    Help with code compile error message.

    Hi all,

    I am very new to programming and VBA so absolutely any help is greatly appreciated. I am trying to fix this code and I cannot find where the error is. Whenever I try to run it, I get a message saying "Compile error: Variable not defined"

    Option Explicit
    Sub ChipmunkToss()

    Dim Dale As Single, Theo as Single
    Dale = 11.1
    Theo = 31.3
    MsgBox Dale1 + Theo1
    End Sub


    Thank you in advance for any help!

    Single means WHOLE # ONLY. No decimal points. Try 11 + 31 instead

    What?

    Single means Single Precision and has decimals

    The problem here is that @AndrewDz is declaring Dale and Theo but he is using Dale1 and Theo1 in the MsgBox

    Re: Help with code compile error message.

    Your problem is highlighted in Red
    Code:
    Option Explicit
    Sub ChipmunkToss()
    
    Dim Dale As Single, Theo as Single
    Dale = 11.1
    Theo = 31.3
    MsgBox Dale1 + Theo1
    End Sub
    Dale1 and Theo1 do not exist

    Edit: I see that jggtz pointed this out above also
