Select Case


Instead of multiple If Then statements in Excel VBA, you can use the Select Case structure.


Select Case in Excel VBA

Place a command button on your worksheet and add the following code lines:

1. First, declare two variables. One variable of type Integer named score and one variable of type String named result.

Dim score As Integer, result As String

2. We initialize the variable score with the value of cell A1.

score = Range("A1").Value

3. Add the Select Case structure.

Select Case score
    Case Is >= 80
        result = "very good"
    Case Is >= 70
        result = "good"
    Case Is >= 60
        result = "sufficient"
    Case Else
        result = "insufficient"
End Select

Explanation: Excel VBA uses the value of the variable score to test each subsequent Case statement to see if the code under the Case statement should be executed.

4. Write the value of the variable result to cell B1.

Range("B1").Value = result

5. Test the program.

Result when you click the command button on the sheet:

Select Case Result

Note: Excel VBA executes the code under the second Case statement for all values greater than or equal to 70 and less than 80.
