Hi Guys, I have been running this macro for months but for some reason I am getting  "Compile error - Wrong Number of arguments or invalid property assignment" on the word "Format". Anyone any ideas why? Below is code:

Dim target As Range, target1 As Range, target2 As Range, target3 As Range, target4 As Range, target5 As Range, target6 As Range, target7 As Range, target8 As Range, target9 As Range, target10 As Range, target11 As Range
Dim Prevday As String

Prevday = WorksheetFunction.WorkDay(Date, -1)

Prevday = Format(Prevday, "DDMMYY")
'


    Workbooks.OpenText Filename:= _
        "V:\Treasury Finance Controls\Ledger v SS Recs\EOD Recs\BS\StructNotesBSRec_Daily_" & "*.txt" _
        , Origin:=xlMSDOS, StartRow:=1, DataType:=xlDelimited, TextQualifier:= _
        xlDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, Semicolon:=False, _
        Comma:=False, Space:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(Array(1, 1), _
        Array(2, 1), Array(3, 1), Array(4, 1), Array(5, 1), Array(6, 1), Array(7, 1), Array(8, 1), _
        Array(9, 1), Array(10, 1), Array(11, 1), Array(12, 1), Array(13, 1), Array(14, 1), Array(15 _
        , 1), Array(16, 1), Array(17, 1), Array(18, 1)), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True

Your problem is in this code

Sub test()
Dim Prevday As String

Prevday = WorksheetFunction.workday(Date, -1)

Prevday = Format(Prevday, "DDMMYY")
End Sub

Open in new window


function workday is available from Excel 2007 onward you must have been probably using this now in Excel earlier version Excel 2003 or earlier this is where you will get
invalid property assignment

IS this possible ? what version of Excel your using ?

Can you double check that you aren't missing a library on the VBA side?  I have run into issues with code giving errors like the one that you mention when the application was used in a high version and the Library for the new version is being referenced.
