Why do I need to prefix the test with "application." for "istext" but I don't need to add "application." for "isnumeric"?


If Application.IsText(ActiveCell.Value) Then
        MsgBox "yes"
End If
------------------------------------------------------------
If IsNumeric(ActiveCell.Value) Then
    MsgBox "yes"
End If

Hi,

Because IsText is a WorksheetFunction and IsNumeric a VBA Function
EDIT
 IsNumeric  is Member of VBA.Information
and
IsText  is Member of Excel.WorksheetFunction

Therefore Application.isText
