excel – "User-defined type not defined" for simple custom type

Posted by: admin March 9, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

In Excel 2007 I have the following very simple code in VBA:

Public Type specType
    sb As Long
End Type


Private Sub MyButton_Click()
    Dim spec As specType

    '...
End Sub

When the button is clicked, i get a “User-defined type not defined” Error on the “Dim spec As specType” line… why? Do I have to move my user defined types to a special location?

How to&Answers:

Turns out Types have to be defined before any functions in the module, otherwise they simply won’t be recognized (without giving you an error).
