="<=>"&A1

Do you mean you want to use a formula which uses 'less than' or 'greater than'?

sorry. I guess a better explanation would be:

I need to insert a big arrow smth like <=> that people can see in the spread sheet and write text in heart of the arrow (=)

You can use something like this...

"<"& " Your Text here" &"=" & "Your text here" &">"

For adding lines in VBA, you can use the functions below:

replace StartX etc with numbers or variables
ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddLine(StartX, StartY, EndX, EndY).Select
Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadStyle = msoArrowheadTriangle
Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadLength = msoArrowheadLengthMedium
Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadWidth = msoArrowheadWidthMedium
Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadLength = msoArrowheadLengthMedium
Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadWidth = msoArrowheadWidthMedium
Selection.ShapeRange.Line.EndArrowheadStyle = msoArrowheadTriangle

Open in new window
