Replace Method Error When Replacement Too Long

Oct 4, 2007

I have the following code written:

If InStr( Cells(i, 3).Value, "Other") > 0 Then _
Cells(i, 3).Replace What:="Other", Replacement:=Cells(i, 4).Value

This seems to work fine for the most part. However, if the value in Cells(i, 4) is too long, I seem to get a Run-time error '13': Type mismatch. Is there any way to rework this code so it can replace even if the string in Cells(i, 4).Value is too long?

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.

Column Taking Way Too Long To Delete Or Replace?

Jul 21, 2014

I have a data range with just under 100,000 lines by about 60 columns. In one of the final columns I used the formula =IF(COUNTIF($A$2:A2,A2)=1,1,0) in order to set a flag the first time that each unique value in Column A appears. (I know about the remove duplicates function but the data was sorted in a certain order and I needed information specifically from the first row in which each unique value appears.) The formula works - it's not very quick, but it works.

The issue I'm encountering though is that now I want to remove that formula so it doesn't keep recalculating and every technique I use either takes forever or stalls Excel entirely. I've seen the same issue in two different spreadsheets where I used the same technique. Techniques I've tried: selecting and deleting the entire column, copying and pasting values over the formula, Selecting all the cells and pressing delete, copying and pasting an empty cell over them, Selecting and cutting and pasting the cells to another workbook. I've done these while disabling automatic recalculation and even turning off Data Filtering. I just can't understand why a simple delete operation should take so long, it shouldn't matter what is in the cell because all I want to do is delete it.

Find, Replace Function: Formula Is Too Long

Oct 8, 2007

I'm receiving this message when I attempt to use the Find, Replace function. Formula is too long". I have a column of cells containing text only. ( about 2-3 paragraphs worth) I'm trying to replace a name with another name, which works fine where the cell contains a single or few sentences, but fails to replace when the cell contains too much information.

Replace Method Changes Date Formatting

Sep 11, 2006

I simply want to find and replace a character within many cells that have the format general using VBA code. The cells are all dates and are seperated by a '.' but i want them to be seperated by a '/'. I have used this code below to do so, it changes the '.' to a '/' fine but it swaps the month with the day e.g. '08.09.2006' would become '09/08/2006'.

Cells.replace What:=".", Replacement:="/", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False, ReplaceFormat:=False

I have noticed once the code is run it changes the format of the cells to date, even tho i include the 'ReplaceFormat:=False' function.

VBA Replace Method Retains 'Within Workbook' Setting

Nov 8, 2008

I am selecting a block of cells to apply numerous "Replace" functions to.
So I use the Selection.Replace command - for example:

Selection.Replace What:="Street", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False

if I have been working with Excel previously and did my own "Replace" and applied it to the entire Workbook (i.e. changed the within field from ' Sheet' to:
"Within: Workbook"

Then that field stays set to "Workbook" for subsequent Replace activities, including my VBA code !! Therefore if I do not manually go back and run one "Replace" and set the within field back to "Sheet", the VBA code will apply my Replacements to every sehhet and every cell in the entire workbook. Even if I have selected a Range of cells before issuing the command !! It ignores the selected Range and runs the "Selection.Replace" for the entire Workbook.

The "fix" I found on another site is to run a dummy command:

Set dummy = Worksheets(1).Range("A1:A1"). Find("Dummy", LookIn:=xlValues)

Which works. However, I am looking for a way to add a parameter to the "Selection.Replace" command that will cause it to search using the "Within: Sheet" setting. Otherwise I always have to remember to add that dummy line of code for every single Selection.Replace line of code.

Unable To Record Error, Long Formula Macro

Nov 25, 2008

I am working on using an excel workbook as part of a roll playing game and I am trying to record a macro and then put that in a command button which uses the randbetween, multiple if statements and multiple vlookup functions. I have successfully done similar things by just recording a macro and then pasting that into the VB editor. However this time I get a unable to record macro after putting the formula in the selected cell. I have tried copy and paste and just typing the formula with the same results.

Upon executing the formula I then want it to copy and paste special- values the result.

I'm assuming I have to put the VB code in manually but when I tried to do the formula I got a syntax error.

The worksheet I am working on is named new and I've included the formula in the a text box. I would like the result to show in J12 and be triggered by pressing the cmnbutton in k12.

Paste Method Error Riddle

Jul 27, 2009

The procedure below worked quite happily for two months. Now it (usually, but frustratingly not always) fails, with the following error on the asterixed line:

Paste Method of Worksheet Class Failed

If anyone has the inclination, please could you put me out of my misery and suggest what is going wrong, as I have been trying on and off for two weeks to rectify this. What disheartens me is, as I say, I have had no problems with this procedure up until a couple of weeks ago. It takes the ordering info for a particular day and pastes it into the correct day's sheet on the invoicing spreadsheet. Sometimes, when I re-run the procedure it then works......???

