Hi everyone,

while stepping through code in excel i saw this

-somevalue has the value of 36.8
-in the debugger
-?Range("J" & iRow - 4) gave 0
-?Range("L" & iRow - 4) gave 36.8

so you would expect this statement to be true and teh code go into dosomething

select case somevalue
  case is = Range("J" & iRow - 4) Or Range("L" & iRow - 4)
    dosomething
  '......more comes here
end select

-the following worked as expected

select case somevalue
  case is = Range("J" & iRow - 4)
    dosomething
  case is = Range("L" & iRow - 4)
  '......more comes here
end select

-in the debugger the statement Range("J" & iRow - 4) Or Range("L" & iRow - 4) gave 37!

am i missing something here, it's not a real problem only a question maybe i'm doing something wrong in using the OR statement in the case select

replaced the line with

Case Is = Range("J" & iRow - 4): Case Is = Range("L" & iRow - 4)

which worked ok but i still want to know about the case select and the OR

I think
case Range("J" & iRow - 4) , Range("L" & iRow - 4)


in VB we say

SELECT CASE VARA
    CASE A,B
        ' means vara = a or vara=b
        dosomething
    case c

    case is > C

    Case ELSE

end select

I think that the .Value tries to read an integer value.
Try reading it as a string ?
