Could someone please tell me what is the problem with my vba code? When I try to debug it I keep getting that 'error 1004 application-defined or object-defined error'. I have tried different things with the syntax but I can't seem to find the issue. Thanks.

Sub Multiplier()

' Updates Multiplier column with '1' or '-1'
  Dim lastRow As Long
    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Range("E2").Formula = "=IF(OR(A2=41826,A2=50529,A2=50530,A2=51807,A2=51828,A2=51850,A2=51851,A2=51852,A2=51853,A2=51854,A2=51855,A2=51856,A2=51857,A2=51858,A2=51859,A2=51860,A2=51861,A2=51862,A2=51863,A2=51864,A2=51865,A2=51866,A2=51899,A2=E5184_I,A2=E5732_I) ""-1"", ""1"")"
    Range("E2").AutoFill Destination:=Range("E2:E" & lastRow), Type:=xlFillDefault

End Sub

I have highlighted the error producing parts in bold

    Range("E2").Formula = "=IF(OR(A2=41826,A2=50529,A2=50530,A2=51807,A2=51828,A2=51850,A2=51851,A2=51852,A2=51853,A2=51854,A2=51855,A2=51856,A2=51857,A2=51858,A2=51859,A2=51860,A2=51861,A2=51862,A2=51863,A2=51864,A2=51865,A2=51866,A2=51899,A2=E5184_I,A2=E5732_I),""-1"", ""1"")"

Second try with underlines
    Range("E2").Formula = "=IF(OR(A2=41826,A2=50529,A2=50530,A2=51807,A2=51828,A2=51850,A2=51851,A2=51852,A2=51853,A2=51854,A2=51855,A2=51856,A2=51857,A2=51858,A2=51859,A2=51860,A2=51861,A2=51862,A2=51863,A2=51864,A2=51865,A2=51866,A2=51899,A2=E5184_I,A2=E5732_I),""-1"", ""1"")"

I mean this code

  Range("E2").Formula = "=IF(OR(A2=41826,A2=50529,A2=50530,A2=51807,A2=51828,A2=51850,A2=51851,A2=51852,A2=51853,A2=51854,A2=51855,A2=51856,A2=51857,A2=51858,A2=51859,A2=51860,A2=51861,A2=51862,A2=51863,A2=51864,A2=51865,A2=51866,A2=51899,A2=""E5184_I"",A2=""E5732_I""), ""-1"", ""1"")"
