Saving Worksheet to PDF in Excel

Hi Experts,

I'm having an issue with trying to save worksheets as PDF's in Excel. My Script looks like this:

        Sheets("ORF - Process Summary").Visible = True
        Sheets("ORF - Process Summary").Select
        Sheets("ORF - Process Summary").Copy
        ActiveSheet.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
            "\\svrau570bsm01\" & Range("ORFraiseLAN").Value & "$\My Documents\Classification Tool\" & Range("CURRENTorf").Value & " Process TEST.pdf" _
            , Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=False, _
            IgnorePrintAreas:=False, OpenAfterPublish:=True

I think that just having selected the sheet should be sufficient before running the export. I'm currently getting a runtime error '1004': Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' Failed

(the code is attached to a button on the worksheet I'm trying to save as a pdf).

Ultimately I want to save a number of worksheets as PDF's

Any help appreciated
