VisualBasical 2010 w/Excel 2007

Hi All,

I have a visual basic program that copies data from a text file puts it in a worksheet and makes a graph from the data.  For some reason the exe works fine on my machine but does not well on another.

Particularly it is failing on:
metricWorkbook.Worksheets(filename).copy(after:=XLSXWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1"))
        XLSXWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Name = MetricType


MetricType is defined as "PSNR"
filename as "DL1"

The issue is it works fine on all other machines except this one.  I do not see any dependencies except .net 4.0 which is installed. :(

Is there possibly no "Sheet1"?  Probably not a good idea to hardcode that value in there.  If it's the first worksheet you should use the index (1).  If it's a worksheet other than a newly created workbook, or you don't for sure know it's the first (left-most) worksheet you want to work with, you should probably set the worksheet as a variable first.

Hi Zack, thanks for the feedback, so something like:

metricWorkbook.Worksheets(filename).copy(after:=XLSXWorkbook.Worksheets(index(1)))

Thanks!

Almost, like this:

metricWorkbook.Worksheets(filename).copy(after:=XLSXWorkbook.Worksheets(1))

Open in new window


It's the index property of the Worksheets object.  It's just tough to assume the sheet name will always be "Sheet1".  But it may also, circumstances depending, difficult to assume it will always be the first sheet in the workbook.  If you want to copy it after the first sheet, use the index of 1.  If you want to copy it after the last sheet, use the Count property of the Worksheets object...

metricWorkbook.Worksheets(filename).copy(after:=XLSXWorkbook.Worksheets(XLSXWorkbook.Worksheets.Count))

Open in new window


... which will put it as the last worksheet in the "XLSXWorkbook" object.

HTH

Zack

it seems to be an environmental issue:
Does the target machine has Excel 2007 installed?
If so:
Are the Excel 2007 service pack/updates the same on all machines?
How are you interfacing to Excel? (Interop, open xml)
Is th user opening the target workbook?
