Trying to copy a value from 1 worksheet to another

I have the following sub routine that is trying to copy a data cell from one worksheet to another…

Sub Copy_Data()
Dim DataString As String

  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  DataString = Worksheets("Data").Range("E2:E2").Value

  Worksheets("Data").Range("E2:E2").Select
 Selection.Copy
  Worksheets("DRA Summary").Range("F5:F5").Select
  Selection.Paste
 
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub


When the statement below is executed…
Worksheets("Data").Range("E2:E2").Select

This error occurs…
Run-time error '1004':
Select method of Range class failed.

I am trying to copy the data in cell E2 from the worksheet named “Data” to
Cell F5 in the worksheet named “DRA Summary”

Can anyone help with this or suggest a better way of accomplishing this data copy?

Thanks.

Hi Tesla,

You can avoid the select issue by simply applying the .Copy to the actual range object rather than the selection range object:
  Worksheets("Data").Range("E2").Copy
  Worksheets("DRA Summary").Range("F5").Paste

Open in new window


Another option to do that is to use the Destination argument of the .copy method:
Worksheets("Data").Range("E2").Copy Destination:=Worksheets("DRA Summary").Range("F5")

Open in new window


You could also just move the inner value from one cell to the other:
Worksheets("DRA Summary").Range("F5").Value = Worksheets("Data").Range("E2").Value

Open in new window

Many ways to do similar things :)
