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?

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.
