Range.select Error (SELECT METHOD OR RANGE CLASS FAILED)
Jul 23, 2008
I have this:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
it errors to: SELECT METHOD OR 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 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 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:
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
When the public routine ChangeColours is called from a Command button called ButtonX on SheetX it works fine. But a command button called ButtonY on SheetY cannot run it. When ButtonY is clicked, the error is at the line :
Where it says that "Select Method of Range class failed"
Private Sub ButtonX_Click() Call ChangeColours(0) End Sub
Private Sub ButtonY_Click() Call ChangeColours(0) End Sub...............
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 though...my 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...
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.
