Worksheet functions in Excel VBA

Worksheet functions – How to use the Excel function in VBA 

Have you ever wondered how you can use the Excel function in VBA? Worksheet functions come with help. As you know, the Excel spreadsheet offers a number of useful functions. The resource of functions that you can use in the VBA code is a bit more limited. Thanks to VBA, you can easily use some of the functions offered by Excel data sheet

These are not all available functions, but they significantly extend programming in VBA. In case you want to use the data sheet function, you can call it with a short command in any VBA code: 

Application.WorksheetFunction.worksheet_function_name

The name of the function itself has to be written with English naming. Below is an example of the use of a round function, which we know from Excel or VBA under the name ROUND(). The example contains two versions. The first version is the use of the sheet function. The second example shows the same function that the VBA code offers us. The result itself is displayed in the form of the VBA MsgBox window.

Sub WorksheetFunctionExample()

 MsgBox "Datasheet function result: " & Application.WorksheetFunction.Round(123.666, 2)
 MsgBox "VBA function result: " & Round(123.666, 2)

End Sub
