Errors Object [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]


Represents the various spreadsheet errors for a range.

Using the Errors object

Use the Errors property of the Range collection to return an Errors object.

Once an Errors object is returned, you can use the Value property of the Error object to check for particular error-checking conditions. The following example places a number as text in cell A1 and then notifies the user when the value of cell A1 contains a number as text.

Sub ErrorValue()

    ' Place a number written as text in cell A1.
    Range("A1").Formula = "'1"

    If Range("A1").Errors.Item(xlNumberAsText).Value = True Then
        MsgBox "Cell A1 has a number as text."
        MsgBox "Cell A1 is a number."
    End If

End Sub
