Hi Everyone

I want to write down a code which activates a specific .xls file, copies some cells and pastes them to the current excel sheet that I have. How can I do that??? Please help. I tried this

Workbooks("DesignTable1").Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate

and the result is a MsgBox "Script out of range"

What do I do wrong???


:(:(:(:(

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Welcome to the Board.

Just guessing, but try:

Workbooks("DesignTable1.xls").Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate

To open the workbook use the Open method. If you record a macro while doing it manually you will get the necessary code.

It worked
the answer to the problem is

Workbooks.Open Filename:="DesignTable1.xlsx"
