# VBA SGN Function (Syntax + Example)

Contents

The VBA SGN function is listed under the math category of VBA functions. When you use it in a VBA code, it returns the arithmetic sign of an integer. In simple words, it returns +1 for a positive number, -1 for a negative number, and 0 for a zero.

Sgn(Number)

## Arguments

• Number: An integer to specify the number that you want the arithmetic sign of.

## Example

To practically understand how to use the VBA SGN function, you need to go through the below example where we have written a vba code by using it:

``````Sub example_SGN()
Range("B1").Value = Sgn(Range("A1"))
End Sub``````

In the above code, we have used the SGN to get the arithmetic sign and it has returned 1 as we have a positive number in cell A1.

## Notes

• If the value specified is a value other than a number or a number that can’t be recognized as a number, VBA will return the run-time 13 error.
