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.........................
Newcomer to Excel 2007 but long time programmer for Excel 2003. I am having problems with code that I feel should work. Code fails at the Select command with a "Run-time error '1004': Select method of Range class failed:
My workbook holds a month template and sheets for each month. I work on modifications in the template ,but would then like to update all the monthly worksheets. I recorded a macro to show me how to start programming the vb sub, but get a runtime failure 'error 1004 Select method of range class failed' when trying to select the column to copy,
I found the following code on your forum, but get the following error:
Run time error '1004'. Autofill method of Range class failed.
The error occurs when the spreadsheet either have 1 row of data completed or no data, can I get code to ignore the autofill when I only have 1 row or no rows completed in various spreadsheets. I have attached a copy of the spreadsheet.
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
Sub MoveToRoster() ActiveSheet. Unprotect Dim item As Long Dim myString1 As String Dim myString2 As String Dim myString3 As String item = InputBox("Please Confirm The Row Number Of The Child To Be Moved To The Roster.") myString1 = "c" & item & ":e" & item myString2 = "g" & item & ":n" & item myString3 = "c" & item & ":e" & item & ",g" & item & ":p" & item ..........................
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?
I'm attempting to write an OutLook 2007 macro that extracts excel spreadsheets from incoming email and saves them as a .csv file. Before saving the file I need to delete the header row. I am getting a "Error 1004 - Delete method of range class failed" error when running this code.
Here is the code: (the bolded line is where I'm getting the error)
Public Sub ConvertToCsv2() Dim xls As Excel.Application Dim oWB As Excel.Workbook Dim tmp As String Dim ws As Excel.Worksheet
When I run this code I get a run time error 1004, copy method of range class failed, I have an autofilter on and it is showing 5 rows, the 5 cells in column A of sheet2 gets copied to sheet1 OK but I get the error?
i added a "Microsoft office spreadsheet 11.0 " object using additional control and used it in my form of Excel Macro. then i added some data from the combo box to the embedded excel object dispalyed. the form displays correctly and am even able to add data to cells.
but am not able to sort a column. gives me the error message "Sort method of range class failed" have tried to make sure the sheet is active using the ".Activate" with the object name. this is the only solution available on the existing forums.
1.) I have excel 2007 and when I recorded the macro yesterday it worked just fine, but today it's coming up with the box to update values. The macro is set to open up the vendor assignment sheet and do a vlookup against the clerk and then return the information to the original sheet and then copy paste special values. 2.) Today it's also doing the calculating thing in the corner using 2 processors which it has not done before. 3.) Run-time error '1004': PasteSpecial method of Range class failed.

The macro I'm writing (Excel 2010) is a loop that inserts a column based on a variable location, enters in a formula in the first cell, enters another formula in cell 2, then should fill that second formula to the last row, then keep going until the loop ends. There is always a chance that there will be blank cells to the left and right so I didn't use xldown. I've tried writing in multiple ways, but I keep getting the error.
Code: Sub colfrmadd() Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Select colcnt2 = Selection.Columns.Count
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.
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.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate Range("A1").Select Selection.End(xlDown).Select ActiveCell.Offset(rowOffset:=1, columnOffset:=0).Activate ActiveCell.PasteSpecial End Sub it errors to: SELECT METHOD OR RANGE CLASS FAILED
I am trying to build a macro which will format the columns of a spreadsheet - basically it inserts some columns, writes formulas and highlights them. Here is a code I have got so far...
When I try to run this I get a run time error 1004 - Method 'Range' of 'Object'_Global' failed. The part of the code Range("N2:N").FormulaR1C1 = "=(RC[-7]/RC[-2])"
is highlighted in the debugger.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening, also it would be great if you could suggest better ways of writing this code - as I am new to vba programming and most of my macros are built using the recorder and then 'working' on them.
