Hello Experts,

Can someone please tell me why I keep on getting a Run-time error, Type mismatch when I open my spreadsheet with the following code. When click on debug it highlights the following:

 If Stocks(i) <> .Value Then




Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Dim cel As Range
Dim Addr As Variant, Targ As Variant
Static Stocks(3) As Double      'Starts with element 0
Dim i As Long, n As Long
Addr = Array("AQ3", "AV3", "AP3", "AU3")    'Watch these cells for price changes
Targ = Array(85, 85, 20, 20)                'Look for prices above these threshhold values
n = UBound(Stocks)
For i = 0 To n
    With Range(Addr(i))
        If Stocks(i) <> .Value Then
            Stocks(i) = .Value
            If .Value > Targ(i) Then
                Open "C:\Users\User\Documents\ABC.txt" For Append As #1  'Change path & name to suit
                Write #1, .Address(False, False), .Value, Date, Format(Time, "hh:mm:ss.ss")
                Close 1
            End If
        End If
    End With
Next
End Sub

It's because AU3 contains a #DIV/0! error and therefore is not numeric. You coulod add a check to your code as follows:
Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Dim cel As Range
Dim Addr As Variant, Targ As Variant
Static Stocks(3) As Double      'Starts with element 0
Dim i As Long, n As Long
Addr = Array("AQ3", "AV3", "AP3", "AU3")    'Watch these cells for price changes
Targ = Array(85, 85, 20, 20)                'Look for prices above these threshhold values
n = UBound(Stocks)
For i = 0 To n
    With Range(Addr(i))
        If Not IsError(.Value) Then
            If Stocks(i) <> .Value Then
                Stocks(i) = .Value
                If .Value > Targ(i) Then
                    Open "C:\Users\User\Documents\ABC.txt" For Append As #1  'Change path & name to suit
                    Write #1, .Address(False, False), .Value, Date, Format(Time, "hh:mm:ss.ss")
                    Close 1
                End If
            End If
        End If
    End With
Next
End Sub

Actually you might also want to check that it is numeric, as a non-numeric value would also cause your code to fail.  You could add an IF statement inside the error check like:

If Isnumeric(.Value) Then  .....
