a glimpse of their usefulness. Unfortunately, I work almost exclusively

from within VBA, vice entering a formula on the worksheet. I grabbed (I

think!!) how to enter an array formula into the worksheet using VBA. But

somehow it's slipping past me how to use an array formula entirely within

VBA code.

For example, from John Walkenbach's book "Excel 2000 Formulas", he gives an

array formula for determining if a range contains a particular value. In

his example, a single cell is named "TheName", and a 5-column array of names

is named "NameList". His array formula is {=IF(OR(TheName=NameList),

"Found", "Not Found")}.

If I want to do something like this entirely within VBA, then TheName is

likely to be a variable "x" and NameList an array "arr1". And I do not want

to display text in a cell, but do this if true, do that if false. Am I

barking up the wrong tree on this? Or is there just a simple thing I'm

missing?
