I run the below code fine 99.9% of the time, but today I hit a problem when the sheet I was trying to copy had 298 columns.  I got an error that the size/shape did not match between source and target.

How can I resoleve the issue.  If I do a manual cut and paste I do not get an error.


Sub dfsjijsdfkoiewa()

    Sheets("Sheet1").Cells.Copy

    Sheets("Sheet2").Cells.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues............................................

    Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub

Where you do specify/select the range of cells to copy?

You could change the second command to show the anchor cell only, for example:
Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

If you're using a version of Excel earlier than 2007 - or pasting into a 97-2003 file (.xls) you'll encounter this error because those versions were limited to 256 columns.
