here i have a extremely simple question: how to write codes that can

count the sum of a column?

i've tried a circular counter but the program alwayse reported a

mismatch error.

My original code is:

Dim i as long

k = 0

For i = 2 to 100

k = k + thisworkbook.worksheets("sheet1").cells(1, i)

next i

I think you can just do something like

x = Sum(A1:A100)

not sure on the exact syntax to replace the 100 with an 'i' though.

In the past, I have typically had a problem with using the For i = 2 to 100

method, so instead, I use the following syntax.

Do While ActiveCell.Value <> ""

Perform calculation steps

Loop

is it a type mismatch between the data and the long data type?

Try declaring i as a double instead maybe?

I"ve tried the methods suggested by all of you

but it didn't help.

first of all, I declared i and k as double but still got mismatch

error.

secondly, I used the function sum(A2:A100), but it was reported that

there was a syntax error.

lastly, I wanna calculate the sums of the columns respectively, I'm

afraid using Do while activecell.value <>"" would result in a sum of

all of the cells in the worksheet.

So, I haven't had my problem resolved. But I appreciate all the

suggestions. Any more leads?

sorry I couldn;t help, still a bit new at this myself.

If you're still getting a mismatch, then mayb see if something like

this works:

Dim i as Double

dim k as Double

k = 0

For i = 2 to 100

if isNumeric(k + thisworkbook.worksheets("sheet1").cells(1, i)) then

k = k + thisworkbook.worksheets("sheet1").cells(1, i)

end if

next i

If IsNumeric(thisworkbook.worksheets("sheet1").cells(1,i)) Then

...

not as written below.

How about this,

Dim dblSum As Double

' Sum column A of Sheet1 in thisworkbook

dblSum =

Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Columns(1))

I think the Mismatch error is caused by a cell containing text instead

of a number.

Also your original code loops across the columns in row 1

.cells(1, i)

whereas the question suggests you want to move down the rows in a column.
