Hi Experts,

The attached script shows error as “The selection is not valid” at this line:

.Range("A13:I" & n & ",M13:M" & n & ",Y13:AC" & n).Copy Sheets("Process").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)(2)

How to rectify this error? I have attached the workbook for Experts perusal. Hope Experts will help me.

Sub ArchiveData()

    Dim n As Long

With Sheets("Process")
    n = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
     .Range("A13:I" & n & ",M13:M" & n & ",Y13:AC" & n).Copy Sheets("Process").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)(2)
End With
    MsgBox "OK"
    
End Sub

Line 5 should be Sheets("Request")

Try this instead, you are copy values to row 13, so you can't repaste them in that section the way you are trying.  Paste some where after row 13.

Sub ArchiveData()

    Dim n As Long

With Sheets("Process")
    n = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
     .Range("A13:I" & n & ",M13:M" & n & ",Y13:AC" & n).Copy .Range("A14")
End With
    MsgBox "OK"
    
End Sub

Your paste is happening on the same range as your source...

Hi StephenJR,

Need your help. How to set the data copied from row  13 to 37 only. When I add title at row 39, its copying that row as well which is shouldn't. Hope we can fix the range.

Hi broomee9,
Tested but its not copying data from request sheet to process sheet.

Your request is extremely unclear.  No where did you say you need to copy data from one sheet to another.  You asked to fix an error, which my original post fixes.  If you're looking to copy the data from Process to the end of the data in Request then try this.

Sub ArchiveData()

    Dim n As Long
    Dim p As Long
    
With Sheets("Process")
    n = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
    p = Sheets("Request").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1

    .Range("A3:I" & n & ",M3:M" & n & ",Y3:AC" & n).Copy Sheets("Request").Cells(p, 1)
End With
    MsgBox "OK"
    
End Sub

Hi broomee9,

Apology for off track the question. Indeed yours and JR solution have resolved the problem, but I just realized that its also copying other cell data (after row 37) if column A  has a value.
