From: Minitman on 26 May 2010 18:40 Greetings, I have a cell formula that is damaged each time I run a delete to remove excess rows before a paste & copy. this formula links to a cell that is always deleted. So I am trying to repair this formula at the end of each cycle. Here is the correct formula: =IF(A11="Proximates","Click","") Here is the same formula after the delete: =IF(#REF!="Proximates","Click","") I tried to fix this in the code that does the finale copy & paste with this: Range("B2").Formula = "=IF(A11=" & Chr(34) & "Proximates" & _ Chr(34) & "," & Chr(34) & "Click" & Chr(34) & "," & Chr(34) _ & " & Chr(34) & ")" (B2 is where this formula is sitting) Debug did not like the syntax!!! Anyone have any ideas, thoughts or suggestions? Any help is appreciated. -Minitman From: JLGWhiz on 26 May 2010 19:03 This will put the fromula in the cell. Range("B2").Formula = "=IF(All=""Proximities"",""Click"","""")" "Minitman" wrote in message news:do8rv55snr6oklopsdt1hr28nt6vetq5lt(a)4ax.com...> Greetings, > > I have a cell formula that is damaged each time I run a delete to > remove excess rows before a paste & copy. this formula links to a > cell that is always deleted.

You both come up with a correct (and identical) solution that works. Again, thank you both very much. -Minitman On Wed, 26 May 2010 16:23:31 -0700, Gord Dibben wrote: >Range("B2").Formula = "=IF(A11=""Proximates"",""Click"","""")" > > >Gord Dibben MS Excel MVP > >On Wed, 26 May 2010 17:40:35 -0500, Minitman >wrote: > >>Greetings, >> >>I have a cell formula that is damaged each time I run a delete to >>remove excess rows before a paste & copy. this formula links to a >>cell that is always deleted.

I would look at a re-design of your sheet so's you don't have to rebuild the formula.
