Default Range(Cell1,Cell2) Error on another workbook controlling some other workbook?


Code:
Sub test()

Dim book As Workbook
Dim sheet As Worksheet

Set book = Workbooks("test.xls")
Set sheet = book.Worksheets("Sheet1")

sheet.Activate

''' Application defined or Object defined error
sheet.Range(Cells(23, 2), Cells(47, 2)).Select
''' the below one didn't return an error
''' sheet.Range("B23:B47").Select

Set book = Nothing
Set sheet = Nothing
End Sub
When I run the Range(Cell1, Cell2).Select on a local worksheet, no problem.

But when I run the command on a local worksheet to select a range of cells on another worksheet, it returns the error (see the comment above)

Hi tinfanide,

It's because your 'Cells' references don't point to the 'sheet'.

BTW, it's not good practice to use names like 'sheet', as you can very quickly get that messed up with '.Sheet'. Furthermore, I see you're still trying to select things. You rarely need to select anything. For example:
Code:
Sub Test()
Dim xlWkBk As Workbook
Dim xlSht As Worksheet
Set xlWkBk = Workbooks("test.xls")
Set xlSht = xlWkBk.Worksheets("Sheet1")
With xlSht
  'do something, eg define a range to work on:
  With .Range(.Cells(23, 2), .Cells(47, 2))
    'do something, eg populate the defined range:
    .Value = Now
  End With
End With
Set xlSht = Nothing: Set xlWkBk = Nothing
End Sub
PS: Your question concerns Excel vba, but you posted it in the Word vba forum. I've moved it to the Excel forum.
