# VBA Excel 2000 - Array formula value to variable

Posted on 2011-02-18

Dear Experts,

Could you please advise how to assign an array formula to a variable?

The attached small code works fine, but I would like if the NumPivotCat would store the formula result without writing it to any cell

thanks,

``````Sub CountCategories()
Dim NumPivotCat As Long
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("C2").FormulaArray = "=SUM(IF(FREQUENCY(IF(LEN(A1:A11)>0,MATCH(A1:A11,A1:A11,0),""""), IF(LEN(A1:A11)>0,MATCH(A1:A11,A1:A11,0),""""))>0,1))+(COUNTIF(A1:A11,"""")>0)"
End Sub
``````
