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

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.

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.
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 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.........................
I am getting the following error: Run-time Error '1004': Copy method of Worksheet class failed. after adding 53 worksheets to a workbook using VBA. I found several posts concerning this error in the forum. However, I did not find any responses that address the root cause or provide a solution.
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:
Very new to VBA and having trouble with a simple macro running in 2003 that copies and pasts to another worksheet. Code as follows:
Private Sub CopyResults_Click() 'Select the filtered data and copy it Range("A23").Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select Selection.Copy Range("F19").Select ' Open the template and copy in the data Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:Athens Verification DataTemplatesVerification Template.xls" Workbooks("Verification Template.xls").Activate ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select ActiveSheet.Paste ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select Application.CutCopyMode = False End Sub
When I run CopyResults, the sheet is opened and the data copied correctly, but I get a runtime error 1004 past method of worksheet class failed, with the line 'ActiveSheet.Paste' highlighted. Don't get this when I run the same macro in 2000.
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.
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
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
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)
