Hi there,

This formula works in the sheet but it won't compile in VBA due to a syntax error. Any tips? Thank you!

As it appears in the sheet: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(ADDRESS(1, COLUMN(), 4),1,"")&"$"&$A8)*(Y8/100)

As it appears in VBA: Sheets(shName).Range("C" & b + 1).Formula = "=INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(ADDRESS(1, COLUMN(), 4),1,"")&"$"&$A8)*(Y8/100)"

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

I think it has something to do with one of the $ signs but if I double quote the $ (""$"") a 1004 error pops when I run it

Hi & welcome to MrExcel.
You need to double-up on the quotes inside the formula like
VBA Code:
 Sheets(shName).Range("C" & b + 1).Formula = "=INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(ADDRESS(1, COLUMN(), 4),1,"""")&""$""&$A8)*(Y8/100)"
