From: Philosophaie on 25 Mar 2010 19:58 Neither of these cases work. I just get a "Type mismatch" error. Dim deg(10), min(10), sec(10), DEGt(10) as Double deg(h) = CDbl(.Cells(2 + h, 3)) min(h) = CDbl(.Cells(2 + h, 4)) sec(h) = CDbl(.Cells(2 + h, 5)) DEGt(h) = deg(h) + min(h))/ 60 + sec(h) / 3600 or deg(h) = .Cells(2 + h, 3) min(h) = .Cells(2 + h, 4) sec(h) = .Cells(2 + h, 5)) DEGt(h) = CDbl(deg(h)) + CDbl(min(h)) / 60 + CDbl(sec(h)) / 3600 From: Rick Rothstein on 25 Mar 2010 20:10 I'm guessing "h" is a loop variable... what values does it iterate over? Also, **exactly** what is in your cells that you are trying to convert (show us an example or two)? Also, I see a "dot" in front of the Cells call... what is it having the cell refer back to? -- Rick (MVP - Excel) "Philosophaie" wrote in message news:23889DEA-C7AC-4FFC-A9C3-EA63E1CE8DCA(a)microsoft.com...> Neither of these cases work.

You showed this in your code... > Dim deg(10), min(10), sec(10), DEGt(10) as Double and you just told me this... > for h = 1 to 23 so when "h" hits 11, there will be a problem as your array is not big enough to hold that index value (but I would not expect a "Type Mismatch" error to be occurring for it). Perhaps if you post all of your code (copy/paste it, don't retype it as I see some mistyping in the code you posted originally). -- Rick (MVP - Excel) "Philosophaie" wrote in message news:302FD2FA-1010-4ED4-9EA8-34B30BF9C670(a)microsoft.com...> for h = 1 to 23 > ... > next h > > deg(1)=20 > min(1)=45 > sec(1)=21 > DEGt(1)=20.755833333  |  Pages: 1 Prev: formulas containing constantsNext: Picture Form Help
