# Using Relative Reference in a Formula

1. ## Using Relative Reference in a Formula

I am having trouble using a formula. Here is the formula I am trying to make
work: ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=ROUND(RC[-1]*Cell A1".

The "Cell A1" is the cell that I want to reference. This formula will be
used in mulitiple rows but it will always look for the value of cell A1. The
problem is that it will not let me mix both relative and absolute references
in the formula.

I guess that I could also assign a variable with the value of cell A1 and
use that in the formula. But I don't know how to do that either.
Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks

If you want to reference cell B3, enter:
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=ROUND(RC[-1]*R3C2"

R3C2 is an absolutre reference to cell \$B\$3

Thanks...but I still can't get it to work.

Here is my formula: ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=ROUND(RC[-1]*R3C2)"

So I should get the value in cell B3, right? I have a value there. When I
run it I get an Application or Object Defined Error.

What do you think I am doing wrong?

Thanks again.

4. It looks to me that you're missing what digit it is to round to.
Try this:
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=ROUND(RC[-1]*R3C2,0)"

where 0 is the digit to be rounded to.
