I am trying to establish the column number for a cell via a user defined function. My ultimate aim is to establish offset values of named cells in row 1 of particular sheet. These values make a columnar list on another sheet.
Public Function GetCol(R As Range) As Long
x = R.Column
From within the sheet, and calling this function returns 0, although the function does calculate the correct value.
VBA is sneaky with this. Rather than a return value, what you want to do is set GetCol to the value you want to return. Add a line with GetCol = x and you should be good to go. Or you could just remove x from the function entirely.
