    Unhappy Advanced filter from closed workbook

    Hi,

    I am trying to pull data from a closed workbook using advanced filter.

    here is what my code looks like right now. It works fine if I have both the workbook with the criteria as well as the workbook "ORDERS CHART" open

    However, if "ORDERS CHART" is closed, I get the following error:

    Run-time error '1004':
    Method 'Range' of object'_Global' failed
    Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have been stuck for days!

    Most likely, you can't get the information from the closed workbook.
    You can open and close the workbook in the same code.

    Could you help me incorporate that "open and close workbook" statement in my code?

    Thanks a lot for the quick response, I really appreciate it!

    Just like you used your macro recorder for the original code, you can use the macro recorder to open the workbook, do your advanced filter, then close the workbook.

    Post back with the code if you need help editing it.

    It seems that you missed the part about opening the workbook in the code.
