the above statement writes the string as it is it writes =SUM(C13,E13,G13,I13,K13,M13,O13,Q13 in the specified cell (10,13)instead of calculating the value from the given cells. Can some one tell me how to do this please see that the cells are from alternate columns but in the same row.
thanks in advance. Its kind of urgent
Thanks agian

I was able to specify the specific cells. See my last post.

gdewrell,
i tried the same thing .cells(5, 1).Formula = "=sum(e10,e11)" but it still writes a string as>>>>>>>> =sum(e10,e11)i dont know why it does this
Can you please post the relevant code section for this
Thanks
Dave

For i = 0 To cnt - 1
r = m_iCancelled + 2 + i '//////// this would be the starting row
str = "A" & r & ":" & "AC" & r
With m_oXLSheet
.Cells.Range(str).Insert ''''''''''''insert one row
.Cells(r, 1) = strAry(i) ''''''''''''insert value in col 1 stored in array
strSum = "=SUM(" '''''''''''created a sum formula to sum
For j = 1 To 12
c = j + j + 1 ''''''''''puts required column fileds in c which are alternate starting from 3 then 5 then 7....
.Cells(r, c) = 0 '''''''''''adds 0 to all the cells of the newly inserted row
If j = 12 Then '''''''''''''removes the last comma which gets inserted in strSum
strSum = strSum & ch & r
Else
strSum = strSum & ch & r & ","
End If
Next j
strSum = strSum & ")" '''''''''''this strSum does give me exactly the string which i want
.Cells(r, 27) = strSum '''''''but here is the problem this line writes the string instead of calculating
''''''''i tried with .cells(r,27).formula = strSum and also with .cells(r,27).value = strSum
'''''''' still puts the string in cell(r,27) instead of calculating it

Next i
i spend a long time figuring it out can some 1 please help its urgernt
Your code is doing what you are telling it to - putting the formula in the cell.
Now you need to cause a calculation of that formula, like you would use F9 in Excel.
Try using the Calculate method on your worksheet object
m_oXLSheet.UsedRange.Columns("A:C").Calculate
change the columns to what ever columns you want.
Here is a copy of MS help on the subject;
Calculate Method
Calculates all open workbooks, a specific worksheet in a workbook, or a specified range of cells on a worksheet, as shown in the following table.
To calculate Follow this example
All open workbooks Application.Calculate (or just Calculate)
A specific worksheet Worksheets(1).Calculate
A specified range Worksheets(1).Rows(2).Calculate
expression.Calculate
expression Optional for Application, required for Worksheet and Range. An expression that returns an object in the Applies To list.
Example
This example calculates the formulas in columns A, B, and C in the used range on Sheet1.
For i = 0 To cnt - 1
r = m_iCancelled + 2 + i
str = "A" & r & ":" & "AC" & r
With m_oXLSheet
.Cells.Range(str).Insert
.Cells(r, 1) = strAry(i)
strSum = "=SUM("
For j = 1 To 12
c = j + j + 1
.Cells(r, c) = 0
If j = 12 Then
strSum = strSum & ch & r
Else
strSum = strSum & ch & r & ","
End If
Next j
strSum = strSum & ")"
.Cells(r, 27).formula = strSum
End With
Next i
m_oXLSheet.calculate
it started working when i change the column format from text to numeric.. i know it is kind of silly.
.cells(row,col).values = "sum(a1,b1,c1)" worked when i change the column format to numeric.
Thanks all for your effort
See if this helps you out some.
