Default Excel Macro: Type mismatch (Error 13)

I am using Microsoft Excel 2010.

Several years ago, Claus Busch wrote the following macro for me:

Sub roundSelection()
Dim pctChange As Double
Dim Cell As Range
pctChange = Range("pctChange")
For Each Cell In Selection
Cell = WorksheetFunction.Round(Cell * (1 + pctChange), 2)
Next Cell
End Sub

When I try to run it now, I get "Run-time error '13': Type
mismatch". The problem seems to be this line of code:

Cell = WorksheetFunction.Round(Cell * (1 + pctChange), 2)

...but I don't know how to fix it as I am no expert with macros!

The macro should work like this: If one of the worksheet tabs has a
box named "pctChange" and a % value underneath that box, it should
apply the % value to all the worksheet boxes in that tab that are
formatted as currency (i.e. $ - U.S. Dollars in my case).

I should be able to specify a different "pctChange" value for each
worksheet tab and then run the macro.

Can anybody please help? I'm willing to post the spreadsheet
somewhere, if that helps.


Are any of the selected cells non-numeric?

The way I remember how to run the macro (it has been many years!!), I
did not have to select any cells. The macro would look for cells that
are formatted as currency (like U.S. Dollar) and apply the value
specified by the "pctChange" variable.

It would be impractical for me to select all cells in a tab that are
formatted as currency as I have such values spread out everywhere.

Perhaps the macro, as shown above, doesn't do what I am saying it
should do. Several years have passed since the last time I ran it...
If so, would it be possible for somebody to write a macro the way I
want it now?
