Method Of Range Class Failed
i just figured out that when you change sheets too often in VBA and get an "Activate Method Of Range Class Failed" or a "Select Method Of Range Class Failed" etc, simply retype the sheets command before it
for example :
this code in VBA, if used too often or the mentioned sheet is not the currently selected sheet in a Sub, will cause errors, and to correct this, simply type
this makes sure that the sheet is selected before running any other range/sheet type commands.

Set rngData = wksData.UsedRange

It fails on the line highlighted in red, and from searches on this forum and google I think I need to specify more exactly which sheet it is. something like wksdata.SpecialCells.... but this doesn't work.

Select Method Class Range Failed
I have created a spreadsheet that is 38mb and needed to size it down. I recorded the following macro to do this. This essentialy jut copies the top line of the relevant columns on each page and then copies the formulas down, calculates, and then pastes just the values of these calculations, thereby reducing the sheet to a third of its size. The macro works if I run it from the macro option on the toolbar, but when I assign it to a command button I keep getting ' select method
Pastespecial Method Of Range Class Failed
I have written some code to move data from one sheet to another. Since the from sheet has formulas, I use the PasteSpecial command. I have used code like this for years, and all the sudden, this starts breaking. And, here is the fun part, I run the code and it works sometimes. I never know when it will fail. It is so random. This is killing me. I have tried to create objRange object and assign them and it works sometime and fails others. Also, I tried adding the line Worksheets("Daily Dashboard"). Range ("C72").Select before the first PasteSpecial as to select the cell first before pasting. Then I get the "Select method of range class failed".
Lastly, I tried copying the code from behind a worksheet into a new module. The code is triggered by a button on the first worksheet. Still fails.
Private Sub cmdGetData_Click()
[Result1].Value = ""
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Worksheets("Daily Dashboard").Range("C72").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
Worksheets("Daily Dashboard").Range("E72").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
[Result1].Value = "Complete"
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Error :: PasteSpecial Method Of Range Class Failed
I found the following for something that I was searching for on the web.
My question is two fold, 1) What does the '8' mean? 2) Is there someplace that tells me what other numbers for PasteSpecial mean?
This solved a problem that I had when trying to do a PasteSpecial for Column Width. What I had been trying was the following:
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlColumnWidths, Operation:=xlNone, _
But I would get the error run time error '1004', PasteSpecial method of Range class failed.
Select Method Of Range Class Failed Error
I have a macro that opens a specified woorkbook that changes every month. There are formulas which are pasted to range I1 of the new workbook to calculate the totals on this sheet. Everytime i run the code though, I get an error that says "Select method of range class failed" and Range("I1").Select is apparently the error.

I m trying to use some simple macro recording for a command button click. I keep getting the "Select method of range class failed" error from the following code.
From reading the forum it seems to be a common mistake by newbies, couldnt work it out for myself though...my command button is located on a different sheet to where the select function must work...from the code you can see that there are around 20 sheets that need to be used from the one command button...

Run-time Error '1004' : Select Method Of Range Class Failed
I have a userform that allows the user to view, modify or delete individual records (rows) of a worksheet in a workbook. If a particular item in a record is modified, a check occurs to ensure that the values for that item remain unique. All of that works exactly the way I need. The breakdown occurs when the records are then autosorted by a the values in a particular column. After the autosort, another column of values is copied and pasted to a different worksheet within the same workbook. For this to work properly, I must have the userform open along with the worksheet containing the records. If the userform is open with any other worksheet open, I get the following VBA error message "Run-time Error '1004' : Slect method of Range class failed". I need to be able to open the userform with any worksheet active and not experience this error when the autosort, copy/paste occurs. This is the code for the user form, the module for autosort, copy/paste and checking for unue values.
This is the sub in the worksheet with the records

Method Of Worksheet Class Failed
I have a worksheet "Create Origin Zones" - sheet #17 in the array - that has 56 checkboxes.
Users can click anywhere from 1 to 56 checkboxes, and for each checkbox that is checked, I unhide a sheet "Shp Profile Tmpt", copy it after sheet #17, rename it to "Origin " + checkbox#, and give it a title based on a variable in another sheet.
Once that loop is done, I then hide the "Create Origin Zones" sheet, but the user can click a button on the new sheet to go back to the 'Create Origin Zones" sheet and add more zones by clicking more checkboxes and re-running the macro.
Problem is I get that "Run-time error '1004':Copy Method of Worksheet Class failed" when I copy too many sheets. All the solutions I saw involve saving, closing and reopening the workbook but this interrupts my loop. (It would save my workbook and close it.)
I am trying to have somewhere in my loop, say every time 20 or more checkboxes are checked, its saves, closes, reopens and continues the loop to the next checkbox and repeats the copy and paste and renaming etc.
Below is my
chkcounter = 0
shtnum = Sheets("Create Origin Zones").Index ' find sheet# of 'Create origin zones' to copy sheets after

