In the below lines the first 6 and the 11th work, but lines 7, 8, 9 and 10 don't work

Do you have to use Sheets when using ThisWorkbook

[myrange] = "Yes"
[myrange].Offset(0, 1) = "Yes"
Sheets("Sheet1").[myrange].Offset(0, 2) = "Yes"

Range("myrange").Offset(1, 1) = "Yes"
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("myrange").Offset(1, 2) = "Yes"
ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1").Range("myrange").Offset(1, 3) = "Yes"

ThisWorkbook.Range("A5").Offset(0, 1) = "Yes" 'Compile Error : Method or data member not found
ThisWorkbook.Range("myrange").Offset(4, 1) = "Yes" 'Compile Error : Method or data member not found
ThisWorkbook Range("myrange").Offset(4, 1) = "Yes" 'Compile Error : Invalid use of property
ThisWorkbook.[myrange].Offset(4, 1) = "Yes" 'Compile Error : Method or data member not found

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1").[myrange].Offset(4, 1) = "Yes"

If i told you to go to cell A1 of a workbook with 10 sheets which one would you go to? You would have a choice of ten cell A1s. All worksheets in a workbook have a cell A1. For that reason the parent of the cell is the worksheet not the workbook.

Thanks

Knew you had to use sheet when using A1 for example but didn't realise you had to do it for named ranges as well seeing as [my range] isn't on every sheet it's only on one sheet, in my case sheet1.
