PasteSpecial Method Failed

I have a working macro that duplicates the active worksheet with values only. It basically cleans out formulas and data validation from the data. The code is:

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.

Run-time Error 'PasteSpecial Method Of Worksheet Class Failed'

Nov 26, 2008

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

ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Text", Link:=False, DisplayAsIcon:= _
End Sub

The user opens the file that contains this macro, then runs a report from a website that dumps into an excel file. They copy the data from the Book1 output, then click the button to paste it into the template. If done this way, it works fine.

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

Run-time Error '1004' Pastespecial Method Of Range Class Failed

May 22, 2007

I am using the following code and I'm getting a Run-time error '1004' error. When I reconstruct the macro one line at a time and run the macro between adding each new line - no error. After reconstructing the macro in its entirety, I can run it once with no error. However, if I try to run it again immediately after that, I get the error and I keep getting the error every time I run it from there on. I dont understand how it can work once and then stop working. Here is the full

Pastespecial Of Range Class Failed!

Aug 10, 2009

I wrote the following macro to copy some values from a master workbook to a new one. It works superb on my small test sheet but once I try to implement this on my big mastersheet I only get the "Pastespecial of range class failed" on the second pastespecial operation. Why does it work on my small test sheet and not my big master sheet?

Sub ReportGenerator()
Dim NewWorkbookFileName As String
NewWorkbookFileName = ActiveSheet.Name & " report" & " as of " & ThisWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time")
'Debug.Print NewWorkbookFileName
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Workbooks.Add xlWBATWorksheet
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteColumnWidths, Operation:=xlNone, _

Error 'Method Range Of Object Global Failed' On FindNext Method

Dec 10, 2008

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.

Run-Time Error 1004 PasteSpecial Method

The code is

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...

Method Failed After Protecting

When I protect my sheet, the module I have no longer works: an error message appears saying "Method failed..."

I searched around and found that if i used Me.Unprotect and Me.Protect at the beggining and end of the code, the problem would be solved, except that it isn't. After that, another message appears saying "Invalid use of me keyword"...

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.

Method 'Add' Of Object 'CommandBarControls' Failed

Mar 2, 2007

The following code below was very kindly created for me by someone approx 12 months ago and I have been using it without any problems at all.

The purpose of the code is to creates a new Menu/Title item named "Quality" on the main Excel menu bar at the top of Excel and place it between the "Windows" and "Help"

This new Quality menu then has further drop lists which i can add as suited.

Two days ago i started getting the following RunTime Error everytime i open Excel and i can not longer get the new menu "Quality" to show on my Excel menu bar.

run-time error '2147467259 (80004005)':

Method 'value' Of Object 'range' Failed

Jan 24, 2009

I have a while loop in which I'm updated information in 2 separate worksheets. I'm using the With-block statements separately to update each, but after the 30th iteration (and it's always on the 30th), the VBA code halts and get the "method 'value' of object 'range' failed" error message pointing to a line with the code as follows:

With Sheet1
.Cells(lngRow, 9).Value = intMonths
End With

where "intMonths" is an integer variable which I'm populated properly, and "lngRow" a long variable. When I debug both variables have proper data in them, and I have no idea why this is bombing.

Method Of Worksheet Class Failed

Aug 29, 2007

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

Sub pick_origin()

chkcounter = 0

shtnum = Sheets("Create Origin Zones").Index ' find sheet# of 'Create origin zones' to copy sheets after

For i = 1 To 56 'for the 56 origin zones checkboxes

Paste Method Of Worksheet Class Failed

Aug 21, 2014

I have an application I just built last week that seemed to be working fine. It's purpose is simple. It allows the user to select multiple .rtf files from a network drive, and then it loops through them, opens them up one at a time, copies the entire contents into a "temp" sheet in the excel workbook, then copies certain data from the temp tab to the next two columns in the main "data" tab of the worksheet, deletes the temp sheet, and then repeats the process for each selected .rtf file. Finally , it does some formatting of the "data" tab. All in all, it works quite well. Or at least, it DID.

Sub CopyRTFDocToTemp()
Dim WordApp As Object
Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
With WordApp

[Code] .....

As of last night, we started getting various errors.

"Run-time error '1004': Paste Method of Worksheet class failed" error messages occasionally. The frequency seems to have increased.

We were also getting an error message that reads "Microsoft Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action" error messages.

Then when I stepped through the code, I was getting an error message that read [filename I'm trying to open] "is locked for editing by" [me]. "Do you want to Open a Read Only copy, Create a local copy and merge your changes later, or Receive notification when the original copy is available"

I suspected two issues
1. The macro is not successfully opening the source file before it tries to copy it, so there is nothing to paste into Excel
2. The word file was not closed the LAST time I ran the app, so the file is getting stuck open, and I have no way to manually close it.

Finally, I rebooted the PC, and added code (activedocument.close) to close the word app after copying the contents of the rtf file


Sub CopyRTFDocToTemp()
Dim WordApp As Object
Set WordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
With WordApp

[Code] ....

I'm considering adding a wait loop to ensure that the app has actually opened a copy of the rtf file, so it has something to copy, but I'm unsure what variable to check with that loop.

Method 'location' Of Object '_Chart' Failed

Oct 24, 2008

I'm currently working on a fairly complex VBA project in Excel 2007. Basically though, I'm downloading information from a site, massaging it, creating a lot of graphs, saving them locally, deleting the chart from excel. I then save a copy of the workbook to a local file, clear the Spreadsheet, and then Do the same for information from another site.

When I had all of the code in one Module and ran it as a macro it ran flawlessly.

Now i've put the information into a Class. And am pretty much running the same process via a UserForm.

The problem I have though is that at any point after I execute the (and please assume that all variables have been declared, because they have)
