bigb (Visitor) Jan 24, 2002
Hi

when I run my macro for excel in Visual basic I find this error:

Runtime error 1004

Method 'Range' of object' - Global' failed

I think the error is in this statement:
 
y = funct("abc", Range("abc"), 1)

--------------
The function has been defined as follows:

Declare Function funct Lib "hello.XLL" (ByVal sheetName As Variant, ByVal Range As Variant, ByVal lockFlag As Variant) As Long

Is range a predefined function which can be used in vb/macro
Range("abc") is supposed to calculate the range of the spread sheet "abc".

Could you help me fix this problem.
Thanks
bigb

RE: vb/macros

Yes range is a predefined function. An easy way to check this is to write the word, position cursor right after the word and press F1 (help) If its a "key-word" then a help text will pop up.

Best regards

RE: vb/macros

when i run my macro for excel 2000 in microsoft visual basic i get run-time error '1004'  Paste method of worksheet class failed and it specifically points me to  ActiveSheet.Paste, please advise

RE: vb/macros

keisha:
Please post as a new thread and include some of your code. The ActiveSheet.Paste method is a valid method, so there is some other problem with your code.

bigb:
The Range object should contain a reference to a specific cell or range of cells.
Range("A1")
Range("A1:C55")

Hope this helps...

RE: vb/macros

This error usually is indicative of the macro getting confused about what spreadsheet it is working in.  To test this close all spreadsheets.  If you are in 2000 or XP do a CTRL-ALT-DEL and select processes.  Make sure there are no EXCEL.EXE processes running.  If there is kill it.  Then try opening and running your macro.

I'm getting the following error.
