In VBA I need to set a True or False value based on values in column E.
Is there a way to tell Excel to set ColumnDoesNotHaveZero = True?  If there are no zeros in that column.
Column E can have any value in it, except a "0", if there is a zero? set ColumnDoesNotHaveZero = False
Please advise and thanks.

I'd say, set Worksheet_Change event, and inside, have it check only if column E was edited, enumerate every value of the column E, based on own limit, or UsedRange, and then set the ColumnDoesNotHaveZero value).

Worksheet is a static export from an extract.  Just need to check for it.

Set Flag based on WorksheetFunction.COUNTIF($E:$E,0)

If Count is 0 - Flag = True; If Count >0 - Flag = False

Then simple VBA code will do?

Sub test()

Dim ColumnDoesNotHaveZero As Boolean

ColumnDoesNotHaveZero = True

Count = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

For i = 1 To Count Step 1
    If ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 5).Value = 0 Then
        ColumnDoesNotHaveZero = False
    End If
Next

MsgBox ColumnDoesNotHaveZero

End Sub
