excel – how to fix type mismatch error?

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


Hi I have the following code:

Private Sub Search_Click()
Dim Name As String
Dim f As Range
Dim r As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim s As Integer
Dim FirstAddress As String
Dim str() As String

Name = surname.Value

With ws
Set f = Range("A:A").Find(what:=Name, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not f Is Nothing Then
With Me
    firstname.Value = f.Offset(0, 1).Value
    tod.Value = f.Offset(0, 2).Value
    program.Value = f.Offset(0, 3).Value
    email.Value = f.Offset(0, 4).Text

    SetCheckBoxes f.Offset(0, 5) '<<< replaces code below

    officenumber.Value = f.Offset(0, 6).Text
    cellnumber.Value = f.Offset(0, 7).Text
    r = f.Row '<<<<<<<<< using this to locate the row of "found"
End With
        FirstAddress = f.Address
    s = s + 1
    Set f = Range("A:A").findnext(f)
            Loop While Not f Is Nothing And f.Address <> FirstAddress
    If s > 1 Then
       Select Case MsgBox("There are " & s & " instances of " & Name, vbOKCancel Or vbExclamation Or vbDefaultButton1, "Multiple entries")

       Case vbOK
       Case vbCancel

       End Select

    End If

Else: MsgBox Name & "Not Listed"

End If

End With

End Sub

and i want to use an update button:

private Sub update_Click()

Dim Name As String
Dim f As Range
Dim ws As Worksheet

With ws
Set f = .Cells(r, 1)  '<<<<<<<<<<<<< Mismatch type error

    f.Value = surname.Value
    f.Offset(0, 1).Value = firstname.Value
    f.Offset(0, 2).Value = tod.Value
    f.Offset(0, 3).Value = program.Value
    f.Offset(0, 4).Value = email.Value
    f.Offset(0, 5).Value = GetCheckBoxes
    f.Offset(0, 6).Value = officenumber.Value
    f.Offset(0, 7).Value = cellnumber.Value

End With
End Sub

so i want to locate the row of the found cell and replace all the cells to whatever is written in the textbox (updating the previous infomration with new information) – however i get an error on set f = .cells(r,1) how can i fix this?

How to&Answers:

Try to use global variable r: instead declaring Dim r As Long in Private Sub Search_Click(), use Public r As Long outside all functions in the very top of module :

Public r As Long

Public Sub Search_Click()
'your code
End Sub

Public Sub update_Click()
'your code
End Sub

Now, after calling Search_Click r would be inizialized and then you could call update_Click.

P.S. Don’t forget to remove Dim r As Long from Private Sub Search_Click().

BTW, in your update_Click and Search_Click subs you haven’t initialized ws variable: Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1"). After adding this line change Range("A:A") to .Range("A:A") in Search_Click
