Select Method Class Range Failed

Oct 31, 2007

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

Select Method Of Range Class Failed "Select Method Of Range Class Failed"

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 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...

Select Method Of Range Class Failed Error

Jan 27, 2013

Why I'm getting the above error when I try to copy and sort data into a workbook?

I'm using this:

Sub GetData1()
Dim SaveDriveDir As String, MyPath As String
Dim FName As Variant
SaveDriveDir = CurDir
MyPath = Application.DefaultFilePath 'or use "C:Data"

[Code] .......

To import the data and then these lines to copy the unique records to a range:

Sheet33.Range("C1:C1000").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy,
CopyToRange:=Sheet33.Range("S1"), Unique:=True

But the above lines are highlighted when I get the error.

Select Method Of Range Class Failed Error?

Jul 23, 2014

Macro has been working fine for ages suddenly have received this consistently?

It's not debugging to allow me to see the route of the problem.

i've googled and seen it's normally a use of select but can't see any issue in my code or understand why it would work for months and now stop.

note: also after i click Ok on the error the macro seems to continue running and data is pulled through. ...but this message comes up every time so it's questioning the reliability of the data it's pulling.

Run-time Error '1004' : Select Method Of Range Class Failed

Jul 28, 2006

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

'This checks for unique values
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim LLoop As Integer
Dim LTestLoop As Integer
Dim Lrows As Integer
Dim LRange As String
Dim LChangedValue As String
Dim LTestValue As String
Dim smessage As String
'Test first 7 rows in spreadsheet for uniqueness
Lrows = 8
LLoop = 2
'Check first 7 rows in spreadsheet
While LLoop <= Lrows.........................

Excel 2007 :: Runtime Error 1004 - Select Method Of Button Class Failed

Sep 26, 2013

My excel version is 2007 and i am on WIN7 64bit

I have a workbook with VBA which was working fine earlier. Lately i have been getting

"Runtime error 1004" Select method of button class failed.

I am adding buttons dynamically in a loop in a sheet and what surprise me is , i go to debug mode when error pops up and it points to below line

MySheet.Buttons.Add(ActiveCell.Left - 5, 25, 20).Select

but my code is running in a loop and i can see that atleast 20 buttons were added and it fails to select when it try to add this iteration. It is completely confusing me.

My entire below code is in a loop

maWrk.Cells(xIt1, yIt2).Select
mySheet.Buttons.Add(ActiveCell.Left - 5, 25, 20).Select
Selection.OnAction = "callMe"


I also notice that when it fails, on select method .. the button was actually added to the sheet with caption/name as "Button 65536" but then fails to select it. What makes the select to fail after adding the button? Could there be anything special with Button 65536?

Is there any better way to code the adding button and setting action and name for excel 2007?

note before entering the loop i am deleting all the shapes with myShape.Delete which name matches "btRun"

I also want to highlight that i don't have 65536 rows in my sheet. I just have 200 rows. and when this error happens it is on row 150 so firstly i wonder why it is naming the button as Button 65536. I would assume it will start with 1 and go on increments.

What makes excel to fail to select an added button in VBA?

Method Of Range Class Failed

Aug 29, 2002

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.

VBA - Paste Method Of Range Class Failed

I try to copy some cells from one workbook to another but keep getting the error message "paste method o range class failed."

I tried different ways to paste, such as

range("D157","D330).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

and got the same result.

If Dir(sourcePath & Format(voucherDate - 1, "dd/mm/yyyy") & ".xlsm") "" Then
Workbooks.Open Filename:=sourcePath & Format(voucherDate-1, "dd/mm/yyyy") & ".xlsm"

Copy Method Of Range Class Failed

Set rngData = wksData.UsedRange

With rngData
' clear existing filter
' filter on Owner col F
.AutoFilter field:=6, Criteria1:=varOwner
' check for count > 1 since heading row should always be visible
If .Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).count > 1 Then
.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy rngOutput
End If
'clear filter

Set rngOutput = wksSell.Range("A1")

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.

Pastespecial Method Of Range Class Failed

Oct 3, 2007

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("Calculation Sheet").Range("A39:A62").Copy
Worksheets("Daily Dashboard").Range("C72").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
Worksheets("Calculation Sheet").Range("C39:C62").Copy
Worksheets("Daily Dashboard").Range("E72").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues

[Result1].Value = "Complete"
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Sheets("Control Panel").Select
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Error :: PasteSpecial Method Of Range Class Failed

May 5, 2008

I found the following for something that I was searching for on the web.

Selection.Columns.PasteSpecial Paste:=8

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, _
SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

But I would get the error run time error '1004', PasteSpecial method of Range class failed.
