The footnote contain information. Is there a formular that will pull the footnote?


Example: if the footnote said Boat 234, the formular would pick this up in a cell that is written with a formular.

In VBA, you can use:


ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter, ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter, and ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightFooter
 

See example attached - I created a function you can use (copy Module1 to your workbook):

=getFooter(1) 'to get leftFooter (use 2 for center, and 3 for right)

here's the code:
 
Function getFooter(which As Integer)

    On Error GoTo errHandler
    
    Select Case which:
        Case 1:
            getFooter = ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter
        Case 2:
            getFooter = ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter
        Case 3:
            getFooter = ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightFooter
        Case Else:
            getFooter = ""
    End Select
    
    Exit Function
    
errHandler:
    getFooter = ""
End Function

Open in new window


See attached.

Enjoy!

After a small tweak to Dave's solution - you can return all three of them in a single call:

Function getFooter()

    'On Error GoTo errHandler
   
    getFooter = ""
   
    getFooter = ActiveSheet.PageSetup.LeftFooter & " " & _
                ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterFooter & " " & _
                ActiveSheet.PageSetup.RightFooter
   
    getFooter = Trim(getFooter)
   
    Exit Function
   
errHandler:
    getFooter = ""
End Function

you would use

=getFooter()

to call this function.
