set wb = workbooks.open(myFile)
for each wksht in wb.Worksheets
  for i = 2 to myCount
    wksht.Range("C1:T5000") ' This will actually be an index/match
  next
next

Open in new window


Trying to figure out how to select a range inside of the for each loop of a set of worksheets. Need this for an index/match function that I'm creating, but I'm getting an "Object doesn't support this property or method" error.

Thanks!

Did you try using the select method?

wksht.Range("C1:T5000").Select

Of course, after you select, you'll need to do something with Selection or it will be a useless task.

You cannot select a range on an inactive sheet. If you really want to select it you must to wksht.Activate first.

You might need to activate the workbook too.

However, it is good practice to avoid selecting if you can (and you usually can).

Agree with Tommy about selecting.  You can simply reference any cell you want with the Cells method, then the cells are not selected but you can read/write anything you want to them, even on other sheets.
