Hi,

I'm running solver via a macro. The solver reaches the "maximum time limit" without finding a solution. The title of the window is:

"Show Trial Solution"

The message is:

"The maximum time limit was reached; continue anyway?"

The options are:

"Conintue"
"Stop"
"Help"
"Save Scenario"

How do I code in VBA such that if I get this message, I select the "stop" option?

Thanks,
hilss

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

I've written a bit about Solver and VBA here:

http://peltiertech.com/Excel/SolverVBA.html

The last procedure in the section "Avoiding Solver Reference Problems" shows code that interprets the final condition of Solver. You might be able to make use of it.

Thank you for the response... Unfortunatey, it did not address the question of how to make the solver "stop" or "continue" if the solver exceed the iteration limit.

Do you of any other source that contains such information?

Again, thank you,
hilss

Record a macro under conditions that reach the state you describe, then post the resulting code.
