Try this:

With Sheets("Outstanding Items Report-1")
   r = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
   .Range("A1:M" & r).Copy Workbooks("Asset Services Outstanding Stock Items.xls").Sheets("Outstanding Items Report-1").Cells(Rows.Count, "E").End(xlUp).Offset(1, -4)
End With

What I pasted above works for me.  You are missing the dot (.) before the Rows.Count.

Ah missed that, though I don't understand why that should have caused a problem.

No worries, I've missed putting in the dots in my own code sometimes too.  It can happen to anyone. :-)

Without the dot, the Rows.Count refers to the ActiveSheet, so if you're not on the proper sheet when you run the code, then it will get the number of rows on the wrong sheet.  The dot (.) ties it to the specified sheet, so it doesn't matter what sheet you're on when you run the code.

But I would have thought (clearly wrongly) that Rows.Count wouldn't change according to the sheet. Isn't it 65k.

Yes it is, but for the ActiveSheet, so it's A65536 on the ActiveSheet.

So if you have 50 rows of data in your desired sheet and 100 rows of data in your ActiveSheet r will return 100 without the dot and 50 with the dot.

broomee9: thanks for sticking with me! I would have thought the first dot would cover that, but I think I see what you are saying.
