I haven't worked with Excel much but you can't just pull the "report" Sheet out of thin air...

...but I think it should be:

    ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("report").Cells(r2, ColCount + 2) = Trader

Have you tried

Sheets("report").Cells(r2, ColCount + 2).value  = Trader

I changed this question into a Pointer Question leading to your original question at in the Excel TA. I also refunded 30 of the 50 points in the original value of this question.
