Hello,
can you please help,

how do I break this long line into multiple lines.

I tried the (space then _ then enter ) at end of a line, it didn't work,
I tried the (" & _ then enter ) at end of a line, it didn't work,

error, Expected line number or end statement

    Const Fmla1 = "=OR(A2=(""1300"",""1302"",""1303"",""1304"",""1305"",""1310"",""1311"",""1314"",""1315"",""1316"",""1318"",""1320"",""1321"",""1322"",""1323"",""1324"",""1325"",""1326"",""1330"",""1336"",""1338"",""1340"",""1341"",""1345"",""1350"",""1353"",""1355"",""1357"",""1358"",""1360"",""1362"",""1365"",""1370"",""1378"",""1379"",""1380"",""1381"",""1382"",""1385"",""3500"",""3506"",""3507"",""3514"",""3521"",""3528"",""3534"",""3535"",""3542"",""3545"",""3600"",""3601"",""3608"",""3609"",""3610"",""3611"",""3612"",""3613"",""3614"",""3616"",""3624"",""3625"",""3626"",""3627"",""3628"",""3629"",""3630"",""3631"",""3632"",""3637"",""3642"",""3643"",""3648"",""3649"",""3650"",""3651"",""3653"",""3654"",""3655"",""3656"",""3659"",""3660"",""3662"",""3664"",""3665"",""3666"",""3700"",""3702"",""3703"",""3704"",""3705"",""3708"",""3709"",""3710"",""3715"",""3720"",""3725"",""3727"",""3730"",""3735"",""3736"",""3737"",""3738"",""3745"",""3750"",""3751"",""3754"",""3760"",""3761"",""3762"",""3763"" , ""3764"",""3765"",""3766"",""3767"",""3771"",

You can't break a constant up with line breaks (space followed by an underscore).

Alternatives: store the value in a cell and load it into a variable or build it in code.

Building it:

    Dim Fmla1 As String
    Fmla1 = "=OR(A2=(""" & Join(Array(1300, 1302, 1303, 1304, 1305, 1310, 1311, 1314, 1315, 1316, 1318, 1320, 1321, 1322, 1323, 1324, 1325, 1326, 1330, 1336, 1338, 1340, 1341, 1345, 1350, 1353, 1355, 1357, 1358, 1360, 1362, 1365, 1370, 1378, 1379, 1380, 1381, 1382, 1385, 3500, 3506, 3507, 3514, 3521, 3528, 3534, 3535, 3542, 3545, 3600, 3601, 3608, 3609, 3610, 3611, 3612, 3613, 3614, 3616, 3624, 3625, 3626, 3627, 3628, 3629, 3630, 3631, 3632, 3637, 3642, 3643, 3648, 3649, 3650, 3651, 3653, 3654, 3655, 3656, 3659, 3660, 3662, 3664, 3665, 3666, 3700, 3702, 3703, 3704, 3705, 3708, 3709, 3710, 3715, 3720, 3725, 3727, 3730, 3735, 3736, 3737, 3738, 3745, 3750, 3751, 3754, 3760, 3761, 3762, 3763, 3764, 3765, 3766, 3767, 3771, 3777, 3778, 3779, 3781, 3785, 3786, 3794, 3795, 3796, 3844, 3848, 3851, 3854, 3857), """,""") & """))"

Replace the assignment statement with this:

    Dim Fmla1 As String
    Fmla1 = "=OR(A2={""" & Join(Array(1300, 1302, 1303, 1304, 1305, 1310, 1311, 1314, 1315, 1316, 1318, 1320, 1321, 1322, 1323, 1324, 1325, 1326, 1330, 1336, 1338, 1340, 1341, 1345, 1350, 1353, 1355, 1357, 1358, 1360, 1362, 1365, 1370, 1378, 1379, 1380, 1381, 1382, 1385, 3500, 3506, 3507, 3514, 3521, 3528, 3534, 3535, 3542, 3545, 3600, 3601, 3608, 3609, 3610, 3611, 3612, 3613, 3614, 3616, 3624, 3625, 3626, 3627, 3628, 3629, 3630, 3631, 3632, 3637, 3642, 3643, 3648, 3649, 3650, 3651, 3653, 3654, 3655, 3656, 3659, 3660, 3662, 3664, 3665, 3666, 3700, 3702, 3703, 3704, 3705, 3708, 3709, 3710, 3715, 3720, 3725, 3727, 3730, 3735, 3736, 3737, 3738, 3745, 3750, 3751, 3754, 3760, 3761, 3762, 3763, 3764, 3765, 3766, 3767, 3771, 3777, 3778, 3779, 3781, 3785, 3786, 3794, 3795, 3796, 3844, 3848, 3851, 3854, 3857), """,""") & """})"
