how to capture that formula error in vba worksheet change code?

thank you
Try this:

Private Sub Workbook_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)
If Application.WorksheetFunction.IsErr(Target) Then
    Debug.Print "There is an error"
End If

End Sub

Open in new window

You can replace the debug.print statement with whatever you want to do to capture (e.g., show a message box, enter a value in another cell).

Or you may try this....

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.CountLarge > 1 Then Exit Sub
If IsError(Target) Then
   MsgBox "The cell content produced an error.", vbExclamation, "Error!"
   Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
   Target.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
End If
End Sub
