Run time error on DirectPrecedents.Select

Hello

I am struggling with my error handling in VBA (please refer below for an extract of code).

       Worksheet.Cells.Select

       On Error GoTo NoPrecedentCells
       Selection.DirectPrecedents.Select

NoPrecedentCells:

End Sub

Regardless of the "On Error" command, a run-time error 1004 (No cells were found) arises.

Can you assist in anyway.

Thanks and regards
Aidan

Hi,

Have you verified in the VBE Options/ General  your Error Trapping Status

Break on All errors OR Break in Class Module OR Break on Unhandled Errors ( the right one)

Hello,

My Error Trapping Status appears to be set to Break on Unhandled Errors...

Is this correct?  On this setting the problem does however persist :(

Pls try

Sub DoIt()
ActiveSheet.Cells.Select
On Error Resume Next
PredCount = Selection.Precedents.Count
On Error GoTo 0
If PredCount = Empty Then
    GoTo NoPrecedentCells
Else
    Selection.DirectPrecedents.Select
End If
NoPrecedentCells:
End Sub

Open in new window
