Answer: WorksheetFunction.Left problem
The formula you provided is using the `WorksheetFunction.Left` method to extract the leftmost 9 characters from a cell in the first column of a worksheet.
To make this formula work, you need to ensure that the `variable` variable is properly defined and that the cell reference in the formula is valid. Here's an example of how you can modify the formula to extract the leftmost 9 characters from cell A1:
In this example, the `variable` variable is set to 1, which means the formula will extract the leftmost 9 characters from cell A1. If you want to extract from a different cell, simply change the value of the `variable` variable to the row number of the cell you want to extract from. Note that if the cell you are trying to extract from contains less than 9 characters, the formula will return an error. You may want to add some error handling to your code to handle this scenario.

WorksheetFunction.Left problem
Since the same function is available with VBScript you can use it directly.

Using the string function Left$ is faster and that may be important if it is

VBA includes Left as a builtin function. Hence there is no reason for it also to be included in the WorksheetFunction object. You can discover this by looking at the prompts that occur when you type commands in VBA; using the object browser; or using the HELP facility. Instead, try: Left(Cells(variable , 1 ) ,9) ron
