Range of boject-worksheet failed

Folks,
In the below code at the very first line I am getting this error:
Method 'Range of Object_worksheet failed.
Private Sub cmdCheckTDT_Click()
If Range(A8).Text = "Football game: Tyle vs Winston starts 16.10.2013 exactly at 16:00 !!" Then
    Range("A7").Locked = False
    Range("A7").Font.Color = vbWhite
    Range("A7").Interior.Color = vbRed
    Range("A7").Value = "Correct"
    
Else
    Range("A7").Value = "Error"
    Range("A7").Font.Color = vbYellow
    Range("A7").Interior.Color = vbBlack
    Range("A7").Locked = True
    CheckFormulaFunction
    Exit Sub
End If
FormulasOK

End Sub

Open in new window

Here's the code in A8:
=B4 & " starts " & TEXT(B5,"DD.MM.YYYY") & " exactly at " & TEXT(B6,"hh:mm") & " !!"

Open in new window


I'm simply trying to pull what's in A8 to what should be in A8 and that determines what happens next.

try putting A8 in double quotes.

If that doesn't work you may need to more explicity identify the range you are referring to...

example : thisWorkbook.sheets("Sheet1").Range("A8")

OK folks - I think I foundthe error of my ways
Range(A8) needs to be Range ("A8")
