The code below has been implemented to:

1. delete existing OLE shapes from hidden worksheet 1
2. copy new OLE shapes from hidden worksheet 2
3. paste the copied shapes in hidden worksheet 1

The command button is on a worksheet 3, which is the only visible sheet to the user.

The code works fine for steps 1 and 2, but doesn't work for step 3 (pasting the shapes to hidden worksheet 1).

The code is as follows:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

 ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("6").Shapes.Range(Array("1", "2", "3", "4", "5")).Delete

    ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("7").Shapes.Range(Array("1", "2", "3", "4", "5")).Select

End Sub
