Hello,





I have this piece of code:
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-10],Position!R2C1:R50C2,2,FALSE)"

However, I want to make Position!R2C1:R50C2 a variable. Meaning, this range may not always be the same row and column. I want it to be something like a variable range (ie, 'Range(Range("A2").End(xlDown), Range("A2").End(xlToRight))' for Position worksheet.

I can't get it to work. Please help.

You mean some thing like this

lastrow = cells(rows.count, "A").end(xlup).row
lastcol =cells(1, columns.count).end(xltoleft).column
src = "R2C1:R" & lastrow & "C" & lastcol
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=VLOOKUP(RC[-10],Position!" & src & ",2,FALSE)"

there was? this is what i did and it worked fine..
Dim src As String
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Sheets("Position")

lastRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
lastColumn = ws.Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
src = "R1C1:R" & lastRow & "C" & lastColumn

ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
"=VLOOKUP(RC[-10],Position!" & src & ",2,FALSE)"

In the earlier code, I had "=VLOOKUP(RC[-10],Position!" & srs & ",2,FALSE)"
but the variable should have been (as you correctly used) src
