Hi.

I am having problems getting this right.    Thank you for your help.

    Dim ws As Worksheet:  Set ws = Worksheets("MySheet")
    Dim CCC As Range
    Set CCC = Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(1, 7))                       ' Seems OK
    Set CCC = Range(ws.Cells(1, 1), ws.Cells(1, 7))                 ' Computer gets angry

Try this.....

Set CCC = ws.Range(ws.Cells(1, 1), ws.Cells(1, 7))

Open in new window


When you use only Set CCC = Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(1, 7)), the range will be set according to the active sheet. While in the syntax above you qualified the cells reference with ws but not with Range so you also need to qualify the Range with the sheet reference, in this case ws.

What worksheet are you using in line 3?  Is MySheet the current sheet, or something else?  The range depends on the worksheet, so the syntax would be like this:

   strRange = "A7:A10"
   Set rngPipeline = shtPipeline.Range(strRange)
   rngPipeline.Select
