VBA Run-Time Error 13

Hi all,

When I input the following code, I get runtime error 13, type mismatch upon running it. This only occurs when the referenced cells (F8,H8,G8,I8) are blank. If I do input numbers into those cells, the code runs fine. Any ideas why this may be? Thanks.

Private Sub worksheet_deactivate()

If Evaluate("IF(AND(AND(OR(((F8-I8)/I8>0.2),((F8-I8)/I8<-0.2)),NOT(ISBLANK(I8)),NOT(ISBLANK(F8))),AND(NOT(ISBLANK(F8)),NOT(ISBLANK(G8)),NOT(ISBLANK(H8)),NOT(SUM(G8+H8)=F8))),TRUE,FALSE)") Then
MsgBox "Test", vbOKCancel

End If
End Sub

Try this

Private Sub worksheet_deactivate()
    On Error Resume Next
    If Evaluate("IF(AND(AND(OR(((F8-I8)/I8>0.2),((F8-I8)/I8<-0.2)),NOT(ISBLANK(I8)),NOT(ISBLANK(F8))),AND(NOT(ISBLANK(F8)),NOT(ISBLANK(G8)),NOT(ISBLANK(H8)),NOT(SUM(G8+H8)=F8))),TRUE,FALSE)") Then
    MsgBox "Test", vbOKCancel
    
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
End Sub

Or assign it to a Variant and use IsError:
Private Sub worksheet_deactivate()
Dim varReturn
varReturn = Evaluate("IF(AND(AND(OR(((F8-I8)/I8>0.2),((F8-I8)/I8<-0.2)),NOT(ISBLANK(I8)),NOT(ISBLANK(F8))),AND(NOT(ISBLANK(F8)),NOT(ISBLANK(G8)),NOT(ISBLANK(H8)),NOT(SUM(G8+H8)=F8))),TRUE,FALSE)") 
If Not IsError(varreturn) Then
  If varReturn Then MsgBox "Test", vbOKCancel
End If
End Sub

Dear shoaibs,


the problem is caused because the formula has this F8-I8)/I8>0.2),((F8-I8)/I8<-0.2)),
and if the cells or blank excel can not calulate..

You have to test before if the cells are empty and if not you can calculate the rest..

Kind regards

Hi Sid,

Thanks for the response. I'm using the popup message as a validation of sorts. When I use your code, the textbox pops up even if the cells are blank, I need the msgbox to only appear if the evaluate statement is true. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

Thanks.

Rory's code works great, my next question is how would I go about adding additional evaluates to that e.g. the same formula but for the row below it. I want one single msgbox to popup if any of the rows (I have about 10) make the formula true.

Thanks.

BTW, are these formulas currently in use as CF formulas for the cells you want to test?

So which cells are you actually wanting to test?
