Creation of New Worksheet Not working

My man Sid helped me figure out how to create the ability to click on a cell and see the details behind the total expenses for a particular department/month combination via the creation of a new worksheet.  The sample list I gave him, however, only had one year.  My real data goes back several years, so I added another line to match the year, as well.  And for some reason, the new code produces only a partial list.  I've banged my head against the wall a little bit and can't figure out why the loop is not going through and returning the entire list.  I'm hoping someone can see the error in the code without my having to recreate the file, removing the sensitive data, so I can post it.
Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    Dim i As Long, lastRow As Long
    Dim rRow As Long, cCol As Long
    Dim mMonth As Long
    Dim yYear As Long
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim wb1 As Workbook
    Dim Dept As String

    '~~> Change the range to the relevant range here
    If Intersect(Selection, Range("r8:u13")) Is Nothing Then
        'the intersect function checks to see if the selection exists in the given range
        MsgBox "Please select the cell in the correct range"
        Exit Sub
    End If
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
   'Sheets("QB_Expenses").Activate
    lastRow = Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    
    ' finds last row in QB_Expenses Worksheet
     
   'This part tells the macro which dept/month combination we are working with
   rRow = Selection.Row
 
    cCol = Selection.Column
 
    mMonth = Month(Cells(7, cCol).Value)
    'What month are we looking for?
   
 yYear = Year(Cells(7, cCol).Value)
    'The month columns are all in row 7
    
Dept = Cells(rRow, 14).Value
    'What Dept are we looking for
    'The Departments rows are all in column 14
    
    Set rng = Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range("A1:G1")
    'On Error GoTo ErrorCatch
    
    For i = 2 To lastRow
        If Month(Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range("C" & i).Value) = mMonth _
        And _
        Year(Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range("C" & i).Value) = yYear _
        And _
        Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range("D" & i).Value = Dept Then
                Set rng = Union(rng, Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range("A" & i & ":G" & i))
           'if the month, year, and dept match, add this row to the open workbook
           
        End If
    Next i
    Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range(rng.Address).Copy
     Set wb1 = Workbooks.Add
     wb1.Sheets(1).Activate
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    
    '~~> Change the file Name Here
    'wb1.SaveAs "\\adpsfs\Accounting\Bobby\MyFile.xls"
 
'Call fitWidth

    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

It appears you are looking for yYear in the same row and column as mMonth.  Could this be your problem?  Would not yYear be in a different column?

Try using:
rng.copy

Open in new window

instead of:
Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range(rng.Address).Copy

Open in new window

and see if that helps.

Actually, I meant to ask, why did this work:

rng.copy

and this one didn't:

Sheets("QB_Expenses").Range(rng.Address).Copy

If you use Range with an address string you are limited as to how long that address can be (255 chars) so if you have lots of separate areas, you will end up missing some. More simply, you already have a range object so you may as well use it! :)