Sub Transfer_To_Invoicing()

Dim answer As Variant, active_workbook As Variant
day_num = Range("a127").Value
answer = MsgBox("Do you want to transfer " & Weekday(day_num) & "'s figures to the INVOICING SYSTEM now?", vbYesNo)
If answer vbYes Then Exit Sub
answer = MsgBox("Have you updated the values from the despatch sheets?", vbYesNo)
If answer vbYes Then Exit Sub
active_workbook = ActiveWindow.Caption
For Each w In Workbooks.............

Error Handling With Find Method

Jun 20, 2007

I have a UserForm (and associated code) to locate a specific entry in Column 'A' of a spreadsheet and insert a date, initials, and hyperlink to another file.

The basic code works fine, but did not account for the user entering a Job# that was not in the system, so I added an If/Else to account for this...
The additional code took the If (Job# not found) route every time...
Following many hours of searching this site and variations of the error handling code, I still can not get it to work.

So I'm asking for your assistance to point out why the error handling (based on other successful code found here) is not working for me.

'Insert Link
Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()

If TextBox1.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert a Job#"
Exit Sub
ElseIf TextBox2.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert Quoters Initials"
Exit Sub
ElseIf TextBox3.Value = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert Quote Date"
Exit Sub

The 'Find' part of the code is working, as the correct cell is selected after running the code... but it gives the error message, instead of executing the rest of the code...

If I remove the 'On Error Resume Next', it stops on the find block, where on inspection FindR = Nothing.

So if FindR does = Nothing, how did it manage to select the cell?

Find Method Error When No Match

Jan 28, 2008

Asking for a row value to be returned if a string is found to exist in the sheet. Works great if it finds the value but I get the following error when the string isn't found:

Run Time Error '91':
Object Variable or With block variable not set.

Concept code follows. The commented strOCNumOF line contains the value that's found on the sheet. The uncommented line contains a value not found.

Sub find_test1()
Dim intFoundOnCur As Integer
Dim strOCNumOF As String

strOCNumOF = "AP4506"
'strOCNumOF = "BP6020"

intFoundOnCur = ThisWorkbook.ActiveSheet. Cells.Find(What:=strOCNumOF, SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows).Row

Method Failed Error And Data Type

May 14, 2007

The error is:
Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed
Line it fails on:

Set r = Range("myRange")

Sub LearnCells()
Dim r As Range
Dim n As Long
Set r = Range("myRange")
For n = 1 To r.Rows.Count
If r.Cells(n, 1) = r.Cells(n + 1, 1) Then
MsgBox "Duplicate data in " & r.Cells(n + 1, 1).Address
End If
Next n

End Sub

1) 1st Dim statement, is this valid? I still get a little unsure- in the data type lists in the help file, the list file does not list things like Workbook, Worksheet Range.
2) Why is the error ocurring?

Run Time Error 1004 During Sort Method

Jun 9, 2007

I encounter a runtime error '1004' if the "Invoices" sheet is not selected when I run this procedure. The last line of the code is one which is highlighted when I debug.

Sub ProcessData()
Dim aiOldRows() As Integer, aiNewRows() As Integer ' Arrays of new/old rows
Dim rngRaw As Range 'Data entry area
Dim rngInvoices As Range 'Invoices range
Dim rngOpenPoint As Range 'Top-left corner of data entry area
Set rngOpenPoint = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Data Entry").Range("a3")
Set rngRaw = Range(rngOpenPoint, rngOpenPoint.End(xlDown).End(xlToRight))
FindNew aiOldRows, aiNewRows, rngRaw
InvoiceSequence aiOldRows, rngRaw
Set rngInvoices = Range(ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Invoices").Range("A2"), _
rngInvoices.Sort Key1:=Range("M2"), Order1:=xlAscending
End Sub

You'll notice that there are two other procedures (FindNew & InvoiceSequence) being called by this procedure. I don't think those have anything to do with the error, but I can provide the code for those if needed. Oh, and one other secondary question. To declare the ranges rngRaw & rngInvoices I pick the top-left cell of the data and then do:.....................

Handle Run Time Error With Find Method

Oct 11, 2007

I have searched the Forum for help on this error 91 but still cannot figure this out.

Below is a format macro I created. I have several ' Find' routines in here and at the beginning of each one I give it an 'On Error GoTo' type statement. This seems to work fine until it gets to a second error. I have moved various 'Find' routines around and it doesn't matter which order they are in, if there are two things it can't find, it gives the error 91 on the second.

Sub Format_SFDC_Detail_Reports()
' Macro to format reports with details. rguest

On Error Goto errorhandler

Msg = "Do you want to format this report for Landscape (Yes) or Portrait (No)?"
Style = vbYesNoCancel + vbQuestion + vbDefaultButton1 + vbSystemModal
Title = "Format Report as Landscape?"
response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title)

If response = vbCancel Then
'Exit the routine
Goto last_line:
End If
If response = vbYes Then
format_style = "Landscape"
End If
If response = vbNo Then

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.
