    Excel Macro (ActivX component cant create object) Error

    Dear all,

    I am working with Macros on Excel and i had a file that's programmed and working fine with Macro.

    Today all of the suddent it gave me a new message when am trying to run the Macro on it

    This new message is the following " ActivX component cant create object "

    Am going crazy as the file was working fine... Also, i tried to copy all the programming to another excel file and started it from scratch and it worked !! that what made me got crazier.


    The file stops at the first line now.

    Sub StartUpdate()


    Please help.

    Thank you.

    irrelevant, post the entire procedure
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Can you zip and attach the actual workbook, if the data isn't too "sensitive?"

    Re: Excel Macro (ActivX component cant create object) Error

    you should avoid working with the selection object or active any thing, use full qualified ranges, workbook and sheet objects

    some example
    Code:
    with Workbooks("Director DDS.xlsm")
        .Save
        .Close
    end with
    OR
    Code:
    set wbdds = Workbooks("Director DDS.xlsm")
    wbdds.close true
    when working with multiple worksheets, it is better to set sheet objects at the start, then work with them throughout the procedure


    having said all that, i do not see any thing in sub startupdate to cause your error, so posting a sample workbook would have to be the best option
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    I didnt quite understand why it is better to set sheet objects at the start... what is the use of it ?

    The use of it is that you then know you're always working on the sheet you intend to be working on. Sometimes the "active sheet" isn't what you think it is.
