please solve a mystery

I am entering the following formula through a Macro in Excel 2010,

Range("T2").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
        "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(RC[-7],Reviewit,1,0)),""Review"","""")"

When my macro completes in Cell T2 I see not the result of the formula but

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(RC[-7],Reviewit,1,0)),"Review","")

Can an expert please tell me how to resolve this.

Using the more compact form

ActiveSheet.Range("T2").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(RC[-7],Reviewit,1,0)),""Review"","""")"

Open in new window


works for me. Sure that you have pasted the exact code snippet? Check the number of quotes. Test it also on a new sheet/workbook.

Do you mean you see the actuall string '=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(RC[-7],Reviewit,1,0)),"Review","")'?

If you do then it could be that you Excel set to show formulas (Formulas tab>Show Formulas) or it could be that the T2 is formatted as Text.

Problem solved.

I am copying form another file and it is that file that has some weird thing about it so when I copy from A to R my Calc stops working  

if I copy from A to Q it works fine

I will get my question removed
