VBA EDITOR CODE

Hi,

I am inputting a formula via the editor. My formula in the editor is

 ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
  "=TEXT(MID(CELL(""filename"",A1),FIND(""-"",CELL(""filename"",A1),1)+2,FIND(""]"",CELL(""filename"",A1),1)-(FIND(""-"",CELL(""filename"",A1),1)+2)-4),""yyyymmdd"")"

When it places it in excel, it puts apostrophes (') around Cells A1 which causes a name error

How can avoid this?

Thanks
Seamus

Change this:

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1

to just this:

ActiveCell.Formula

Use ampersands and quotes... try this.

 ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
  "=TEXT(MID(CELL(" & Filename & ",A1),FIND(""-"",CELL(" & Filename & ",A1),1)+2,FIND(""]"",CELL(" & Filename & ",A1),1)-(FIND(""-"",CELL(" & Filename & ",A1),1)+2)-4),""yyyymmdd"")"
