Hello,

you're not closing the brackets in the right place

=IF(ISERROR(1-F3/E3),0,(1-F3/E3))

You forgot "("
ActiveCell.Formula = "=IF(ISERROR(1-F3/E3),0,(1-F3/E3))"

He teylin, I do not understand what you mean with brackets?

is )     or is it "
this was my formula

"=IF(ISERROR(1-F3/E3,0,(1-F3/E3))"
this is yours?
 =IF(ISERROR(1-F3/E3),0,(1-F3/E3))

Where is the difference?

These are brackets ()

these are double quotes ""

the formula in your post is

=IF(ISERROR(1-F3/E3,0,(1-F3/E3))  -- you are not closing the IsError correctly
=IF(ISERROR(1-F3/E3),0,(1-F3/E3))

It's the missing closing bracket after the first E3.

cheers, teylyn

Can you please explain why you ignored my suggestion, which put the missing bracket in exactly the same place, giving an explanation about it, and all that 4 minutes before the answer you accepted?

All,
 
Following a request by teylyn (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26838365.html) to the closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Experts.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
 
Thank you,
