    Excel macro convert to VBA - doesn't work, hangs on Range("Q35").Select

    Hi,

    I created a macro, then later decided to activate it via a ActiveX Option
    Button. As a macro it works fine.

    I copied the macro text into the View Code property of the Option button,
    and when I step through it in VBA it gives a Run time error 1004 when it
    comes to Range("Q35").Select. Interesting because about 10 steps earlier it
    handles Range("N23:N34").Select just fine - if I'm on the correct worksheet
    to begin with. But the Range("Q35") error occurs no matter if I am on the
    correct worksheet.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Harold

    You can only select a range if it's on the selected worksheet.

    With worksheets("Othersheetnamehere")
    .select
    .range("Q35").select
    end with

    But most of the time, you can work directly against the range and avoid the
    selecting.

    With worksheets("Othersheetnamehere")
    .range("Q35").clearcontents 'say
    end with
