Hi All
Hope some can help with this problem.
I have the following formula in a spreadsheet:
=IF(ISERROR(IF(A4="","",VLOOKUP(A4,Structure!$A$2:$C$146,3,FALSE)))=TRUE,"",IF(A4="","",VLOOKUP(A4,Structure!$A$2:$C$146,3,FALSE)))

the formula works fine.
Now i have created a formula that manipulates data on a spreadsheet, but what i need is how to make a macro enter this formula into a cell.
If i can help it i would rather not have the formula on the spreadsheet and use it a 'Named Formula' are there any other ways?

Regards
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

You could either say in VBA:
Code:
[A1].formula = "your formula including the equal sign"
or, you could use
Code:
Application.worksheetfunction and see if you can use that.....

Failing that, you may want to look into 'Evaluate' as I believe that can do a similar thing to what you're after.
