Hi,
I am having some difficulty dynamically changing the scroll area of my worksheets. I copy a range from one sheet to another and then I want to limit the scroll area of the final sheet. any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
scurvylion
Sub DetailCalculations()

Dim wkmc As Worksheet, wkss As Worksheet
Dim rngLast As Range, rng As Range
Dim lrow As Long, lastrow As Long, endrow As Long, endtbl As Range

Set wkmc = Worksheets("ModelCalculations")
Set wkss = Worksheets("Menu Detail Data")
Set rngLast = wkmc.Range("A1").End(xlDown)
lrow = rngLast.Row
lastrow = lrow + 1
endtbl = lastrow + 9

    endrow = wkss.Range("A9").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    wkss.Range(Cells(9, 1), Cells(endrow, 20)).Clear

     wkmc.Range("A1", wkmc.Cells(lastrow, 20)).Copy
    
  With wkss.Range("A9")
     .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
     .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
   end with

wkss.scrollarea = wkss.Range(Cells(1,1), Cells(endtbl, 20))

End Sub

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the line

wkss.scrollarea = wkss.Range(Cells(1,1), Cells(endtbl, 20))

gives me a run-time error 13: type mismatch

I've tried modifying it in multiple different ways but it still gives me an error although the error may be different than the one mentioned above.

The direct reference

wkss.ScrollArea = ("A1:T1900")

works fine but I would like to be able to dynamically control the scroll area.

Thanks

Try this one....

I have used:
wkss.scrollarea = "A1:" & Chr(64 + endtbl) & 20

Sub DetailCalculations()

Dim wkmc As Worksheet, wkss As Worksheet
Dim rngLast As Range, rng As Range
Dim lrow As Long, lastrow As Long, endrow As Long, endtbl As Long 'dim of endtbl changed to Long

Set wkmc = Worksheets("ModelCalculations")
Set wkss = Worksheets("Menu Detail Data")
Set rngLast = wkmc.Range("A1").End(xlDown)
lrow = rngLast.Row
lastrow = lrow + 1
endtbl = lastrow + 9

    endrow = wkss.Range("A9").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    wkss.Range(Cells(9, 1), Cells(endrow, 20)).Clear

     wkmc.Range("A1", wkmc.Cells(lastrow, 20)).Copy
    
  With wkss.Range("A9")
     .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
     .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
   end with

'ScrollArea changed
wkss.scrollarea = "A1:" & Chr(64 + endtbl) & 20
End Sub

My mistake!!
I got confused with the row and column numbering!

It should be this way..
wkss.scrollarea = "A1:T" & endtbl


Revised Code attached.
Tils.
Sub DetailCalculations()

Dim wkmc As Worksheet, wkss As Worksheet
Dim rngLast As Range, rng As Range
Dim lrow As Long, lastrow As Long, endrow As Long, endtbl As Long 'dim of endtbl changed to Long

Set wkmc = Worksheets("ModelCalculations")
Set wkss = Worksheets("Menu Detail Data")
Set rngLast = wkmc.Range("A1").End(xlDown)
lrow = rngLast.Row
lastrow = lrow + 1
endtbl = lastrow + 9

    endrow = wkss.Range("A9").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
    wkss.Range(Cells(9, 1), Cells(endrow, 20)).Clear

     wkmc.Range("A1", wkmc.Cells(lastrow, 20)).Copy
    
  With wkss.Range("A9")
     .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
     .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
   end with

'ScrollArea changed
wkss.scrollarea = "A1:T" & endtbl
End Sub
