I  need to write custom formula for spread in my application, but so far i have tried using only normal formulas even which arent working.

with vaSpread1
       .row = 1
       .col = 1
       .value = 1

       .row = 1
       .col = 2
       .value = 2

       .recalc = true
       .row = 1
       .col = 3
       .formula = "SUM(A1,B1)"
end with

But i dont find the value reflected in that cell when i run the code. Plez help.. this is urgent and its driving me nuts..

would have loved to assign lots of points but dont have that many.. so plez bear..

thanks in advance,

Hi rekhasri,

The below code should help

set vaSpread1 = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("NameOfWorkSheet")
With vaSpread1
       .Cells(1, 1).Value = 1
       .Cells(1, 2).Value = 2
       .Cells(1, 3).Formula = "=SUM($A$1:$B$1)"
End With
