Hi
I have a code that is supposed to just paste values only but it keeps getting stopped at this stage.

The code is as follows
Rich (BB code):
Sub InputWall1()
'
' InputWall1 Macro
'

'
Sheets("Input").Select
Sheets("Wall 1").Visible = True
Rows("3:3").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
Sheets("Input").Select
Range("B2:AB2").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Wall 1").Select
Range("A3").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormulasAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Wall 1").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Clear
ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Wall 1").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Add2 Key:= _
Range("A1:A76"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:= _
xlSortNormal
With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Wall 1").AutoFilter.Sort
.Header = xlYes
.MatchCase = False
.Orientation = xlTopToBottom
.SortMethod = xlPinYin
.Apply
End With
Sheets("Wall 1").Select
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Visible = False
Sheets("Input").Select
Sheets("2020 Sales list").Visible = True
ActiveSheet.Unprotect

End Sub

I get error code as follows, on the line in yellow

Also on the data input sheet (sheet named input), it seems to be adding new rows each time I run the formula, and I cannot see why!
Thanks

Ok, going to take this way back to just to get my head around where we are now.
On a copy of your workbook run the code below and tell me
Where it errors out and what the error says?
What it is doing incorrectly (except any hiding/unhiding of sheets and the save)?
I am expecting both errors and incorrect actions as some bits in the code are guesses.

VBA Code:
Sub InputWall1()
    '
    ' InputWall1 Macro
    '

    '
    'Sheets("Input").Select
    Sheets("Wall 1").Visible = True
    Sheets("Wall 1").Rows("3:3").Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
    Sheets("Input").Range("B2:AB2").Copy
    Sheets("Wall 1").Range("A3").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormulasAndNumberFormats
   
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Wall 1").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Clear
    Worksheets("Wall 1").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Add2 Key:=Worksheets("Wall 1").Range("A1:A76"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Wall 1").AutoFilter.Sort
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With

    Sheets("Wall 1").Visible = False
    'Sheets("Input").Select
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Visible = True
    Sheets("Input").Unprotect
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Unprotect
   
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Range("A4:L4").Insert Shift:=xlDown, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove
    Sheets("Input").Range("B2:G2").Copy
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Range("A4").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Sheets("Input").Range("I2:J2").Copy
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Range("G4").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Sheets("Input").Range("L2:M2").Copy
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Range("I4").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Range("K3").AutoFill Destination:=Sheets("2020 Sales list").Range("K3:K15"), Type:=xlFillDefault
    'Range("K3:K15").Select
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("2020 Sales list").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("2020 Sales list").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Add2 _
        Key:=Range("A1:A93"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, _
        DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("2020 Sales list").AutoFilter.Sort
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("2020 Sales list").Protect DrawingObjects:=False, Contents:=True, Scenarios:= _
                                                         False
    Sheets("2020 Sales list").Visible = False
 
    Sheets("Calendar").Unprotect
    Sheets("Calendar").Range("AR4:BV866").Copy
    Sheets("Calendar").Range("B4").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Sheets("Calendar").Protect DrawingObjects:=False, Contents:=True, Scenarios:= _
                        False
    'ActiveWorkbook.Save
    Application.Goto Sheets("Calendar").Range("B4")
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

morning, ok instead of taking a copy I thought I would make it a bit cleaner, so I copied only the sheets relating to this macro into a new workbook. entered the macro and ran it. lo and behold it works like it should!! from a quick check anyway it all seems to be fine
guess it must be something in my other workbook that is causing the issues, very frustrating!
