Run Time Error, help!

Hi again,

I posted about this problem 630.html, but never got it resolved.

I'm getting the error "Run-Time error '1004': Select Method of Range class failed".

This is my code:

Sub Directory_Search()

Dim myFile As String, myCurrFile As String
myCurrFile = ThisWorkbook.Name
myFile = Dir("S:\FileServer\Excel\Save FILES In Here\YEAR 2001\01-01\Cathy\*.xls")
Do Until myFile = ""
Workbooks.Open "S:\FileServer\Excel\Save FILES In Here\YEAR 2001\01-01\Cathy\" & myFile

With ActiveCell
.Offset(1, 0).Value = Workbooks(myFile).Worksheets("Application").Range("AI4").Value
End With

Workbooks(myFile).Close savechanges:=False
myFile = Dir

End Sub

it says the problem is with the bold part. I have tried using .value and .formula for the formula part, and also .select and .activate to select the cell, but I'm still getting the error.

Can anyone help me? Thanks

I just figured it out a few min after i posted. I guess that should have been obvious, after i open a file, i guess it would be active :P

Thanks the the quick response though Juan!
