This spreadsheet was updated from MS Office 2012 to MS Office 2013.  Now code I used before sheet1.cells(5,2) comes back and tell me application-defined or object defined error.  So somewhere I lost a reference.   could someone please tell me how to get It back.  I cant seem to use sheet2.activate or anything referencing the sheets.

thanks

it should  work!! can you see sheet1 in project explorer in code window?

make sure that you have at least those references in the project

dim sheet1 as worksheet
set sheet1 = activeworkbook.worksheets(1)

Open in new window

Will you send me the file. You can remove any data inside but keep the sheets. And make sure that the problem still exists in the uploaded file
BTW did the code I gave you before solved the problem?
