Dear experts -
I have a function, but it's choking on the very first line of the declaration:

Public Function salesvalue(sortstatus As String, optional Milestone_ID As Integer, periodtype As String, whichperiod As Integer, includeprior As Boolean, TotalEstValue As Double, optional QuoteAmnt As Double, StartDate As Date, optional ExpDate As Date, optional EstDuration As Integer, weighted As Boolean, optional Probability As Double) As Double

The error message I get is: "syntax error"; it also shows "expected: Optional" if I try to edit it.

Any ideas?

Thanks -

As I recall, All optional parameters need to follow the required parameters.  Your second option (Milestone_ID) is marked as optional.  That means that everything that follows it needs to be optional as well.  However, several of the following options are not optional.

To fix, move all of your optional parameters to the end of the declaration.  This may require some changes on the lines where you are calling this function.  Just be sure to make the same changes in order.
