I have received a workbook to debug.  Execution of the code stops on the following line with the error message it cannot be found.
ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("HomeLay")).Select

Below is a list of all shapes on the active page.
Shape Name      Shape Type
Group 125      Group 125
Group 126      Group 126
Group 127      Group 127
Group 128      Group 128
Picture 1      Picture 1
TextBox 102      TextBox 102
Picture 34      Picture 34
TextBox 33      TextBox 33

Any idea what is going on here?

The code you have provided is attempting to select a range of one shape with the name of "HomeLay". If there are no shapes named that then you will get the error you reported. The Shapes.Range method typically is used to select multiple shapes by specifying the name of each in the Array function...

ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("Group 125", "Group 126", "Picture 1")).Select

Open in new window


Incidentally, this line...

ActiveSheet.Shapes.Range(Array("HomeLay")).Select

Open in new window


...performs the same action as this...
ActiveSheet.Shapes.("HomeLay").Select

Open in new window
