    Run-Time error 1004

    I am very new to vba and I'm trying to write a marco to sort out data. However, when it finishes with calculating the previous, it kept on showing me the runtime error. Also, I am sure there is a way to loop this instead of me just simply copy and past the command.

    What it does is to change range A2 to S7, S8, S9... then calculate the sheet and copy and paste the data into a different sheet renamed after what is specified in cell A2. This process then go back to the lookup sheet and repeat the same for s8 etc...

    Can someone give me some advices please?? Thanks!!

    See below for the code:

    Re: Run-Time error 1004

    Thanks, however, I still experience the runtime error with the code you modified.

    I need to select A2 and change it to for example S1, then calculate sheet. Once the calculation finishes, I will need to copy all the date to a standalone tab called S1, but paste special (numbers) only, then go back to the previous sheet (called lookup), then change A2 to S2...

    Can you help me please?

    Re: Run-Time error 1004

    That procedure does what you want except copy values only.
    After changing A2 the sheet will recalculate unless you have turned calculation to manual.

    you should not need:

    Run time error 1004 can be caused if any one of the cells you are copying has over 911 characters in it. do you?

    My code ran perfectly ok but i didnt have any data in the range being copied. Try it in a blank workbook.

    Do you have any merged cells in that range?
    Can you provide a sample workbook with the typical data that you are calculating/copying as this might be causing the error.

    Re: Run-Time error 1004

    I have turned it off the calculation. I.e. I've turned it into manual.

    What I'd like is to change A2 then calculate sheet, then copy data to a different tab. The data is less than 911 characters I think

    Re: Run-Time error 1004

    you need to have your calculation set to automatic.
    Then as soon as the code changes A2 it will recalculate the sheet before it copies the data.

    I cant help anymore without viewing your workbook.
