Excel 2013 VBA 'Range on another worksheet' question

I'm trying to dump the data in an array in a range of cells on the sheet that's not the ActiveSheet.

 
  Sheets("Sheet2").Range(Cells(5, 4), Cells(36, 13)).Value = arrMIDIEvents

Open in new window


I get an 'Application-defined or Object-defined error'.

However, it works if I Activate the other sheet and dump it. But I'd like to avoid leaving the ActiveSheet. Isn't that possible?

Thanks

Sorry, I deleted my suggestion before you responded after testing it.

This does work though:
Sub writeToNonActiveSheet()
arrMIDIEvents = Array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) 'Sample array to test with
Range(Sheets(2).Cells(5, 4), Sheets(2).Cells(36, 13)).Value = arrMIDIEvents
End Sub

Open in new window


I'd probably use an object variable to refer to the destination worksheet
Sub writeToNonActiveSheet2()
Dim destSheet As Worksheet
Set destSheet = Sheets(2)
arrMIDIEvents = Array(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) 'Array to test with
destSheet.Range(destSheet.Cells(5, 4), destSheet.Cells(36, 13)).Value = arrMIDIEvents
End Sub

Open in new window

You may use With keyword to shorten your references.
With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("yoursheetname")
    .Range(.Cells(5, 4), .Cells(36, 13)).Value = arrMIDIEvents
End With

Open in new window


And keep in mind, ThisWorkbook.Sheets is not the same as ThisWorkbook.Worksheets. Because some sheets doesn't have Range and Cells properties.

Perfect! Thank you all.
What I missed was, the .Cells(r, c) needs to be fully addressed with the Sheet name. I put it in the wrong place.
