    vba run time error 1004 cannot insert object

    Hi All,

    I am using excel sheet which use macro code to add command button at run time. It was working earlier and now in production it started giving the error 1004 cannot insert object and command button was not added.

    Even now it was working in my machine where in I have MS office 2007 sp2, but customer has MS office 2010 in one machine and MS office 2007 sp3 in another machine, but in both machine it is not working.

    Will this service pack version create any problem?

    Can you all please help me on the same. In case of any more details please let me know.

    Below is the code, which is used to add and command button called "Refresh" at run time.


    Public Sub AddButton(myWS As Excel.Worksheet)

    Dim OLEObj As OLEObject
    Dim Rng As Range
    Dim WS As Worksheet
    Dim CodeMod As Object
    Dim LineNum As Long

    Set WS = myWS

    Set Rng = Range("I2")
    Rng.ClearFormats

    'Set OLEObj = WS.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.CommandButton.1", Top:=Rng.Top + (Rng.Top - 400), Left:=Rng.Left, Height:=Rng.Height * 2, Width:=Rng.Width)
    Set OLEObj = WS.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.CommandButton.1", Top:=Rng.Top, Left:=Rng.Left, Height:=Rng.Height * 2, Width:=Rng.Width * 2)
    OLEObj.Name = "Refresh"
    OLEObj.Object.Caption = "Refresh"

    Set CodeMod = ReportWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents(WS.CodeName).CodeModule
    LineNum = CodeMod.createeventproc("Click", OLEObj.Name)
    CodeMod.insertLines LineNum + 1, "RefreshReport"

    ' code for change event in sheet
    LineNum = CodeMod.createeventproc("Change", "Worksheet") + 1
    CodeMod.insertLines LineNum + 1, "on error resume next " & vbNewLine & "" _
    & "If Target.Address = " & """$C$11""" & " Then " & vbNewLine & "" _
    & " If Target.NumberFormat <> " & """;;;""" & " Then " & vbNewLine & "" _
    & " Application.EnableEvents = False: Application.Undo: Application.EnableEvents = True" & vbNewLine & "" _
    & " Target.NumberFormat = " & """;;;""" & ": Application.Range(" & """A1""" & ").Activate: Exit Sub" & vbNewLine & "" _
    & " EndIf" & vbNewLine & "" _
    & " Application.EnableEvents = False:Application.Undo:Application.EnableEvents = True" & vbNewLine & "" _
    & " Application.Range(" & """A1""" & ").Activate:Target.Range(" & """C11""" & ").NumberFormat = " & """;;;""" & "" & vbNewLine & "" _
    & "EndIf"

    'code for Selectchange event in sheet
    LineNum = CodeMod.createeventproc("SelectionChange", "Worksheet") + 1
    CodeMod.insertLines LineNum + 1, "on error resume next " & vbNewLine & "" _
    & "If Target.Address = " & """$C$11""" & " Then Application.CommandBars(" & """Cell""" & ").Enabled = False:Application.CommandBars(" & """Format""" & ").Enabled = False:" _
    & "Application.CommandBars(" & """Formatting""" & ").Controls.Item(" & """Cells...""" & ").Enabled = False: Else " _
    & "Application.CommandBars(" & """Cell""" & ").Enabled = True:Application.CommandBars(" & """Format""" & ").Enabled = True:" _
    & "Application.CommandBars(" & """Formatting""" & ").Controls.Item(" & """Cells...""" & ").Enabled = True:" & vbNewLine & "" _
    & "If ActiveSheet.Range(" & """C11""" & ").NumberFormat <> " & """;;;""" & " then ActiveSheet.Range(" & """C11""" & ").NumberFormat = " & """;;;""" & ""
    End Sub

    Re: vba run time error 1004 cannot insert object

    which line gets the error?
    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

    Below is the line throws exception
    Set OLEObj = WS.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.CommandButton.1", Top:=Rng.Top, Left:=Rng.Left, Height:=Rng.Height * 2, Width:=Rng.Width * 2)
