Run time erroor 1004 Application defined or object defined error

Can any body help in refining the code
In a function dealing with Excel I'm getting runtime error 1004

My code is like this

If Excelo.Range("N24").Value = 0 Then
    Rop = 30
ElseIf Excelo.Range("N24").Value = 1 Then
    Rop = 31
ElseIf Excelo.Range("N24").Value > 1 Then
    If Excelo.Range("M" & Chr(Row)).Value <> "" Then
    Rop = Rop + 1
    End If
    Loop Until Excelo.Range("M" & Chr(Row)).Value = ""
End If

It is highlighting

 If Excelo.Range("M" & Chr(Row)).Value <> "" Then

I'm checking excel cells and if the cell cell is not empty The value of Rop should be increased

Thank You

Hi LakshmanaRavula,

Rather than use the range object, use the cells property:

    If Excelo.Cells(13,Row).Value <> "" Then
    Rop = Rop + 1
    End If
    Loop Until Excelo.Cells(13,Row).Value = ""

Not at all, you have to select the best object/property to do a specific task. Personally I don't like the range object because of this sort of thing though it has its place. The Cells property is in some ways much easier when you are coding as you don't have to build the range string and can easily do nested loops to get whole ranges and manipulate them.
