Calculation of slope in VBA


I tried to calculate a slope in VBA using this:
Sub DeactivationRates()

Dim xL As Range

Dim yL As Range

Dim intSlopeL As Integer

Set xL = Range("B14:B76")

Set yL = Range("C14:C76")

intSlopeL = Application.WorksheetFunction.Slope(yL, xL)

Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B1").Value = intSlopeL

End Sub

I always get the same value of 0.000. Can you help?



RE: Calculation of slope in VBA

Hi Pierre

Thanks for your question

The first thing that strikes me is that you have declared intslopeL as an integer. As the slope of a line is nearly always a decimal less than 1, this would mean the value will always b e returned to the nearest integer. Try using single as the variable type and see if that helps
