    Macro to copy a line to archive sheet and delete from active sheet

    My attached spread sheet has a macro that copies the line highlighted to the archive sheet and then deletes that line from the active sheet the macro is activated by hitting the button at the top left of any of the department sheets.
    The macro worked fine until the end of our fiscal year when I removed all the archived work orders from the archive page, to start the year new.
    Now when I try to archive something from one of the department sheets, it copies it to archive and gives me a range error.
    Up until now there has always been information on the archive sheet, I'm not sure if removing all the information on that sheet caused the macro to stop working properly.

    Could someone please look at the macro set up and tell me if I am doing something wrong?

    I'd be happy to send the last working file upon request. (the file that has all the information in the archive section and was running the macro correctly)

    Thanks in advance.

    After some test, I can't reproduce the error you are talking about.
    The way the macro is programmed, I can't see how you could get a range error.

    were you able to move the line to archive and have it erase the line on the active sheet?

    in sheet 'Dept 5811' I highlighted row 87 then hit the macro button on the top left of the sheet.
    The program stopped, when I hit debug it said "run time error, Delete method of range failed."

    I did the exact same thing as you mentioned and no error occurs.
    The line where the cursor is located is transfered to Archive and then deleted from that sheet.
    It works if you select the entire row or any cell on that row.

    I selected the entire row, as soon as I hit the button, I get the debug box, the program loops until I hit escape, then I'm able to go into debug.
    I've had the same result on my work computer and my home computer.
