Proper way to add an "or" expression in VBA

Posted on 2011-09-07
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hello,  Please see the expression below:originally it read as follows:
If Trim(Cell) = "41 Rank" ,Then
            Cell.Offset(0, 57)

However, I'd like to add another variable to the expression so it performs the same actiona if the cell reads "41 Rank" or "42 Rank".  I tried just adding the word "or" as it's written below, but the macro didn't work. I would appreciate any assistance you can offer.

If Trim(Cell) = "41 Rank" or "42 Rank" ,Then
            Cell.Offset(0, 57)

Thank you, do I need the underscores? and do I also need a comma before Then?

comma is not needed - the underscores are just "line continuation" characters (preceeding space is required), makes code a little easier to read on multiple lines rather then on a single line.
