Overflow error, need help

I have been writing a macro that does the exact same thing, it adds
row and calculates the previous row divided by the bottom of th
previous row, which is a total. This gives the percentage of th
total. This all worked fine.
Then I had to add two rows and take the percentage of that. I made
new row that was the addition of the two previous rows. That work
fine, but now the maco that was working on all the other rows, won
work on the new row. It gives me an overflow error and I cant figur
out why... any suggestions?

Here is a snippet of my macro. The green text is the part that works.
The blue text is the addition part, which also works but could b
leading to the overflow. The yellow part is the area that does no
work, and the red is where the overflow is specifically occuring:

Columns("ac:ac").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight

Dim varTotal, var7, var8
var7 = Range("ac2")
var8 = Range("ab1").Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select
ReportLastRow = ActiveCell.Row
varTotal = var7 / var8
Range("ac2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
varTotal

Set r = Range("ab1").End(xlDown)
s = r.AddressLocal(True, True, xlR1C1)
For i = 1 To r.Row
Range("ac2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1] / " & s
Next i
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) Then Exit Sub
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).End(xlDown).Offset(0
1)).FillDown


Columns("af:af").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("Af1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "FIX & COM"
Range("af2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1]+RC[-2]"
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) Then Exit Sub
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).End(xlDown).Offset(0
1)).FillDown
Columns("ag:ag").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight

Dim blahTotal, var9, var10

var7 = Range("ag2")
var8 = Range("af1").Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select
ReportLastRow = ActiveCell.Row
blahTotal = var9 / var10
Range("ag2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
blahTotal

Set r = Range("af1").End(xlDown)
s = r.AddressLocal(True, True, xlR1C1)
For i = 1 To r.Row
Range("ag2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1] / " & s
Next i
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) Then Exit Sub
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).End(xlDown).Offset(0
1)).FillDow

Are you doing this in VBScript ?
If not, declare the data types of your variables. So what do expect the
value of var7 to be:
Dim varTotal, var7, var8
var7 = Range("ac2")
Is a range object, the cell value ?
(Ok, there's no Set so you can tell it does not involve objects, but...)

Also, what value do you expect for var8 here:
var8 = Range("ab1").Select
(I get a value of var8=True)
So what do you expect the result to be here:
varTotal = var7 / var8=Range("AC2").Value/-1
