You can first define a named range for the data, then enter the formula using named range.

    ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add Name:="DataRng", RefersToR1C1:="=Sheet1!R1C1:R9C1"
    Range("C2").FormulaR1C1 = "=MATCH(2,INDEX(1/(DataRng=""Apple""),0))"

Open in new window


Using named range makes your life much easier.

Evaluate("=MATCH(2,INDEX(1/(A1:A9=""Apple""),0))")
