how to multiply two cells in a (relative) column

Hi All,

Today I would like to know how to multiply two scenarios:

1 = if((evaluate(Worksheets("Tickets").Cells(r1, "A").value * Worksheets("Tickets").Cells(r1, "B").value) < evaluate(worksheets("OtherSheets").cells(r1, "D")), 1, 0)  
2 = if((evaluate(Worksheets("Tickers").Cells(r1, "A").value * Worksheets("OtherSheet").cells($d$1).value) < evaluate(worksheets("thisSheet")$e$1)

'not sure  if I have the .cells($d$1) & $e$1 notation right to begin with, in fact I am pretty certain it is butchered and good.

so I would like to know how to write this so that I can do two things:

1.  Write the formulas and "get them ready" to evaluate and get a number (for each formula.)
2. Put the formulas in and have them evaluate, and just get a number and skip the formula  (for each formula.)

Does that make sense?

Does r1 refer to row 1 or is this a variable in your routine?

I'm not sure what you mean by "get them ready".

Are you trying to replace formulas with values in your worksheet?

I'm used to seeing worksheet formulas that look simpler:
=IF((Tickets!A3*Tickets!B3)<OtherSheet!D3,1,0)

Open in new window

or
=IF((Tickets!RC[-4]*Tickets!RC[-3])<OtherSheet!RC[-1],1,0)

Open in new window

Try

= IIf(Evaluate(Worksheets("Tickets").Cells(r1, "A").Value * Worksheets("Tickets").Cells(r1, "B").Value) < Evaluate(Worksheets("OtherSheets").Cells(r1, "D")), 1, 0)

and

a = IIf(Evaluate(Worksheets("Tickers").Cells(r1, "A").Value * Worksheets("OtherSheet").Range("$d$1").Value) < Evaluate(Worksheets("thisSheet").Range("$e$1")), 1, 0)

OK that works.  Now how do I get it into this kind of form for both equations above?

"= If(quotes!V" & i & ">Constants!AK" & i & ", 1, 0)"

....where we are "pasting in" the formula?

thanks!
