What is wrong with this code

Hi

Could somebody please help with the below code. When this is run it returns FALSE


    ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Range("A1").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
    Selection.NumberFormat = "_($* #,##0.00_);_($* (#,##0.00);_($* ""-""??_);_(@_)"
    Selection.Style = "Currency"
    Selection.Font.Bold = True
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop).LineStyle = xlNone
    With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeBottom)
        .LineStyle = xlContinuous
        .ColorIndex = 0
        .TintAndShade = 0
        .Weight = xlThin
    End With
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeRight).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideVertical).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
    Workbooks.Item("Main Data Sheet.xls").Close
 
What we want it to do is just format the cell as currency, bold & underline.

Thanks in advance

Use only this part
Select cells and then run this

Sub test ()
Selection.NumberFormat = "_($* #,##0.00_);_($* (#,##0.00);_($* ""-""??_);_(@_)"
    Selection.Style = "Currency"
    Selection.FNot.bold=true
End sub

Hi,

You should replace all the text between the lines Sub (something) and End Sub of your code

with

Selection.NumberFormat = "_($* #,##0.00_);_($* (#,##0.00);_($* ""-""??_);_(@_)"
    Selection.Style = "Currency"
    Selection.Font.Bold=True

Sorry I wasn't very clear. We need the rest of the code as is. We just don't know why it is returning FALSE.
