Calling Sub from onClick event causes "application-defined or object-defined error"
Posted on 2016-08-25
I try my best to tinker at VBA using fora like these alot. Now the "application-defined or object-defined error" is in my opinion the most vague one i've seen so far...
Basically I'm trying to call a Sub with given arguments from a UserForm dialog i created, the moment the user presses the OK button.
But everytime I run it I get the same error. The strangest thing is: when executing the line in the immediate window, it works just fine...
So here's the code(error line marked with -->):
Private Sub cmdOK_Click()
Dim useCategoryFilter, useCountryFilter, useBoth As Boolean
useCategoryFilter = False
useCountryFilter = False
useBoth = False
If UserForm1.cmbCategory.Value <> "" Then
useCategoryFilter = True
If UserForm1.cmbCountry.Value <> "" Then
useCountryFilter = True
If useCategoryFilter And useCountryFilter Then
useBoth = True
--> Call ThisWorkbook.CreateChart(useCategoryFilter, useCountryFilter, useBoth, UserForm1.cmbCategory.Value, UserForm1.cmbCountry.Value)
And then for the sub(due to classified data i cannot put the whole thing, but this one runs fine, when it does):
Sub CreateChart(ByVal useFilterCategory As Boolean, ByVal useFilterCountry As Boolean, ByVal useFilterBoth As Boolean, ByVal categoryFilter As String, ByVal countryFilter As String)
'Do some stuff here
PS.: i looked on the first 3 pages on the forum with the search line "application-defined or object-defined error" but didn't seem to find anything that is suitable for my case? Excuse me if i am incorrect on that matter.
Thanks in Advance!
