Excel 2010 SP 1. Windows 7.

I have a workbook that was originally created on XP machine with either Office 2007 or 2003.

The workbook has this macro that adds a row to the spreadsheet and then sorts the rows:

 
Sub AddRow()
'
' AddRow Macro
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range("A3:A200") _
        , SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Sort
        .SetRange Range("A3:AZ200")
        .Header = xlNo
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
    Rows("2:2").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown
    Rows("3:3").Select
    Selection.Locked = True
    Rows("3:3").Select
    Selection.Locked = False
    Selection.FormulaHidden = False
    Rows("3:3").RowHeight = 27
    Range("A3").Select
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    
End Sub

Open in new window


I run the macro, everything works fine, I save and close the file.

When I reopen the file, I get this:

 Error
I click "Yes" and then get this:

 Repairs
I click on the "view log file" link and get this:

 Log File
When I save, close, and reopen, everything works fine again. I can reopen the file without problems. But, once I run the macro, save, and close, then the error comes back.

Thanks.

I have had this when I save a Pivot table created by earlier version of excel in 2010 back to the original format. The only solution I've found is to delete and recreate the pivot table and save in native 2010 format. I *think* this would result in removing the Current Time properties mentioned in the article but as I dont use the analysis tools mentioned I wouldnt know

I added .SortFields.Clear to the end of my sort code and that appears to have resolved the problem.
