    Run-time error 1004 when running Advanced Filter for Unique Values in macro

    I have recorded a series of macros that involve using the Advanced Filter to filter columns for unique values. The macros have worked perfectly in Excel 2003, but when I try to use them in Excel 2007 or 2010 I'm receiving the following error message: "Run-time error '1004': AdvancedFilter method of Range class failed". The funny thing is, the macro will run but stall once it reaches the AdvancedFilter code (which is the last line of code). If I hit ESC to stop the macro, Excel shows a filtered list as if the macro had run correctly, but returns the error above. I've let the macro run for 20 minutes to see if it's a time issue and it will continue to stall on the AdvancedFilter code indefinitely. Note, in order to go from running the macros in 2003 to 2007/2010 I've changed all references of 65,536 rows to 1,048,576 rows within the code. Here's the code for one of the macros where this is occurring:

    Is there some change that needs to be made in order for this to work in Excel 2007/2010?

    The problem could be because you are filtering an entire column.

    Can't you set the range to filter to only cover the data in that column?

    I have tried that and specifying a specific range (ex. B2:B250000), both return the same situation as described above: they stall indefinitely on that last line of code, but if I hit ESC Excel shows a filtered list and the 1004 Run-time error.

    Does your data extend down to row 250000?

    Does this work?
