I get this error ['1004' Method Range' of Object _Worksheet' Failed] when try to run

Last Modified: 2016-03-29
Hi All,

I need to print tables from ranges where the SubTotal is not equal to zero.  In specific cells.

I get a Run-Time Error ['1004' Method Range' of Object _Worksheet' Failed ] when I try running the code below.
It was working ok, but I needed to add a portion in blue to reference the right Print Areas...
Any help welcome as I'm feverishly working on this file. Thank you, thank you.

Sub PrintCDivSum() 'von saerdna
Dim SaveActivePrinter As String
Dim DictC As Object 'Scripting.Dictionary
Dim DictP As Object 'Scripting.Dictionary

Dim SheetsToPrint As Variant, i As Long

SaveActivePrinter = Application.ActivePrinter
Select Case MsgBox("Print to " & SaveActivePrinter & "?", vbYesNoCancel, "PrintCDivSum")
Case vbYes
Case vbNo
'Choose a printer
If Not Application.Dialogs(xlDialogPrinterSetup).Show Then Exit Sub
Case vbCancel
Exit Sub
End Select

Set DictC = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
DictC.CompareMode = vbTextCompare
' SheetName, Cells for zero check
DictC.Add "GC's", "AI65,AI166"
