Hi all

I'm struggling a bit with a Run-time error '6' Overflow.

My code is only able to handle 32.767 cells so I assume the reason is a default Dim As Integer. If so I guees I only need to have Dim changed to Long but for some reason I can figure out how to do this in my For Each loop. And as the macro works fine besides this limitation it would be nice if there is an easy way to do add a Dim As Long.

This is relevant part of my code:

Dim myMonthRng As Range

Cells.Find(What:="Antal Måneder", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Offset(1, 0).Select

Set myMonthRng = Range(ActiveCell, Selection.End(xlDown))

For Each cell In myMonthRng
If cell.Value >= 2 Then
cell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 4
Else
cell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
End If
Next

For Each cell In myMonthRng
If cell.Value >= "Ny Sag" Then
cell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
End If
Next

Hopefully one of you will know a simple way :)?

Thanks,
Martin

Got it to work with this code instead:

Dim myMonthRng As Range

Cells.Find(What:="Antal Måneder", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Offset(1, 0).Select

Set myMonthRng = Range(ActiveCell, Selection.End(xlDown))

myCells = myMonthRng.Count

Dim i As Long

Cells.Find(What:="Antal Måneder", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Offset(1, 0).Select

For i = 1 To myCells
If ActiveCell.Value >= 2 Then
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 4
If ActiveCell.Value = "Ny Sag" Then
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
End If
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select

Else
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Next i
