In Depth Information
You can also write this function without using an If-Then-Else construct. In the following
function, the expression to the right of the equal sign returns either TRUE or FALSE — and this
value is returned by the function:
CELLISHIDDEN = cell.EntireRow.Hidden Or _
The Set keyword
An important concept in VBA is the ability to create a new Range object and assign it to a
variable — more specifically, an object variable. You do so by using the Set keyword. The following
statement creates an object variable named MyRange :
Set MyRange = Range(“A1:A10”)
After the statement executes, you can use the MyRange variable in your code in place of the
actual range reference. Examples in subsequent sections help to clarify this concept.
Creating a Range object is not the same as creating a named range. In other words, you
can’t use the name of a Range object in your worksheet formulas.
The Intersect function
The Intersect function returns a range that consists of the intersection of two other ranges.
For example, consider the two ranges selected in Figure 24-2. These ranges, D3:D10 and B5:F5,
contain one cell in common (D5). In other words, D5 is the intersection of D3:D10 and B5:F5.
The following Function procedure accepts two range arguments and returns the count of the
number of cells that the ranges have in common:
Function CELLSINCOMMON(rng1, rng2)
Dim CommonCells As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set CommonCells = Intersect(rng1, rng2)
If Err.Number = 0 Then
CELLSINCOMMON = CommonCells.CountLarge
CELLSINCOMMON = 0
