I read the previous post in the forum to check data type when this occurs. All of the data is clearly numerical and should not be the problem. I am working with about 14,000 observarations and keep getting this error. Is it because there are to many observations? There is no difference in the number of observations per variable so this is also not the problem. Please let me know how to fix this.
The type mismatch error is normally due to copied data being formatted as text rather than numbers. This can happen for a number of reasons; however there are some solutions.
The simplest solution is to do a find and replace (CTRL+H) on apostrophies (i.e. ') for nothing. Otherwise one can import data using the Data >> Import External Data function from the Excel menu to ensure that values arte imported in numeric format.
I am getting this error in a small batch of data (six independent variables, one dependent, sample size of 4), even though I have entered the data by hand as numbers. I have tried confirming that the data in all cells is in number format by highlighting, then bringing up 'format cells' and formatting all as 'numbers.' Nothing was copied and pasted.
Any ideas? Could it relate somehow to the small sample size?
I am also getting a Run-Time Error '13' Type Mismatch in my code. I wrote a code that swops a name into reverse Like accounts to untsacco. When do for one cell the code works perfectly but I need to select a range from A1:A200.
When I do that thats when i get the mismatch Error, Please assist, here is my code
Sub Macro1() Dim strPassword, Part1, Part2, Part3 As String Dim xPos As String Dim xLen As Integer
strPassword = Range("A1").Value
xLen = Len(strPassword)
xPos = xLen / 2
If xLen Mod 2 <> 1 Then Part1 = Mid(strPassword, xPos + 1, xPos) Part2 = "" Part3 = Mid(strPassword, 1, xPos) Else Part1 = Mid(strPassword, xPos + 2, xPos) Part2 = Mid(strPassword, xPos + 1, 1) Part3 = Mid(strPassword, 1, xPos) End If
Hi, I get this message too. I have tried adjusting the text / number format. I have tried copying and manually inputting the data. I have tried using just a few data values, and all of them (approx. 200) but to no avail. When I click run regression the computer takes ages to determine the run time message, and when I click end, it has changed the number of observations from its original value to 59997 after having put 0's in all the rows beyond the data. I can't understand why this might be happening. Please help. Thanks, Jack
In this case, the program has attempted to correct non numerical or empty input cells. If it has added zeros below the input data, then it has encountered a problem locating the input data. Have you added rows or columns within the Input sheet?
Hi, Thanks for your help. No I haven't added columns or rows into the spreadsheet, just input the data. I have redownloaded the spreadsheet to check that I hadn't done it previously, and this is still the case. Any more ideas? Thanks.
After some testing, we came across a similar error when one or more independent variables have no data. If titles are entered for independent variables, the program assumes that data exists beneath it. It then attempts look for empty or non-numeric input to exclude before running the analysis. Since no data exists, it continues this process all the way to the last row of the worksheet.
We have updated the download version to check for missing variable data in order to resolve this issue.
Thanks. I'm not sure what solved it, as I downloaded the new version first, but I think it may have been as simple as that I was deleting the data in the third example column, but not the title for it. Thanks again.
