# Use Left, or , and together in VBA Macro

Madam/Sir,

I have to check in Column A whether any number starts with 113 or 114 and the corresponding value for that cell in Column B is positive or negative and if it is negative, then in Column C against that cell enter value as A. Otherwise Column C should be blank.

I wrote the macro given below, but it is not working.

Sub Example() Dim c As Range For Each c In Range("a1:a5") For Each d In Range("b1:b5") For Each e In Range("c1:c5") If c.Value = "" Then e.Value = "" Else If ((Left(c.Value, 3) = 113 Or Left(c.Value, 3) = 114)) And sgn (d.Value) = -1 Then e.Value = "A" End If End If Next Next Next End Sub

Can anybody help please.

Thanks in advance……

Hi, Here is the updated VBA Macro fro your requirement:

In this macro, we are looping through from 1 to 5. And Checking if A1 is starts with 113 or 114, if B1 is a negative value.

If this meets the condition we are printing letter “A” in C1 other wise Blank.

The loop will continue check the A2,A3..up to A5.

Sub VBAF1_CheckCellsIfMeetsConditions() Dim c As Range 'Loop through From Row 1 to 5 For iCntr = 1 To 5 'Check if its meeting the criterian If (Left(Range("A" & iCntr), 3) = 113 Or Left(Range("A" & iCntr), 3) = 114) And Range("B" & iCntr) < 0 Then Range("C" & iCntr) = "A" 'Enter A if meets Else Range("C" & iCntr) = "" 'Other wise Blank End If Next End Sub

Thanks!

Thanks for the detailed and informative answer………
