Type MisMatch

All of a sudden I am getting a Type Mismatch  error on the following first section of code and can not figure out why? The code has been running fine for the last week????
Can you suggest something?

Sub SenClient()
    If Application.Evaluate("=MATCH(LEFT(B15,12),LEFT(FIIS,12),0)") Then 
MsgBox "Careful Sensitive Client", vbOKOnly, "Sensitive Client"
End Sub

Open in new window

Why not try using Application.WorksheetFunction.Match instead of Evaluate?

Or perhaps even some native VBA functions?

You might also want to look at using COUNTIF which can use wildcard characters.

=COUNTIF(LIIS, LEFT(B15,12)&"*")

That formula would return 0 for no match and 1+ if there is a match(s).

you have to check the data contained in both B15, and in FIIS.  you might be comparing a text string against a number.... or against "N/A" or something.  If you are comparing against a number... you could add something like ("=MATCH(LEFT(cstr(B15),12),LEFT(cstr(FIIS),12),0)").... to make sure you only have strings.

Thank you for the advice. I rechecked  B15 and reformatted it as Test and I checked FIIS ( A named Range for AI2-AI31) which was already text. However, I still get the Mismatch error.
What else can I do ?

I would imagine from your few lines of code that due to the nature of this workbook it is not something you can post on here, am I correct?  That would be helpful to see, but I understand if it cannot be uploaded.

What do you get when you put the formula in a cell? Does it compute then or do you get an error code (#NAME or something)? The rrror code will give some further idea of where the error lies.
Let us know.

At a minimum, we need to see the data from b15 and the data from each of the cells in fiis

The Data is B15 is a string copied from the Windows Clipboard "Plan # 23456"
FIIS  is a named range for a list. The list consists of Plans . Plan # 23345, Plan # 4567, Plan # 5678, Plan # 7896, all strings

Repeat from my earlier question: What do you get when you put the formula in a cell?

If you use this in a cell it only works if entered as an array formula.  Can you try adding the ".FormulaArray" to your code?