Copy Method Of Worksheet Class Failed ..
I've developed an administrative package in Excel for an After School Care programme. Essentially, there are 57 Child Records. Each record is stored on its own sheet. There are four other sheets in the workbook: three hidden templates, and the front page which holds a summary of all child attendance and balances.
Up until a short time ago, invoices were created from an "Invoices.xlt" file - the program would open the file as a new book, and copy the 1st Template page out until all invoices were created. This worked fine. I've recently changed this so the Invoice template is stored within the main workbook. After I did this, we started having problems.
We can run off up to 25-35 invoices fine (32 at this stage), but eventually it hits a point where the Activesheet.Copy command fails. After this point it is impossible to copy further sheets. I CAN, however, use Insert -> Worksheet. It is only the copy function that fails.
Because it's such a strange problem, I've uploaded an example with children's names changed. It can be found on [url]
The steps to recreate the problem are simple: Open the file, select all of the children's names (from Child to Child z), and click the "Create Invoices" button at the top.
How AutoFilter Works
I need some information about How the auto filter in excel works?
Excel shows a drop box with list of unique values in that column, if i select one value only rows having that value are displayed.
Are other rows "hidden". I tried to unhide these rows but those are NOT hidden. What actually happens to rows that don't satisfy the filter criteria?
Paste Method Of Worksheet Class Failed - But Not On Step-thru Using F8

Method Of Object Class Failed. Adding Borders
Error 1004 on the 5th "With Selection" Chunk, .LineStyle part.
What I did is recorded the formatting I wanted on a selected region, then changed the major references to the defined region in my code called rngATotals.
At first I got errors with the "Select" method of the "Range" class with my rngATotals line (the first one). But then I clarified public variables and now its in the formatting chunk that was recorded.
--Changing security/protection settings
--Clarifying my rngATotals references
--Making the sheet containing rngATotals visible (still in my code snippet)
--And not using rngATotals to define my range but more specific, clunky references like Range ("A3":"B7") or Range(Cells...,Cells...) or Range ("RAnge'sName")
What further could I clarify? And why does it have a problem with the 5th borders/linestyle reference and not the previous ones?
I hate to have to ask another question about this error because there are so many...
Is there anything beyond what I've tried that is a usual way to approach this problem?
Anyway heres the

Copy Method Of Worksheet Class Failed In Loop Code
I have an excel sheet being used as a mini database table.Rows = records, columns = fields. I have some VBA to create a copy of base template in the workbook, then populate the new template with the data from a row/record in the db. I currently have about 100 records. After about the 57th record I recieve RT error 1004. "Copy method of worksheet class failed". I think this is becuase excel is running out of memory. My laptop has 1gig of ram, and i have closed all other apps when running the macro.
Is there a way to free up memory while the vba is running, without clearing my "for" or count position which tells the macro to create a new sheet and which row/record in the db to populate the data in the new sheet.
Paste Method Of Worksheet Class Failed When Macro Run Twice
I am working on a file which is a log of all the requests we send out to our vendors. We regularly need to re-send these requests to remind them they haven't responded yet, so I am working on a macro which takes the info from the log and re-populates the request form so everything doesn't have to be re-typed every time. I've added a MsgBox as a double-check to force people to confirm they want to re-send the request.
My problem is that if you hit "No" on the MsgBox, then try to run the code again, it gives me a Run-time Error 1004 saying "Paste method of Worksheet class failed". Can someone look at my code and see if you can tell me why it works the first time but not the second?

Autofilter Macro Works On One Column, But Not The Other
I'm using Excel to map automotive parts to vehicle applications (two different spreadsheets) for importation into a relational Access database. Production dates for parts rarely match the on-sale dates of the cars, so I've set up a macro that:
1. copies the start production date for a part record into the vehicle workbook at the top of the 'discontinued' column,
2. copies the end production date for the part into the vehicle workbook at the top of the 'release' column,
3. uses these pasted data points as criteria for the autofilter in the vehicle workbook as 'vehicle release date' < 'part end production date' and 'vehicle discontinued date' > 'part start production date'.
I find that the macro works perfectly in the autofilter for the vehicle discontinued date, but not for filtering the vehicle release date. The date is copied and pasted OK. When I check the custom filter dialogue box, the date has been entered in with the 'is less than' menu item selected, but it doesn't bring up any records unless you click on the 'OK' button once the dialogue box is open. I want to run the macro without having to run the autofilter manually at all. To troubleshoot the issue, I broke up the macro into two separate macros, one for release and the other for discontinued. Problem remains, even though the only difference between the two macros is the relative cell addresses. I've checked formatting of the cells for text vs. numeric and that doesn't appear to be a problem.

I have a pretty simple macro that I recorded and attached to a button. The macro is:

However, if they run the report and get Book1 THEN open the file containing the macro, they get a run-time error 'PasteSpecial method of Worksheet class failed' on the 'ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial... line

Error 'Method Range Of Object Global Failed' On FindNext Method
I'm trying to get the Find and FindNext methods to work. Column C contains serial numbers and there's a chance that a serial number might appear more than once in the column. What I'm trying to do is get Excel to find the first occurance of the serial number, find what row it's on and then see if this matches the variable 'CurRowNo' (defined earlier in the code). If it doesn't I want it to look at the other occurances of the serial number, find what row they're on and see again if it matches CurRowNo.
The variable 'EngCount is the number of occurances of the serial number (also worked out earlier in the code). I've got the code below, but I get the error 'Method Range of Object Global Failed' on the FindNext line. I have no idea what this error means or why it's happening.
