Error msg: Unable to access Worksheet function

I am writing a function in VBA which needs to find the average of a range of cells.
the range varies, so is passed to my function by another function (which I have tested and works fine).

My function looks like this:

Function AvSqFtbyQ(quart As Integer) As Integer
'calculates the average square footage per quartile
Dim hold As Integer
Dim Rng As String

Rng = GetRangeQ(quart)
hold = Application.WorksheetFunction.Average(Rng)
AvSqFtbyQ = hold

End Function


When I test it in the Immediate Window I get error number 1004: "Unable to get the Average property of the Worksheet Function Class."

am I missing a reference library or do I need to install something?

any ideas as to what is going on here?

thanks, I know I've been asking a lot of questions lately!

Sasha

Hi Sasha, what does the getrange exactly return? i see a string this modified one works

Function AvSqFtbyQ(quart As Integer) As Integer
'calculates the average square footage per quartile
Dim hold As Integer
Dim Rng As Range

Set Rng = GetRangeQ(quart)
hold = Application.WorksheetFunction.Average(Rng)
AvSqFtbyQ = hold

End Function

presuming your return a range from the getrange function

actually GetRangeQ returns a string.

I tried just typing in the value in the Immediate window,
debug.pring application.WorksheetFunction.average(C4:C14)
and got the same error #1004.

thanks

the sring must be formatted like "C4:C14" and tehn this will do

hold = Application.WorksheetFunction.Average(Range(Rng))

one more detail, how do I get the "s around it?
if I tell it
hold = Application.WorksheetFunction.Average(Range(" & Rng & "))
It thinks I'm telling it "& Rng &"

thanks,
Sasha

allright a bit of rereading

getrange(X) returns a string like C10:C14

then

hold = Application.WorksheetFunction.Average(Range(Rng))

has to work as is without any formatting or does it not?

i presume this is a folloow up on your access question?

why, yes it is a follow-up to my access question :)
I'm almost done with this project.

hold = Application.WorksheetFunction.Average(Range(Rng))
works, I had mistyped it.

thanks for all your help!

you might see questions on creating graphs in VBA tomorrow...
