VBA - Can't Unlist Table in Excel 2010

Hi Experts,

I'm using ActiveSheet.ListObjects("myTABLE").Unlist to delete a Table but it gives me a Run-time error '9',  "Subscript out of range" error (even though I can visually see the Table name and location in the Name Manager dialog) but if I then try to add the same "myTable" Table with an .Add parameter, I get another Run-time error '1004' error saying "A table cannot overlap another table" (and there are no other Tables that overlap this Table's Rows/Columns).  

In the attached file, the calling sub that is causing the problem is "View_Room_Requirements_V1" and the actual Table name I'm trying to delete if it exists (and then subsequently add back) is: "TABLE_Room_Requirements".  I got around the original error by only trying to Unlist it IF it exists, but the subsequent Add still doesn't work because I can't delete the Table.

Hope this is clear.

You uploaded a file that has no code.

Not sure what happened there, Martin, but I'll attach it again here.

Huh. That one seems to have problems, too.  I notice the file name was changed from what I named it, too.  I will attach it zipped this time ...  Well, EE gives me an error when I try to upload the zipped version: "The archive could not be scanned: Stream closed".  Not sure what to do next ...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The table name isn't "TABLE_Room_Requirements" it's "TABLE_Room Requirements". No second underscore.

BTW I believe the problem with us downloading the file is that you didn't include a valid Excel file extension.

Martin,

I'm not seeing where "TABLE_Room Requirements" with no second underscore is used.  The Range name uses both underscores and so do all instances of this Table in my code.  Can you advise where you are seeing this?

Also, I did include both the .xlsm and .zip extensions on the files I attempted to upload ... so can only assume a hiccup in the EE system ...

If you add this code to module1 and run it

Sub ListListobjects()
Dim lngListObj As Long

With Sheets("2015 PCA FALL GRUPPENEINTEILUNG")
    For lngListObj = 1 To .ListObjects.Count
        Debug.Print "Listobject " & lngListObj & " is named " & .ListObjects(lngListObj).Name
    Next
End With
End Sub

Open in new window


This will be the output in the Immediate Window (Ctrl+g in the VBE)
No second underscore

Well, that was strange.  Because I was able to see the Table named WITH the 2nd underscore in Name Manager.  But I did try unlisting the Table name withOUT the 2nd underscore in it, and it did delete.  

Thanks for the help with that, Martin.  Do you have any idea what could cause this and is it suggesting corruption in the file?

If so, I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to recover from same.

My guess is that it's some type of corruption because I don't believe that Excel normally allows a space in either a Table Name or in a Named Range. You might want to ask a new question and see if anyone has a solid explanation for the situation. If you do that could you please post the URL here because I'd be interested in following the discussion.

In any case you're welcome and I'm glad I was able to help.

In my profile you'll find links to some articles I've written that may interest you.
