Excel Report will not copy results

I have a button on my "Inventory" worksheet that copies items that have "On-Hand" quantity for the number I select.  It pastes the results into the OHReport worksheet.  Everything works just as I want.  

The problem I am having is when I create the same button on the "OHReport" worksheet and run it, I am prompted to enter a quantity, but no results are returned.

Private Sub SelectQtyOH_Click()

Dim OH As String
Dim x As Long
x = 2

OH = InputBox("Enter Search Quantity")
Do While Cells(x, 1) <> ""
If Cells(x, 7) = OH Then
erow = Sheets("OHReport").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row
ActiveSheet.Paste Destination:=Worksheets("OHReport").Rows(erow)
End If
x = x + 1
Application.CutCopyMode = False


End Sub

There is a better way of doing this. Use Autofilter to filter the data in column G on Inventory Sheet with the criteria entered in InputBox and then copy the filtered data to the report sheet.
Private Sub SelectQtyOH_Click()
Dim wsData As Worksheet, wsReport As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long, lc As Long, eRow As Long
Dim OH As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Set wsData = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Inventory")
Set wsReport = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("OHReport")

lr = wsData.UsedRange.Rows.Count
lc = wsData.UsedRange.Columns.Count

OH = InputBox("Enter Search Quantity")

wsData.AutoFilterMode = False

With wsData.Rows(1)
    .AutoFilter field:=7, Criteria1:=OH
    If wsData.Range("G1:G" & lr).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Cells.Count > 1 Then
        eRow = wsReport.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row
        wsData.Range(wsData.Cells(2, 1), wsData.Cells(lr, lc)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy wsReport.Range("A" & eRow)
    End If
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
