Excel VBA - Problems with Quotation Marks in Range Formula

Excel VBA - Problems with Quotation Marks in Range Formula

Excel VBA - Problems with Quotation Marks in Range Formula

(OP)
Hi,

I'm using the following code to create a series of named range formulae:

CODE

ImageRanges(TableSz) = "INDEX(PARTS!$E$5:$E$200,MATCH(BOM!$D$" & ImgRowNum & ",PARTS!$B$5:$B$200,0))"
    RangeNames(NItems) = "AsmImage" & NItems
    ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:=RangeNames(NItems), RefersTo:=ImageRanges(TableSz) 

The problem is that the result of my concatenated string above contains starting and ending quotations. So instead of

=INDEX(PARTS!$E$5:$E$200,MATCH(BOM!$D$5,PARTS!$B$5:$B$200,0))

in the Name Manager, I see

="INDEX(PARTS!$E$5:$E$200,MATCH(BOM!$D$5,PARTS!$B$5:$B$200,0))"

And Excel doesn't like that...

How do I get it to strip the quotes from the range?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi,


Dim xl As Application
Set xl = Application
ImageRanges(TableSz) = xl.INDEX(Sheets("PARTS").Range("$E$5:$E$200"),xl.MATCH(Sheets("BOM").Range("$D$" & ImgRowNum),Sheets("PARTS").Range("$B$5:$B$200"),0))

You need "=" in formula, i.e.:
ImageRanges(TableSz) = "=INDEX(PARTS!$E$5:$E$200,...

combo

Thanks combo!

It was the missing "=" that messed me up.
