This statement below is true, but it is not recognizing it as true. I assume it is because I need to put the Chr(34) somewhere but I do not know where I need to. Can you help me?

If Application.Evaluate(Chr(34) & InStr(r.Offset(0, VarA1).Value, VarC1) > 0 & Chr(34)) Then run code a

Why are you using Evaluate at all? Why not:
If InStr(1, r.Offset(0, VarA1).Value, VarC1) > 0 Then 'run code a

the code I am using is very complicated, I just threw in that one line

The reason I am using evaluate is because I have a variable that is equal to:
=
<> 
>
<
and the only way to use those is with evaluate.

If you have an operator, as in your earlier question, you do not need the Chr(34) at all. This is because you are concatenating several values, and the result is a string. Putting that string inside double quotes then causes an error because the double quotes aren't required.

FYI, you only needed the CHR(34) before because you were comparing text strings ("M"="M" is true, but M=M makes Excel think M is a variable of some kind). Here you are are comparing numbers, so you wouldn't need the CHR(34).
