Dynamic and Static in formula

Merry Christmas and Pre-Happy New Years to All.

Quick question about how to combine a static and dynamic formula in vba.

Here is what I have so far:

Dim r as String
r = target.row

Dim a as String

This is just for the "right hand side of the equation."  The left hand side is already done and fine.

Here goes:

"=((sheet1!T4)/(Sheet2!AF5 + Sheet3!AT3)) "/sheet4!AM" & r & "

So T4, AF5, and AT3 are all static meaning that the program should use these cells all the time.  In other words,  \$T\$4, \$AF\$5, and \$AT\$4.

AM is the dynamic and slides up and down the range relative to the trigger.

Anybody want to take a quick shot at this?  I know I almost have it but I think my problem is around the sheet!4AM part and specifically the "dividing" part  "/".

thanks for you input.

Hello,

if you enter the formula with the .Formula command, then you can place the \$ signs for absolute references, just like in a worksheet formula, so use  \$T\$4, \$AF\$5, and \$AT\$3 and no \$ signs for Sheet4!AM

cheers, teylyn

Not sure the asker's "thank you" comment is the solution. He is thanking for the advice in comment #39744386, so that should be the accepted answer.

Still can't get this bad boy to work.  Can you suggest anything?

Worksheets("Basic").Range(a).offset(0,-12).formula = "=((Acc!\$T\$4)/(Q!\$AF\$1011 + constants!\$AT\$3)) "/(Brains!AY" & r & ")

The compiler does not like the right hand of the statement.  Any help is appreciated.

thanks,

Watch your double quotes. The one in front of the slash is wrong, and should be moved to the very end of the string.
