How to return a result from a VBA function

How do I return a result from a function?

For example:

Public Function test() As Integer
    return 1
End Function

This gives a compile error.

How do I make this function return an integer?

You must associate the value with the name of your function for non-object return types, like in:

Public Function test() As Integer
    test = 1
End Function

Example usage:

Dim i As Integer
i = test()

If the function returns an Object type, then you must use the Set keyword like this:

Public Function testRange() As Range
    Set testRange = Range("A1")
End Function

Example usage:

Dim r As Range
Set r = testRange()

Keep in mind that the execution of your function is not stopped by giving a return value to the function name. Exit Function must be stated specifically if you want to leave the function. For instance:

Function test(ByVal justReturnOne As Boolean) As Integer
    If justReturnOne Then
        test = 1
        Exit Function
    End If
    'more code...
    test = 2
End Function
