Ignore statement

I am using the following piece of code which works fine when there is data to collect

strRange = Left(strRange, Len(strRange) - 1)
.Range(strRange).Copy

But it falls over with the statement 'Invalid procedure call or argument' when there is no data.

Could an expert out there provide me with the code that will move the code past this so that it does not fall over when there is no data

Thanks

before the line that fails you can put 'on error resume next' if you know this is the only reason for the error.

its usually better to code around this sort of thing though by checking to see if the range is available. for example the following makes sure that strrange is at least 2 characters before trying to shorten it (your code should be trying to prove its a valid range as well)

If strRange > 2 then    
 strRange = Left(strRange, Len(strRange) - 1)
   .range(...
Endif

I agree with regmigrant on the approach, but he most likely intended his code to be the following (with the len() function):

If len(strRange) > 2 then    
 strRange = Left(strRange, Len(strRange) - 1)
   .range(...
Endif
