Dear Great Minds of Excel,

Is there a way to return the format of a column, using vba, via a message box. I have tried GetFormat() but no luck.


Thanks in advance.

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
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.

How about something like:
Code:
MsgBox Range("A1").NumberFormat

Joe4,


Thanks a lot.

I did it this way instead.

Code:
ColFmt01 = Worksheets("WhichPage").Columns(1).NumberFormat
This allowed me to later use vba to format a column in a vba generated report. Yours helped push me in the right direction. Now on to the next challenge.
