Good Day Experts!

I am having an issue when the formatting routine executes against the Excel spreadsheet that is created by this application. It is a VB6 program that I ran the conversion on.  I have not made any code changes to this formatting routine.  

Here is the line thatI am getting the error on:
If exlWS.Cells(x, 7) <> "" Then exlWS.Cells(x, 7) = CDec(exlWS.Cells(x, 7))

I attached the pop-up error message box.

Thanks,

I'm not seeing the attachment. Also let me know what data you are trying to convert to a decimal.

Ok, that got me past the first part and now on the ...Then exlWS.Cells(x, 7) = CDec(exlWS.Cells(x, 7)) I get an error:

Conversion from type 'Range' to type 'Decimal' is not valid.

Either use ToString or use .Value

CDec(exlWS.Cells(x, 7).Value)
