cells with references in could have if(isblank) instead!) I am currently spending ages adjusting all my formulas manually and haven't got time to try and work out how to do this with vba.(I'm not very experienced with it!)

e.g. =INDEX('Characs Single'!\$B\$1:\$C\$100,MATCH('1Report'!\$B12,'Characs Single'!\$B\$1:\$B\$19,0),2)

would be come

=IF(ISERROR(INDEX('Characs Single'!\$B\$1:\$C\$100,MATCH('1Report'!\$B12,'Characs Single'!\$B\$1:\$B\$19,0),2)),"",INDEX('Characs Single'!\$B\$1:\$C\$100,MATCH('1Report'!\$B12,'Characs Single'!\$B\$1:\$B\$19,0),2))

## Iserror Formula Still Returning Div#0

Apr 11, 2007

why is this formula

=IF(ISERROR(AVERAGE(H14:H16),"",(AVERAGE(H14:H16)

returning DIV#!0 if there is no data in the target cells, I thought the ISERROR was meant to stop that?

## MMULT & ISERROR In Array Formula

Dec 31, 2006

I am trying to use an ISERROR function in an array formula, but it doesn't seem to be working. The formula I am using is as follows: ={IF(ISERROR(MMULT(Covar1,MMULT(MINVERSE(BC111:CX158),E161:E208))),0,MMULT(Covar1,MMULT(MINVERSE(BC111:CX158),E161:E208)))}

## Nested IF, ISERROR, VLOOKUP Formula Simplification

Feb 12, 2009

I have filled the following formula in many cells of a spreadsheet.

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(D75,'Sheet1'!\$D\$3:\$D\$5442,1,FALSE)),0,IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C75,'Sheet1'!\$C\$3:\$C\$54 42,1,FALSE)),0,IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!\$A\$3:\$I\$5442,9,FALSE)),VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&G75,'Sheet1'!\$B\$3:\$I\$5442,9,FALSE),VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!\$A\$3:\$I\$5442,9,FALSE))))

I am wondering if I have nested too many functions for this to work properly. In the case where one of the first two if statements are true (an error would be produced), I am receiving a "0" as specified. However, in the case where the statement VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&D75,'Sheet1'!\$A\$3:\$I\$5442,9,FALSE) results in an error then I should have the return of VLOOKUP(C75&" - "&G75,'Sheet1'!\$B\$3:\$I\$5442,9,FALSE), but am getting a #REF! error instead.

## Using IF(OR And IF(ISERROR In Same Formula: Return A Blank Cell

Jul 8, 2009

I am trying to fix the below formula =IF(OR(ISERROR((F26-E26)/F26),((F26-E26)/F26)=1),"",(F26-E26)/F26). If I get an error from the formula I want it to return a blank cell. If I get 1 as the answer to the formula I'd like it to return a blank cell. This formula only works if the result is 1 but won't return a blank cell if the answer is an error.

## ISERROR Formula In Cell That Has Multiple Vlookups?

Apr 18, 2008

My problem is when i get a product that isnt in the reference sheets (ie. in cell I19), so when that happens i get "#N/A". I know i can add in ISERROR into my formula, but every time i've tried this it hasn't worked so im missing something...

## Code To Add Nested IF & ISERROR Formula To Cell

Jun 26, 2008

Application. ScreenUpdating = False

For FormulaRemake = 2 To 2000
Worksheets("Data"). Range("D" & FormulaRemake).Formula = ""=If(ISERROR(Data!W"" & FormulaRemake - 1 & "")"" & ""=True,"",Data!W"" & FormulaRemake - 1 & "")""
Next
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

I'm having troubles with the syntax for the .Formula part. I read that when you do this you're supposed to double quote everything, except if you need a "" in it...?
Should look like this when done right: =IF(ISERROR(Data!W1)=TRUE,"",Data!W1) Also is there anything besides ScreenUpdating that will make this code run faster?

## Use "ISERROR" In A Subtotal Formula?

Sep 17, 2009

I have a table that calculates both grand totals and sub-totals, with one cell always showing the grand totals, and one cell that would show different sub-totals based on which filters are applied.

I am using the following formula to find the grand total:
{=SUM(IF(ISERROR(DL14:DL1541)," ",DL14:DL1541))}

I am attempting to use this (non-working) formula for the sub-total:
=SUBTOTAL(9,DL14:DL1541)

The problem is that I have a lot of cells with "#N/A" in them, and can't figure out how to get the sub-total formula to work. I've tried rewriting the sub-total formula in several different ways, but can't get it to work.

## Looping Macro Freezes Excel When Encountering Large Numbers Of Rows

Sep 15, 2009

We are attempting to use the macro below.

We believe that the problem is "memory related."

