How can I apply this number format code to different sheets:

On "MAIN_PN" tab I have this code that works great But I need to apply it to "MAIN" tab O27:O30 as well.

Sub FixDates()
   Columns("I").TextToColumns
   Range("I4:J650", Cells(Rows.Count, "I").End(xlUp)).NumberFormat = "mm/dd/yy"
End Sub

Oh this came up......runtime error

I only get it when there is nothing in column O27:O30.  There are instances that this area will not get populated at times.
