Hi,

i have been trying to handle the error in vba for last two days and have tried all the possible option i know but unfortunately not got rid of this error till now. below is the code-

if not iserror(Application.WorksheetFunction.Rank(Cells(a, 24), Range("x:x"))) then

Activecell.value = Application.WorksheetFunction.Rank(Cells(a, 24), Range("x:x"))

else

activecell.value = "NA"

end if

i just want rank value in Activecell and if there is any error or cell is blank in corosponding X column, function should return "NA" for this cell. but given code generates error - "Run time error 1004"

"Unable to get the rank property of the worksheetFunction class"

whenever it encounters a blank cell, otherwise it's working fine.

Please help.........

Thanks

Try this:

Code:
    Err.Clear
    On Error Resume Next
    ActiveCell.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.Rank(Cells(a, 24), Range("x:x"))
    If Err.Number > 0 Then
        ActiveCell.Value = "NA"
    End If
    On Error GoTo 0
Hope it helps
Ryan

Thanks Ryan,

It's working like a charm,

would you please explain why WorksheetFunction.IsError/Iserr or all other error hanling options could not work here.

and why do we need multiple error handler for one line code.

thanks agian for your kind help

When "Application.WorksheetFunction.Rank" returns an error you get an immediate run time error and your code crashes. You have to avoid this crash
by using:
On Error Resume Next

To actually pick up that an error occurred you use Err.Number.

An alternative approach would be as follows:
Code:
    On Error GoTo ErrOccurred
    ActiveCell.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction.Rank(Cells(a, 24), Range("x:x"))
    GoTo NoErr
ErrOccurred:
    ActiveCell.Value = "NA"
NoErr:
    rest of code
