VBA - Vlookup formula - Codename of sheet for VLookup not working

Experts,

How are you doing?

I have the following sub (See code and workbook below).

My issue is with line 14:
rng1.FormulaR1C1 = "=vlookup(RC[-1]," & CorrectedAgentIDName.[C1:C2].Address(External:=True, ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) & ",2,FALSE)"

Open in new window

This returns the following in Excel:

=VLOOKUP(A2,'Corrected ID-Name'!$C$1:$C$2,2,FALSE)

I want it to return:

=VLOOKUP(A2,'Corrected ID-Name'!A:B,2,FALSE)

So that it is looking up the value in A2 and finding that on sheet Corrected ID-Name (codename CorrectedAgentIDName) using column A:B, returning from column 2 (B) and False.

What do I need to change in the formula so that column A and B are used for the lookup table?

Thank you,
Kevin

Change:

   rng1.FormulaR1C1 = "=vlookup(RC[-1]," & CorrectedAgentIDName.[C1:C2].Address(External:=True, ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) & ",2,FALSE)"

To:

   rng1.FormulaR1C1 = "=vlookup(RC[-1]," & CorrectedAgentIDName.[A:B].Address(External:=True, ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) & ",2,FALSE)"