However, we can't find the correct workaround to the issue.

In Excel 2002, the behavior was for the macro to work great on small numbers of rows, but to just stop on large numbers of rows. After it stopped, the user would manually run the macro throughout the spreadsheet, by holding down Ctrl + N.

In Excel 2007, the behavior of the program is different, and Excel actually freezes up.

We've narrowed down the problem to be possibly "memory related."

However, we don't know the correct workaround for this.

For example, in the posting below (the referenced link) they suggest using "variant arrays" to address memory limitations type of issues ... but I'm not sure of how to implement those.

## Set File Extention As Variant

Jul 1, 2009

I have a button the runs Application.GetOpenFilename And puts the output filepath into a label. I then have another button that opens a inputbox asking to change the file name and then copys the file from above path to my destenation.

when setting the destination i use ThisWorkbook.Path & Application.PathSeparator & "Images" & Application.PathSeparator and the imputbox value as the filename. doing it like this it wont alocate a extention for the file ".jpg,ect". The label.caption has the .ext and i would like to be able to store everythink after the . as a variant.

## Errors In Using Variant Variable

May 7, 2006

I experienced error "object required" when I tried to pass a argument of type variant into the b/m function call.

Call closeCon(con) 'con is of type Variant

The function is as follows.

End Sub

## Converting A Variant Into A String

May 17, 2006

Is there any way in VBA to convert a Variant into a String? This code doesn't seem to be valid:

Dim vName As Variant
Dim sName As String

vName = "John"
sName = CStr(vName)

May 31, 2007

Is/how possible to read entire ss into a variant "off-scree" without showing the user? I can open the file, I just dont know how to not show the file, select the entire sheet and read the values. I have seen the below but dont know how modify it as needed. Also is there a way to do this dynamically with variable length rows/columns?

Dim lRow Long
Dim lCol As Long

## Assigning A Variant Variable To An Integer

Jun 2, 2009

I am assigning the result of a vlookup to a variable that is defined as Variant. I then need to use that variable in a calculation.

## How Many Elements Are Not Empty Within Variant Array

Jul 19, 2014

I want to test how many elements are not empty within a variant array.

For example for arrays Arr1 and Arr2 below the answers would be:
- for Arr1 not empty elements=1
- for Arr2 not empty elements=0

Arr1(0)=empty
Arr1(1)=2
Arr1(2)=empty

Arr2(0)=empty
Arr2(1)=empty
Arr2(2)=empty

I've tried with function COUNTA inside VBA but counts even the empty values:

Code:
NotEmptyCells = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(Arr1)

Is there another function to count this from an array or alternative way?

## Why Doesn't My Variant Array Work

Jun 26, 2008

The answer is probably "because I'm stupid", but I really can't get my head around it! I'm playing with variant arrays for the first (and possibly last) time,

The code I have is:

Sub test()
Dim vSheetColours As Variant
Dim iCounter As Integer
vSheetColours = Range("Colours").Interior.ColorIndex
For iCounter = 1 To UBound(vSheetColours, 1)
MsgBox vSheetColours(iCounter, 1)
Next iCounter
End Sub

(Obviously this code doesn't do anything useful - but if I could get it to work, I might have a chance of making my real code work!)

Colours is a range of 8 cells. Each one has some text in, and has a different background colour. I'm trying to store the colours.

If I run this code, I get a runtime error 13 type mismatch, and it highlights
For iCounter = 1 To UBound(vSheetColours, 1)

But if I replace
vSheetColours = Range("Colours").Interior.ColorIndex
with
vSheetColours = Range("Colours").Value

it works fine.

## Variant Variable From List Box To A String

Jul 5, 2006

I have a multiple select list box which I capture the selected items by using ListBox1. List

I want to use the 'selection' to build up a string that will form a document name I want to add to an email as an attachment (all being done from Excel), however I get a type mis-match error as the ListBox1.List output is a variant.

So I'm aiming to have something like MyFile = firstpartoffilename & ListBox1.List & "*.doc"

Do I need to somehow convert the variant variable or are there some other clever tricks I can use to create my document name.

## Advance Variant Array Without Loop

Jul 13, 2006

Is it possible to use an array without looping through it? I have code that has two loops: One that is just for the array and the other that loops through the data. It would be nice if I could get it down to one loop, but I'm not sure if it's possible. For example, if you have
Dim varArea As Variant

varArea = Array(1,2,4,6,8,12)

For x = LBound(varArea) To UBound(VarArea)
Do While Not C Is Nothing
Code here
Is there a way to advance to the next item in the array without using the loop.

## Convert Variant To Typed Array

May 23, 2007

I am using strongly typed code, but I am also pulling data from worksheets into variants. e.g.

