Hi experts,

I try to do something and need to have a range as input in VBA function. But when I use the function, it always gives me an error, what could be wrong.

Function getSize(arr)
    rowSize = UBound(arr, 1) - LBound(arr, 1) + 1
    colSize = UBound(arr, 2) - LBound(arr, 2) + 1
    MsgBox ("input is a " & TypeName(arr) & "with size of " & rowSize & " X " & colSize & ".")    
End Function

Please take a look.

Arr is not an array, but a range, so you can not use UBound and LBound.

2 options

Load the range into an array like this
Function getSize(arrIn)
    arr = arrIn
    rowSize = UBound(arr, 1) - LBound(arr, 1) + 1
    colSize = UBound(arr, 2) - LBound(arr, 2) + 1
    MsgBox ("input is a " & TypeName(arrIn) & "with size of " & rowSize & " X " & colSize & ".")
End Function

Open in new window


Or get the size directly on the range like this
Function getSize(arr As Range)
    Dim rowSize As Long, colSize As Long
    rowSize = arr.Rows.Count
    colSize = arr.Columns.Count
    MsgBox ("input is a " & TypeName(arr) & " with size of " & rowSize & " X " & colSize & ".")
End Function

Open in new window
