Basic UDF Question

  Asked By: Elliott    Date: Dec 19    Category: MS Office    Views: 1464

Very basic question about UDF's.

Could someone show me sample code and worksheet formula that accepts a
cell range as input and returns some processed result?

For example, let's say I want to multiply whatever value was supplied by

Function MyFunc(r As Range) As String ' Is "r as Range" correct?
MyFunc = 5 ' * something - times what?
End Function

And also, what exactly do I put as a formula on my worksheet? Something
=MyFunc(A1) ?

Strange - I keep getting a #NAME? error in the cell. I made sure to
Enable macros too.

Any clue?

The function  needs to be in a module or you need to change the way you
reference it.

right click the workbook's project title in the project explorer
part of the ve editor, click 'insert', then choose 'module'. Copy
the code  into the new module.
