I have some VBA Formula -  

.Range("AO2").Formula = "=[Controls FI.xlsm]Control_Sheet!$K$5"

It picks up a date from K5 the file Controls FI

I am getting "Application defined or object defined error" when it attempts to step through the above line

Can anyone suggest why this is?

Many thanks

Notice the
'
 which i added...
