I have the following macro:

Sub test()
Dim iRow As Integer, iCol As Integer
For iCol = 7 To 9
For iRow = 16 To 279
If Cells(iRow, iCol) = "" Then
If Cells(iRow - 2, iCol) = Cells(iRow - 1, iCol) Or Cells(iRow - 2, iCol) = 0 Then
Cells(iRow, iCol) = Cells(iRow - 1, iCol)
Else
Cells(iRow, iCol) = Cells(iRow - 1, iCol) + Range("Q15")
End If
End If
Next iRow
Next iCol
End Sub


This results in an output of:

71642 19174 18888

However What I want to achieve is when any column reaches 100000, I would like to start adding onto the next smallest column, which would produce:

71642 100174 26088
71642 100174 27888
71642 100174 29688
71642 100174 31488
71642 100174 33288
71642 100174 35088
71642 100174 36888

In order to do this I think I will have to put an If statement after
For iRow = 16 to 279


The problem I have here is how do I get Excel to recognise which is the smallest of the 3 columns? I could do it in a series of If statements, but this would be very long winded. Is there a minimum/lowest command I can use?

Basically I'm looking at:

If Cells(iRow-1,iCol)>100,000 Then
ADD Q14 to the smallest value and keep the other two values the same.

Once this is done the rest of the macro should still be ok

Any info would be appreciated.

Cheers

Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

I think I may have a solution to my problem. I will insert a series of 3 IfAnd statements;

For example
If Cell(20,7)<Cell(20,8) And Cell(20,7)<Cell(20,9) Then
Cell (21,7)=Cell(20,7)+Range("Q15")

Only problem is I can't figure out how to combine If And statements in my macro

Any pointers? ?

Cheers

John
