    Re: Comments

    Hi,

    Where have you placed the comment?

    If it's in a macro just remove the ' sign before the commented line.

    Re: Comments

    Assuming the comment (A1 in ex.) has line breaks you can Split the comment accordingly and use the (2) item [0 based Array], eg:

    you may want to add Error handler accordingly

    Re: Extract Line From Comment

    Thank you DonkeyOte, I know that is what I wanted.
    I have written as follows:

    Then I get the message:

    "Object variable or with block not set"

    Can you help me with that please and thank you

    Re: Extract Line From Comment

    Vic, please always encase VBA code with CODE tags (per Forum Rules)

    You would get the error you describe if the ActiveCell does not contain a Comment - this was the point I was making re: adding an appropriate handler.

    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    with the above - if the cell is comment-less or contains fewer than three distinct lines then RmNo variable will be a Null string

    Obviously when you refer to "comment" I have assumed you're referring to cell comments and not just a text string within the cell itself.
