I’ve tried to manually copy & paste manually (ie. Ctrl C and Ctrl V), with Excel visible, as format & formulas need to be retained between different workbooks. This is currently working most of the time. The issue comes in when the it’s not working sometimes.
As it is performing for quite some time for quite a number of files (perhaps half an hour or so), it may experience some issues:
Issue 1) Exception from HRESULT: 0x800AC472
Issue 2) Call was rejected by callee. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80010001 (RPC_E_CALL_REJECTED))
Are there any ways to solve this? It should be reliable for all the files.
Get Selected Range outputs a string variable with the range as a string. How can that be used after getting the range?
And sorry, perhaps my question was not clear at the start. To simplify my question, is there a way to copy the data (with formula and formats) to another workbook without using hotkeys? I need to ensure stability for the program.
With regards to the second option (ie. Ctrl C and Ctrl V), I’ve been doing that actually. However, as it needs to do for multiple (about 50) Excel files and Macro files (to be specific, .xls, .xlsx, and xlsm), there have been errors occasionally, as mentioned.
For the VBA option, I’m not very familiar with VBA. However, I tried this with invoke VBA, which works for .xls or .xlsx files:
Sub CopyPaste(ByVal AFileName As String, ByVal ATabName As String, ByVal ARange As String, ByVal BFileName As String, ByVal BTabName As String, ByVal BRange As String)
But when i invoke VBA with an .xlsm file as a file name, it gives the following error:
Invoke VBA: Cannot run the macro 'CopyPaste'. The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.
Are you familiar with VBA yourself? Any advice on how to get it to work on .xlsm without changing the current code for .xlsm? Thanks in advance.
Sorry for the delayed response. Unfortunately, no, I was not able to solve it. I just used an Excel Application Scope within an Excel application scope, and still did a manual Ctrl C and Ctrl V in the end.
Just curious, do you have macros involved in your process? or just xls and xlsx in your files?
