I have a sub and within it i call various subs

A particular sub is not calling

Call FillFormula

if i step through the sub, it will call, if i run it all at once through a button, it does not call it.

Is there an error in my structure?

Thanks
Seamus

Post the FillFormula procedure.

Is it in the same module, is it a function, does it have the word "Private" in front of it?

Here it is broomee9
Sub FillFormula()

Dim r As Long

Sheets("Raw Data").Visible = True
Sheets("Raw Data").Select
With Sheets("Raw Data")
    r = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    .Range("N2").Formula = "=F2"
    .Range("O2").Formula = "=IF(N2<=5,""0-5"",IF(AND(N2>=6,N2<=15),""6-15"",IF(AND(N2>=16,N2<=30),""16-30"",IF(AND(N2>=31,N2<=90),""31-90"",""91+""))))"
    .Range("P2").Formula = "=VLOOKUP(H2,'Mapping Table'!$B$21:$F$40,2,0)"
    .Range("Q2").Formula = "=VLOOKUP(H2,'Mapping Table'!$B$21:$F$40,3,0)"
    .Range("R2").Formula = "=VLOOKUP(H2,'Mapping Table'!$B$21:$F$40,4,0)"
    .Range("S2").Formula = "=VLOOKUP(H2,'Mapping Table'!$B$21:$F$40,5,0)"
    .Range("T2").Formula = "=H2&"" ""&O2"
    .Range("U2").Formula = "=IF(M2=V2,""TRUE"",""FALSE"")"
    .Range("V2").Formula = "=IF(OR(M2=WORKDAY(TODAY(),-1),M2=WORKDAY(TODAY(),-2)),""Keep"",""Delete"")"
    .Range("W2").Formula = "=IF(M2=WORKDAY(TODAY(),-1),""Today"",""No"")"
    
    .Range("N2:W2").Copy .Range("N2:W" & r)
End With

Is it in the same module, or is it in a class module?

What's the name of the module it's in?  Try this, assuming the module name is Module1

Module1.FillFormula

What does Datacall do? If it retrieves external data, my guess would be that that data refreshes in the background so your fillformula sub has nothing to fill when it runs (the data is still refreshing).

Add this msgbox to the top of your module, and see if the message appears, then you'll know it's being called properly:


Sub FillFormula()

'Add this
msgbox "You made it in"

 'Your code here
 '.....
End Sub

Your spot on Rorya, it is retrieving data.

So i need to run the fill data part later in the sub?

No, you just need to make sure that your data retrieval process does not use a background query. If you are using 2003 or earlier, right -click on the resulting data, choose Data Range Properties and uncheck the option to allow background refreshing. Or, if you are not using Refreshall but refreshing a specific table in code, you can specify the Backgroundquery:=false argument in the code.

Why don't you just pause your code to let the datacall finish refreshing the data.


Add this to the very top of your module (right below Option Explicit)
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)


Then do something like this:

Call Datacall
Sleep(10000) 'Wait 10 seconds
Call FillFormula
