Hi

You use Set when you want to assign an object reference to a variable eg:

Code:
Dim rng As Range
 
Set rng = Range("A1:A100")  'object reference
You use Let (or omit it altogether) when assigning a simple scalar value to a variable eg:

Code:
Dim lng As Long
 
Let lng = 100
 
'equiavlent to:
 
lng = 100
