VBA: Range inside a Range

Hi,
i need to find a way to know if a given range is inside other.
In example:
If my range is "F8" and my main target range is "A1:F7", my range is not inside but if my range is "C4" it is.
It would be done without a loop since that would be called several times in a minute and user shoul never know that this function is performed.
If you need more explanation or knows a better approach, i am open to any tip that can solve this matter.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You need to use "Intersect".

Option Explicit
Public Sub Q_20937308()

  Dim objRange                                          As Range
 
  Set objRange = Intersect(Range("A1:F7"), Range("F8"))
 
  If Not (objRange Is Nothing) Then
     MsgBox "Intersects"
  Else
     MsgBox "Does not Intersect"
  End If
 
  Set objRange = Nothing
 
End Sub


BFN,

Many Thanks.
It would be nice if you do a little explanation of how that function works (more than the poor VBA help text ;)

Well...

Each of the parameters specify ranges in the worksheet and the function (object) is set to the range where all the parameters intersect.

For example,

... = Intersect(Range("A1:Z65535"), Range("B2:G10"), Range("C4:D5"))

will return $C$4:$D$5 as the Address of the Intersect range as this is the range that is present in all three parameter ranges.

Hope that made sense.

Thanks for the points/grading.

BFN,

many thanks again. I never grade less than an "A", otherwise i directly ask for deletion/PAQ/refund points since if solution works, deserves an "A" otherwise, problem not solved so why to put any grade at all, don't you think so?

Hi,

Sometimes links to sites or previous answers with relevance are posted as comments rather than the code or comment relevant to the question, and therefore they may only be worthy of a "B", but yes, I see your point.

HTH.

To me, it doesn't matters if it is genuine code or a link to it.
If it is a solution to the problem, enougth to me.
I posted links several times when answer questions, many times due to links contains code that not belongs to me so, i don't like to 'stole' code from other programmers and pass them as mine.
Cheers
Have a nice day.
