    Run-time error 6 overflow

    Hi all,
    I seek help to fix the below coding... I took over this spreadsheet from a former colleague. It was running smoothly for the past 3 months until now. Nothing has changed, in the files nor the code.
    The error Run-time error 6 overflow comes up on the highlighted part of the code below and I am not sure how to fix it. Someone please help? MUCH appreciated!!!

    Re: Help?! Run-time error 6 overflow

    Hi Nathan,

    Welcome to the forum!!

    Note you must wrap any code you post like this...

    [CODE]Please [url=https://www.excelforum.com/login.php]Login or Register [/url] to view this content.[/CODE]

    ...though as it's your first post a moderator will do it for you this time.

    I think the issue is the way you're setting the x, y and z variables in that x and y are variants but as z is an integer it only has a maximum positive value of 32,767 whereas from 2007 an Excel sheet has 1,048,576 rows so the value you're trying to assign to z is probably more than 32,767 (click here for a great overview on variables).

    See if setting those three variables like this helps:

    Administrative Note:

    Welcome to the forum.

    We would very much like to help you with your query, however you need to include code tags around your code.

    Please take a moment to add the tags. Posting code between tags makes your code much easier to read and copy for testing, and it also maintains VBA formatting.

    Please see Forum Rule #2 about code tags and adjust accordingly. Click on Edit to open your post, then highlight your code and click the # icon at the top of your post window. More information about these and other tags can be found here

    I did it for you this time. Please read forum rules. Thanks

    Hey Robert,

    Thanks for taking the time and suggesting a fix up. It did NOT work though.

    Re: Run-time error 6 overflow

    Does the error actually occur for you with that sample workbook? (I get lots of other file path errors but never the error you mention)

    Anyway, try changing Value at the end of that line to Value2.
