Problem with WorksheetFunction in Worksheet Module

Hi

I noticed that two of my WorksheetFunction formulae do not work if they are in a worksheet module. Is there a reason why I cannot create code with WorksheetFunction in such modules or is it a bug?

Massimo

Option Explicit


Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
UpdateValues
'UpdateStatisticsValues
End Sub




Sub UpdateValues()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Statistics")

Dim shpTotalOrders As ShapeRange
Dim shpTotalCustomers As ShapeRange

Set shpTotalOrders = ws.Shapes.Range(Array("TotalOrders"))
Set shpTotalCustomers = ws.Shapes.Range(Array("TotalCustomers"))

Dim lngOrders As Long
Dim intCustomers As Integer

'Doesn't work?
On Error GoTo Hell

lngOrders = Application.WorksheetFunction.Count(Range("Orders[ID]"))
intCustomers = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Customers[Orders]"), ">0")

shpTotalOrders.TextFrame2.TextRange.Characters.Text = lngOrders
shpTotalCustomers.TextFrame2.TextRange.Characters.Text = intCustomers

Set ws = Nothing
Set shpTotalOrders = Nothing
Set shpTotalCustomers = Nothing

Hell:

MsgBox "There was a problem."

End Sub

What do you mean when you say "it doesn't work"? Do you get an error? Does nothing happen?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Is the problem that you always get the "There was a problem message"? If so add Exit Sub following line 37.

I get a run-time error 1004: "Method 'Range' of of Object _Worksheet failed.

I don't get any error messages of the code is put in a regular module.

Do I need to change something on my code or does it work properly on your computer?

Try this. Change lines 28 and 29 to

With ws
    lngOrders = Application.WorksheetFunction.Count(.Range("Orders[ID]"))
    intCustomers = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(.Range("Customers[Orders]"), ">0")
End With

Open in new window


Note that there is a dot before "Range" in both lines.

If that doesn't work, please post your workbook and list the steps to take to reproduce the error.