Dim MyArray As Variant

MyArray = [MyNamedRange]

is there any shortcut to convert the variant to a typed array, which doesn't just involve looping throught the variant and using a casting function, e.g.

Dim MyArray As Variant
Dim typedArray() As type

MyArray = [MyNamedRange]
typedArray = shortcut(MyArray)

## Maximum Length Of Variant Or String

Aug 10, 2007

I have looked into the maximum length of a variant/string in vba and it appears to be 250 characters. I am running a macro which first lists all excel files in a folder, returning them to a sheet, then using a loop statement opens each one in turn extracting the information to a second summary sheet before closing it. The file path to the folder is ridiculously long and the macro stumbles. I used the =LEN(A1) formula to check if the file names were too long for the string, but the maximum file name length was 226 characters. I've tried both String and Variant to collect the file names but both have the same effect.

## Variant Array Of Arrays Of Differing Size

Jan 24, 2013

I am trying to develop some code to serve as an 'undo' for several macros that I have. They each take a selected range and perform some changes to that range. I have managed to make some code that will undo the last macro run but would like to make something that can go back several steps. To that end, I have started with the following code but am running into an issue when I need to use a variant array to hold multiple arrays of a custom defined data type:

VB:
Type SaveRange
Val As Variant

[Code] .....

This declares some public variables I'll need, each as an array so that I can iterate through several steps of do/undo using the undoIndex. I then use them to save each range I am about to change by calling the following macro within my actual data-manipulating macros:

VB:
Sub Save_RangeForUndo(rng As Range)
Dim i As Integer
Dim cell As Range

undoIndex = undoIndex + 1

[Code] .....

If you look at the last line here, this is my problem; I can't figure out how to properly use an array to hold each instance of OldSelection() for later referral. Just for completeness, here is my actual undo macro:

VB:
Sub Undo_Operation()
Dim i As Integer
OldWorkbooks(undoIndex).Activate
OldWorksheets(undoIndex).Activate

[Code] .....

I need to get this OldSlctVariant()() array to hold each instance of OldSelection() so that I can restore them for each consecutive undo. I'm not very familiar with the variant type and anything more than the basic use of arrays.

## Range Variant Looping Macro Many Workbooks

Nov 6, 2009

I have about 20 different workbooks and i want to create identical tables and graphs in each one of them using the least number of steps.

The number of the rows changes by workbook but the colums are identical. So the range will vary by workbook.

so for example:

workbook1=

name sales
a 10
b 20
c 30

workbook2=
name sales
a 10

So I want a macro that does the tabling and charting in workbook1 and automatically moves to workbook2 and so on.

## Converting Variant Return Type From Evaluate To Integer

Oct 7, 2009

I would like to get the return value for an evaluate statement which is a variant data type, convert it to an integer and do some computation. I have 4 test programs, the first 3 all work, the 4ths does not.

The first sd_test(returns 1) and st_test1(returns 1) demonstrate that my evaluate statement is correct and works,

sd_test2(returns 3) shows that I can convert a variant to an integer

in sd_test3(returns #VALUE!) I try to put both together and it doesn't work?

## Formula For Deleting A Formula When The Formula Has Done Its Calculation

Oct 7, 2009

I was wondering if there is a formla that will delete a formula when it has done its calculation, or stop the formula from constantly updating.

I've got a formula

=IF(COUNTA(A1)=1,TODAY(),"")

When something is typed in Cell A1 the cell with the formula will input todays date.

Is there a formula that will stop this formula from updating, as when you go into the file on a different day the date would have been updated.

## CInt(Variant) Give Errror = Run-Time Error 6, Overflow

Feb 11, 2009

I wanted to convert a variant to an integer. The variant data is stored in an array, the variant data was entered from a userform.

Private Sub CB_OilPrice_Click()
Dim xx As Long
UserFormSpecifyDetail.Show 'Enter data

For i = 1 To 120
xx = VarType(UserFormInputArray(i)) 'Returns 8
xx = Int(UserFormInputArray(i)) 'Returns error
Next i
End Sub

The value in UserFormInputArray = "50000"
error = Run-Time error 6, overflow

## 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.

## Replace Cell References In Formula With The Header Of The Cells Referenced In Said Formula

Dec 22, 2009

Here is the scenario:
A B C D
BananasApplesOrangesTotal113=A1+B1+C1

I need to reference the formula in D1 with the cells headers names.

In a perfect world, it would take
=A1+B1+C1:

and produce:
=Bananas+Apples+Oranges

## Add Additional Formula To Existing Formula To Exclude Weekends And Holidays?

Mar 27, 2014

I have an existing formula in a cell linking back to a start date only. determining how to add an additional formula to exclude weekends, and possibly holidays.
