1. Note that it is "cells", not "cell".
2. ThisWorkbook.Sheets("CDF UPC Numbers").cells(2, 1).Value gets you the contents of cell A2. Then you want a range from a single number - that is not allowable. A range is a series of cells, e.g. A1:B2 is a range. Basically, for you are doing, you don't need it.

Assuming, of course, that A2 doesn't contain the address of a range. ;)
