I recorded a macro below but it does not work.  I get a run-time error 1004.  It is a simple copy one sheet to another.  I just can't figure out.

  Sheets("Prices").Select
   
Rows("3:1853").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Sheets("Compare").Select
   
    Range("A3").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste

Are the worksheets really named Prices and Compare? That's a common cause of run-time error 1004.

You could also try this one-liner:
Sub Copytron()
Sheets("Prices").Rows("3:1853").Copy Sheets("Compare").Range("A3")
End Sub

Another possible cause is if worksheet Compare is protected. If so, the run-time error 1004 should say something about protected cells.
