Error 1004 paste special - Excel VBA

Hi,

When I add "Selection.ClearContents" in the code, I have an error message (1004 paste special) on :
  Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False.

Without that code "Selection.ClearContents", it's working.

How to clear the cell contents?

Thanks
'Copy
    Sheets("Corriger les donnees").Select
    Columns("D:k").Select
    Selection.Copy
    
    'Paste
    Sheets("Exporter les donnees").Select
    Sheets("Exporter les donnees").Activate
    Sheets("Exporter les donnees").Columns("A:h").Select
    Selection.ClearContents '??????
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False
  
    Application.CutCopyMode = False

Open in new window

I think the CC interrupts the copy/paste. Try this:
With Sheets("Exporter les donnees").Columns("A:h")
    .ClearContents
    Sheets("Corriger les donnees").Columns("D:k").Copy
    .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False
End With

ClearContents emptied the copy buffer.  Try:

    With Worksheets("Exporter les donnees")
        .Range("A:h").ClearContents
        Worksheets("Corriger les donnees").Range("D:k").Copy
        .Range("A:h").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
            :=False, Transpose:=False
    End With
  
    Application.CutCopyMode = False

Wow, Stephen and I were thinking pretty much the exact same thing :)

Indeed Patrick, except emptying the copy buffer is much better!

You can request attention. I think the fairest thing would be to split the points 50-50.

Karl001,

I'd be happy with a split as well.
