Hello,

I have an error on a line of my VBA where I am trying to find specials characters. This is the line below. It is not working with the "&" and another Chr, and i do not know why
strPatt = Chr(34) & Chr(64)

In the original code it was like this :
VBA Code:
'strPatt = "[^a-z,.;:#$%()@" & Chr(34) & "]" 'change pattern as needed

Thanks for the help

VBA Code:
Sub SpecialChar()
Dim strPatt As String
Dim cel As Range
Dim regEx As Object
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

'strPatt = "[^a-z,.;:#$%()@" & Chr(34) & "]" 'change pattern as needed
'strPatt = "/ | ! @ # , ; ^ * + - = \ ? < > [ ] { } ’ " & Chr(132) & Chr(34) & Chr(147) & Chr(148) 'change pattern as needed
'strPatt = "/|!@#,;^*+-=\?<>[]{}’"
'strPatt = "[/|!@#,;^*+-\,.;:#$%()@" & Chr(63) & "]" 'change pattern as needed
strPatt = Chr(34) & Chr(64) 'change pattern as needed

'strPatt = Chr(47) & Chr(124) & Chr(33) & Chr(64) & Chr(35) & Chr(44) & Chr(59) & Chr(94) & Chr(42) & Chr(43) & Chr(45) & Chr(61) & Chr(92) & Chr(63) & Chr(60) & Chr(62) & Chr(34) & Chr(91) & Chr(93) & Chr(123) & Chr(125) & Chr(146)

'/|!@#,;^*+-=\?< > "[]{}’

Set regEx = CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp")

    With regEx
        .Global = True
        .MultiLine = True
        .IgnoreCase = True
        .Pattern = strPatt
    End With

    For Each cel In Range("A2:A" & Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).row).Cells 'change column as needed
        If regEx.Test(cel.Text) Then
            cel.Interior.Color = vbRed
        End If
    Next cel
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)
