Hello  experts,
the next line Works just fine in vb6

objsheet.Range(Cells(12, c + 1), Cells(fi, c + 1)).HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter

but in visual studio 2012 express visual basic, it simply is not accepted.

What is the correct way to do this?

Regards,

Try
with objsheet
    Range(.Cells(12, c + 1), .Cells(fi, c + 1)).HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
End With

Open in new window

the sentence:

    objsheet.Range(Cells(12, c + 1), Cells(fi, c + 1)).HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter

produces the message

    "Cells" is not declared. It may be inaccesible due to its protection level.


Faustulus

with objsheet
    Range(.Cells(12, c + 1), .Cells(fi, c + 1)).HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
End With

returns message: An unhandled exception of type 'system.runtime.InteropServices.COMException' ocurred in MicrosoftVisualBasic.dll
Additional information to set the HorizontalAlignment property of the range class.

this sentence

objsheet.cells("a1:c10¨").selection()

does not work either.

What could be the problema?

I would try to properly declare the object and then change its properties:_

Dim objSheet As Worksheet
Dim Rng As Range

Set objSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
with objsheet
    Set Rng = Range(.Cells(12, c + 1), .Cells(fi, c + 1))
End With
Rng.HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter 

Open in new window


The error seems to be a known bug which is related to late binding, In your case I presume that objSheet is declared as an object rather than a worksheet, and perhaps that is all it takes. But setting up the range as well as the sheet should make sure that Excel understands your instruction at runtime.
