Problem Pasting a Range of data into a Worksheet_Change

I'm pretty amateur when it comes to VBA, but not to code wrangling on the whole, but this issue has me beating my head against a wall.

I have a page set up to use Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) in order to propagate additional cells in the row with different formulae to provide information about a part number entered into column A.

Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) is something new I'm adding to previously existing code to make it look fancier and bury the formulae in the VBA instead of the cells themselves (like I did in my previous version).

(Aside: The formulae aren't the problem and I don't have unique ones plugged in for all the fields yet, I'm trying to get the Sort Button working first)

I have a button set up on the Page that is supposed to combine like Part Numbers (from Column A) and sum the totals of them (from column B) and then sort them alphabetically and spit them back out into two different places.

This button worked perfectly on my last version, but now I'm having a hang-up using it in conjunction with Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range).

Any assistance would be appreciated. I'm not looking to make "pretty code" yet. I'm just trying to understand what I'm doing/doing wrong as I try to implement my goals.

I have a few ideas as to what is hanging up and why, but it'll save me some time and headache if someone can help me out.

I believe the following should be all the relevant code you should need:

VBA Code:
'Option Explicit requires me to define my variables
Option Explicit
'Define the variables globally
Dim LR As Long, TR As Long, LR2 As Long, LR3 As Long, i As Long, j As Long
Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
Dim ws1Name As String, ws2Name As String
Dim Target As Range
Dim myFormula As String

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    LR = Me.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
    TR = Target.Row
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
       If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A5:A" & LR + 1)) Is Nothing Then
            With Range("A5:Q5000")
                With .Borders(xlInsideHorizontal)
                    .LineStyle = xlNone
                End With
                 With .Borders(xlInsideVertical)
                    .LineStyle = xlNone
                End With
                .BorderAround LineStyle:=xlNone
            End With
            LR = Me.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
            With Range("A5:P" & LR + 1)
                With .Borders(xlInsideHorizontal)
                    .LineStyle = xlContinuous
                    .ColorIndex = xlColorIndexAutomatic
                    .Weight = xlThin
                End With
                 With .Borders(xlInsideVertical)
                    .LineStyle = xlContinuous
                    .ColorIndex = xlColorIndexAutomatic
                    .Weight = xlThin
                End With
                .BorderAround LineStyle:=xlContinuous, Weight:=xlThick, ColorIndex:=xlColorIndexAutomatic
            End With

Just a thought...
Where is this code residing?
I don't believe you can just plonk it anywhere - there's a specific placeholder for it, in the "Worksheet" module; just check that's where you have it...

... and if Target contains more than one cell, then you can loop through each cell, thus.

I believe it is because Target range is not 1 cell. You can debug that line with Immediate or Watch windows to see it.

In immediate window when you get the error: ? target.cells.count
Or add a watch for: target.cells.count

You can do a for each...next to cycle all cells.

VBA Code:
Dim cCell as Range

For Each cCell in Target
    ' Code Here
next cCell

It's in the proper Worksheet module.

I didn't have time to futz with it yesterday after posting. I'm going to try to squeeze in some coding time a little later today. Thanks for the link to an example, though. I love examples. :)

Ok, I got it all sorted. Thanks for the help. Kept me thinking in the right direction. I had to put in that For loop and just copy the cells over instead of copying the range over.

The section of code that I had to change to is this:

VBA Code:
'Sort and then Copy ws1.Range("T2:U LR") to ws1.Range("A5")
    With ws1.Range("T2:U" & LR2)
        'Sort Alphabetically
        .Sort Key1:=Range("T2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlNo
    End With
    'Copy Sorted Range over to original columns
    For i = 2 To LR2
        ws1.Cells(i, 20).Copy ws1.Cells(i + 3, 1)
        ws1.Cells(i, 21).Copy ws1.Cells(i + 3, 2)
    Next i
    
    With ws1.Range("T1:U" & LR2)
      'Then clear ws1.Range("T1:U LR2")
      '
       .Clear
    End With

Instead of:

VBA Code:
    For i = 2 To LR2
        ws1.Cells(i, 20).Copy ws1.Cells(i + 3, 1)
        ws1.Cells(i, 21).Copy ws1.Cells(i + 3, 2)
    Next i

These would also work. Just 2 examples, can be written differently of course.

VBA Code:
ws1.Range(Cells(2,20),Cells(LR2,21)).Copy ws1.Range(5,1)

or

VBA Code:
ws1.Cells(2,20).Resize(LR2-2+1,2).Copy ws1.Range(5,1)
' Intentionally kept -2+1 to show the calculation

Glad it got sorted though.
