Code made in excel 2007, currently working in excel 2013 with no problems other than the issue below.

I'm at a complete loss on this one. The code below works perfectly fine, but only when the code in blue is removed. WHY? How can this be resolved? I'm very confused. I've tried putting the code in red in different formats but nothing seems to work. Any ideas on how to solve this? I need the blue code section for the code to work properly and this is throwing a wrench in my program...

If you hide a sheet you cant then activate it. You couldn't do that manually so you cant with code. However as it looks like you are qualifying the sheet each time there is no need to activate it at all. Just remove the activate line.

Well you were right that does fix the issue. However for the purposes of my code it does have to be activated, and for whatever reason it does make a difference. Even if the worksheet is xlSheetVeryHidden, If I don't eWS.activate line then my function below that checks for the table header will fail and it will create a new column every time the code runs. So I end up with 5 columns of the same data after I start my program 5 times, which is something I definitely don't want!

I've solved the issue by just activating the "Lists" worksheet before the trouble code, it seems to work now. Thanks for the quick response!
