I'm trying to get this Evaluate macro to function properly. I'm not very familiar with programming macros, only for very basic tasks. The macro comes from the book "Excel by Example: A Microsoft® Excel Cookbook for Electronics Engineers" by Aubrey Kagan. The macro is suppose to evaluate, based on the rest of the workbook, a resistor's value based on a 4 band resistor. I am having errors when trying to run the macro and I would also like to know how to get the macro to evaluate 5 and 6 band resistors. The rest of the workbook is already setup to enter 4, 5, and 6 band resistors, it's just that the Evaluate macro is not setup for 5 and 6 band resistors and the current Evaluate macro is giving me problems. The code came straight out of the book. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The error I get is **Compile Error: Case Without Select Case **and the code is below.

Thanks,

Matt
