Error 1004 "Application-defined or Object-defined error" when selecting a range

Hello,

One of my Subs in my project used to work for last year... but now it errors out.

Error is on this line:

rng1.Value = rng2.Value

As you see, this Sub adds data from one file ("Raw Data" sheet) onto the other file's "Raw Data".
The destination file has YTD (year worth of data).

Any ideas how to fix it, please?

Thanks!!!

Here is the Sub:

Sub CRQs_YTD_UpdateData(lngLastYTDRow As Long, AsOfDate As Date)

  Dim lngLastSrcRow, lngNumSrcDataRows As Long
  Dim intCol As Integer
  Dim rng1, rng2 As Range

  Dim fndCell As Range
 

  'If we already have rows for this reporting week we need to refresh by overriding the values.
  'Otherwise append the new reporting week.
  Set fndCell = ActiveSheet.Columns(1).Find(What:=AsOfDate, After:=Cells(1, 1), LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
            LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
            MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
 
  If Not fndCell Is Nothing Then
    'Replace/Refresh
    lngLastSrcRow = Workbooks(pubStrWklyOutputFileName).Sheets("RawData").UsedRange.Rows.Count
    lngNumSrcDataRows = lngLastSrcRow - 1

    Set rng1 = Range(Cells(fndCell.Row, 1), Cells(fndCell.Row + lngNumSrcDataRows - 1, 1))
    rng1.Value = AsOfDate
   
    Set rng1 = Range(Cells(fndCell.Row, 2), Cells(fndCell.Row + lngNumSrcDataRows - 1, 53))
    Set rng2 = Range(Workbooks(pubStrWklyOutputFileName).Sheets("RawData").Cells(2, 1), _
                     Workbooks(pubStrWklyOutputFileName).Sheets("RawData").Cells(lngLastSrcRow, 52))
    rng1.Value = rng2.Value
 
  Else
    'Append
    lngLastSrcRow = Workbooks(pubStrWklyOutputFileName).Sheets("RawData").UsedRange.Rows.Count
    lngNumSrcDataRows = lngLastSrcRow - 1

    Set rng1 = Range(Cells(lngLastYTDRow + 1, 1), Cells(lngLastYTDRow + lngNumSrcDataRows, 1))
    rng1.Value = AsOfDate

    Set rng1 = Range(Cells(lngLastYTDRow + 1, 2), Cells(lngLastYTDRow + lngNumSrcDataRows, 53))
    Set rng2 = Range(Workbooks(pubStrWklyOutputFileName).Sheets("RawData").Cells(2, 1), _
                     Workbooks(pubStrWklyOutputFileName).Sheets("RawData").Cells(lngLastSrcRow, 52))
   
    rng1.Value = rng2.Value
  End If
 
  'Update Week-Ending date
  Names("Wk_Ending").RefersToLocal = str(AsOfDate)

End Sub

I'm not sure which clause of the If...Then...Else statement your code is erroring out, but if any of the row arguments in the Cells() statements equals zero, that would cause an error.

Also, I note that rng1.Value is being assigned the variable AsOfDate, then re-assigned to rng2.Value (lines 21 and 33).  This seems unnecessary.

Ugh...
I've noticed there is a value (a Note with 10 000 characters in it) in one of the cells, that's the rown on which the code stops Inserting routine...
Funny thing is that in the past this Sub had no problems to even load larger Notes (with 16 000+ number of characters).
Once I manually trimmed that particular Note cell, the code works like charm...

- this (trimming) cuold help other users with similar issue.
For now, there is not definite solution for this. I'm going just go ahead and trim that value with VBA code.
