I have a button click with visual basic coding in one sheet. This button calls upon the next sheet along to do some work. This is just a portion of the coding:
sheets(2).activate
range("A1").select
It renders this error: "Run-time error '1004': Application-defined or object-defined error"
However if I copy and paste this into a module it works fine!!!!
What is the problem?????
Thanks

I need the vb within the current sheet as I will be copying and pasting it into other workbooks (so i need the vb to follow it)......
is the problem that the vb resides in a certain worksheet and cannot access other worksheet's stuff?

if u want to include your code in a specific sheet u must access range object like following

Sheets(2).Range("A1").Select

this is because if u don't specify the parent object if u r running code from the sheet, sheet will assume Self. If u r running your code in a module, it'll assume active sheet.
