    Explanation of the Run-time error '6': Overflow Error

    I am trying to debug a macro that I didn't write and I keep getting this error, "Run-time error '6': Overflow". Can someone explain to me a little bit more on what could be causing it?
    Thank You

    It means that the code is trying to store a value larger than the variable type accommodates. For example, Integer is a 32-bit data type that stores whole numbers between -32768 and 32767.
