    Application-defined or object defined error in Excel VBA from VB6

    I am getting an "Runtime error 1004 Application-defined or object defined error" on the highlighted line when I run this sub
    Code:
    Private Sub PrintIssues()

    Re: Application-defined or object defined error in Excel VBA from VB6

    I can't really tell where the error is, but I have had lots of errors like this. One time I remember writing a Sub to give a column based on a number and using .Range instead of .Cells.

    Hope that helps.

    Check your lngLast value - I got 65538 which is the last row in a sheet - is that really what you wanted ?

    (lngLast = bkWorkBook.Worksheets(1).Range("A10").End(xlDown).Row + 2)

    The line on which the error occurs is highlighted in yellow. Just scroll down a mite.

    I am using this in others Subs just fine. The spreadsheet is being populated by a recordset. Each time the query is run, a different number of records will be returned, so, I will never know how far down the data will go. I need to display, two rows beneath whatever the last row it, a total for two columns.

    Re: Application-defined or object defined error in Excel VBA from VB6

    Sorry Hack, what I meant was I don't see how the error is being generated. But I've run into that type or a lot when working with VB and Excel.

    And One time I remember writing a function to give a column based on a number and using .Range instead of .Cells.

    Code:
    Private Function GetColumn(Byval lngColumn&) as string
    	
    	Select Case lngColumn
    		Case 1
    			GetColumn = "A"
    		Case 2 
    			GetColumn = "B"
    		Case 3 
    			GetColumn = "C"
    		Case 4
    			GetColumn = "D"
    ..........
    End Function
    Code:
    	   shWorkSheet.Range(GetColumn(5) & lastrow).value = Format(lblEstImpAmt, "###,#0")

    Re: Application-defined or object defined error in Excel VBA from VB6

    What is the actual value of lngLast ? Make sure you dont have blank data in the rest of the sheet going down. You can always highlight the "unused" part and delete it to be sure.

    lngLast is defined as a long?

    Also, what is the value that is in - lblEstImpAmt.Caption?

    lngLast could actually be an integer, but I never use integers. I always use longs.

    lblEstImpAmt is a number amount which is the result of a calculation. It will typically be in the hundreds of thousands if not millions.

    This output is a report. The only thing the user will want to do is print it. Makeing them delete unused portions of the spreadsheet is not something that would make them happy.

    Re: Application-defined or object defined error in Excel VBA from VB6

    The problem is this line:
    Code:
    lngLast = bkWorkBook.Worksheets(1).Range("A10").End(xlDown).Row + 2
    If the end of the worksheet is =< row 10, then .Range("A10").End will return 65536. When you add 2 to that, that puts the row out of range. You need to somehow make sure that the starting range is within the used range of the worksheet. I.e.:
    Code:
    If bkWorkBook.Worksheets(1).UsedRange.Rows > 10 Then
        lngLast = bkWorkBook.Worksheets(1).Range("A10").End(xlDown).Row + 2
    Else
        lngLast = bkWorkBook.Worksheets(1).UsedRange.Rows + 2
    End If

    Smile Re: Application-defined or object defined error in Excel VBA from VB6

    Similar problems encountered with my VBA with Application-defined or object defined error. Can someone pls. help me to correct my program? I would really appreciate your help. The program stated below is very simple & I hope anyone can immediately see what's wrong with this.


    Sub Concatenate()
    Dim BaseRow As Integer, HeaderCol As Integer
    HeaderCol = 1
    Dim BaseAdd As String



    For x = 2 To 256
    If IsEmpty(Cells(6, x)) Then
    x = 257
    End If

    If IsEmpty(Cells(6, x)) = False Then '-----> problem occurred at this line
    Cells(6, x).Select
    Selection.Copy
    Cells(10, HeaderCol).Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    HeaderCol = HeaderCol + 1
    End If
    Next x



    End Sub

    Waiting for any reply...Thanks
