Left Fuction In VBA Code Getting Run Time Error 1004
Dec 25, 2009
I am trying to use the Left function in my VBA code but continue to receive run time error 1004 - Method 'range' of object '_global' failed. Not sure if the error originates for code being written incorrectly or if the left function is not available in VBA. I am basically trying to take the first 9-characters for each cell in column K and copy the values to column G.

Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1).Select ActiveSheet.paste ActiveSheet.paste Application.CutCopyMode = False ActiveSheet.Range("p1").Copy ActiveSheet.Range("a1").Select End Sub Now everything works good with this code unless there is nothing copied to paste. In that case it will go to a "run-time error'1004' " I would like instead for a msg box to appear saying "You must copy required data first"
This piece of code runs perfectly on its own but when called at the end of another code it fails and I haven't a clue why. The reference wsTmp is dim'd globally and defined in the main component where it is simply - worksheets("somename")
Run-time error '1004':
The sort reference is not valid. Make sure that it's within the data you want to sort, and the first Sort By box isn't the same or blank.
I have a sheet that will force user to enable macro before revealing the sheets and enabling them to key in data. But because I need to protect the workbook from user deleting sheets and also having some locked cells. I got the run-time error 1004 unable to set visual property of worksheet class
Im almost finished my first code where the basic idea was to make activecell.name=activecell.value in the first column for the first 3 sheets. After messing with it i figured i couldnt have spaces in the cell name...then i learned i couldnt have random '()-'/ either. So i have the code formatted to do that and then its supposed to call to rename everything as well. but after the 1 sheets column is renamed the 2nd sheet gets error 1004 when range("A3").select is hit. What gives?
This is what ill be using the code on
Here is the code
Code: Sub RemoveChars() ' Works through first 3 sheets ' Sheets(1).Select
I am using the below code to select some spreadsheets under a folder, open them, select the entire font, change it to Arial and close the file. I am passing the file names from Column A and calling the below procedure in a loop. Everything works fine except the below problem.
If the file name I passed doesn't exist or the file is not accessable, I am getting an error message "File cannot be accessed. The file may be read only......" with two options "Retry" and "Cancel". When I click Cancel , it takes me to my code and stops at the line marked in red with Run-Time error '1004', Method 'Open' of Object 'Workbooks' failed. When the above error occurs , I need to just pass the value "ERROR" to ErrMsg filed and proceed further with the next file name.
Sub ChangeFont(FileName As String) Dim objXL, objWb, objR ' Excel object variables Dim Title, Text, tmp, i, j, file, name Dim strPathToSaveTo As String Dim strFileName As String Dim wkb As Workbook Dim wkb2Print As Workbook strFileName = FileName Application. ScreenUpdating = False Set wkb2Print = Workbooks.Open(strFileName) Cells.Select With Selection.Font .name = "Arial" .............
I have 4 command buttons (A-D) so that the users can update after inputting new or revised Data. My problem is that if updated in order, button D Macro below stops at the first "Selection.AutoFilter..." as if it cannot turn on the Auto Filter.
It will run if I manually set the AutoFilter on the sheet.
I think, and as I am completely new to this please feel free to correct me, the reason that it stops is that on the Button B is a "AdvancedFilter" Macro.
I have inherited a spreadsheet and code that I don't understand much about. I have code
Range("B4").Select ActiveSheet.PivotTables("Kh07Pivot").PivotFields("Specialty").Subtotals = Array(False, _ False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, _ False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, False, _ False, False, False, False, False, False, False) which error (run time 1004) and says 'unable to set the SubTotals property of the PivotField class'. If I make the number of False's equal to 12, then it doesn't error. However I don't know whether it is having an adverse effect on the data?
I searched these forums for any old posts to work around this but did not find any threads. If anybody knows a good thread about this, I would be greatful.
Basically I run some code to generate Startcolumn, StartRow, EndColumn, EndRow. If there is a limitation of 256, the code is basically useless. I don't know of a way to use the A1 range method whilst using the Range("A1:....")
I have been working on the following worksheet, which has A3-Z27 cells right now and will grow/shrink with time. The spreadsheet shown below is just a portion of the entire worksheet. My vbscript is below the worksheet. I have two worksheets PL Dbase and Waiting List. I am copying columns B thru G from Waiting List if Column J is = to "Yes". To the next available row in worksheet PL Dbase columns B thru G...These columns have the same headings on both worksheets. I am getting the following error, when I click the button I assigned the macro to: Run-Time Error 1004 Copy Method of Range Class Failed.
I want to paste data from a table without the header row from one workbook (Test1) into another (Test2), from Test2. Test1 is closed before this operation starts. I'm using the following
Sub Macro2() Dim myTable As Range Set myTable = Range("A1").CurrentRegion Workbooks.Open "C:ExcelTest1" myTable.Offset(1).Resize(myTable.Rows.Count - 1).Select Selection.Copy Workbooks("Test2").Activate ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select ActiveSheet.Paste End Sub
When I have both workbooks open, comment out the line that opens Test1 and step through the code, it works fine but when I close workbook Test1, and run the macro, it generates the following error message: Run-time error 1004 Application defined or object defined error. When I click 'Debug' it has highlighted the row that has the offset instruction so there is no trouble with opening the workbook Test1.
im having problems calling the hlookup function in vba. Here is the code im using. I get run time error '1004'. Ive tried both setting the range, and manually inputting it. The User Defined Function takes no inputs, but is designed to get the value based on the relative position of the cell in the spreadsheet.
Option Explicit Option Base 1
Function lastrow() Sheets("template").Select Range("A65536").Select Selection.End(xlUp).Select lastrow = ActiveCell.Row End Function
Is there a setting within excel that could cause a user to get a run-time error 1004? I have a workbook with a macro that adds additional sheets to the workbook when a button is clicked. The thing works fine on my machine and 3 or 4 other machines that I have had guys test it out, but I have a user that it will not work for. He is at a location about 3 hours away so I cant see exactly what he is doing, but he says after he clicks the button he gets a run-time error 1004 that says "Unable to set the PrintQuality property of the Page Setup class". I'm thinking that it is a setting within excel?
I am getting a run time error 1004 when i am running this macro. I got this macro to my earlier thread. As i am a beginner in a macro, I am unable to identify the problem. I have attached the workbook for the same
I have a macro, operating in my excel document. It works and does it's function. The only problem is every time this macro is running I get the run time error 1004, Method 'SaveAs' of object '_Workbook' failed. After clicking End in the error window it opens up a newly created sheet that I need. I don't need to save the file in the desktop, I need it just to open up like it does right now.
I have a Access database as a frontend sending data via transferspreadsheet to Excel. All works well in the A2k and Excel 2k in which it was built. I need to distribute to other users and some have Office 2003 which has caused some problems with Object Libraries but I have made a modified XL2003 version to load on those systems. However, I get a Run-time error 1004, "Application defined or Object defined Error" and the debugger stops on the following line of code that should be underlined ....
This macro starts out looking for the first non blank cell by looking down about a hundred cells and then going back up till it finds the first non blank cell. When it finds the first non-blank cell it goes up 1 row and adds 1 to the number for the next row. It works fine the first time then, after the file is saved it will stop the macro with the following message; Run-time error ‘1004’ No cells were found. If I format the cells in question, the macro works again until I save the file, then it happens again.
Excel 2003 11.8220.8221 SP3 I think there is a hotfix for this but I can't get it to install. Is there a way around this?
This is the portion of the code that gets the error:
The macro is timing out on the ActiveSheet.Paste entry...The funny thing is that a number of us can get the macro to work and several of us are getting this error...I am thinking that it is a setting in excel that is causing this...
