Hi Experts,

I have reached the bounds of my limited capability and could do with some assistance with my excel VBA

I am wanting to assess a variable 'ProjectTo' with an if statement.

Current State

My VBA currently takes values from specified cells in an active sheet and subsequently passes these to an SQL string, which is all working fine.


Dim ProjectTo As String
Dim ProjecTFrom As String


ProjectFrom = ActiveSheet.Range("C16").Value
ProjectTo = ActiveSheet.Range("C17").Value

Desired State

For the 'ProjectTo' I would like to use an IF statement, along the line of "if the cell contents 'C17' is empty then use a hardcoded value of say '999999' else use the cells contents"

I have tried inserting IF statements into the above (current state) however receive error messages that I am unable to get past and therefore need some expert assistance please.

Many thanks

if you want the variable ProjectTo to have the 99999 value, not the cell C17, then maybe

If  ActiveSheet.Range("C17") = "" Then
    ProjectTo = "999999"
Else
   ProjectTo =  ActiveSheet.Range("C17")
End If
