Questions and Answers on Excel Macros
Topic: Are "If" statements and "Select Case" case sensitive?
I have an "If" statement that reads like this: If Activecell.Value="Yes" then. Some people answer yes, YES or other combinations of capital and lower case letters. How can I solve this problem?
The first and easy solution is to use a drop-down list in the cell so that users can choose an answer. The other solution is this: If Ucase(Activecell.Value)="YES" then or If Lcase(Activecell.Value)="yes" then. The same rules and solutions apply to the powerful If statement called Select Case that you will use when you have multiple conditions.
