There was a thread somewhere, about excel being able to manage workbooks named bet Angel, and other workbooks.

I had a Bot written, which is named Bet Angel t20 Bot.

It works over 10 sheets, and works fine, by itself.

If I open another workbook .. e.g. Sharedprofits.xls I get this error :

Anyone know what might be the problem.

It looks as though you have VBA running, depending on how it's written if there are 2 spreadsheets open it doesn't know which one to work on. You could try naming the workbook as well as the worksheet in your VBA which is something of a pain.

Error 9 occurs when you try and access a range within an array or collection that doesn't exist. i.e. you set an array of 2 runners but your code is trying to access the 3rd element. Maybe your sharedprofits sheet is trying to access data from arrays in other sheets that don't exist for whatever reason,clicking the debug button should take you to the error line.

Many thx for the replies.

Will get the programmer who supplied it, to re-look.

Yes, excel is getting confused over which workbook you mean. It needs to be told exactly what workbook you are referring to at the time.

something along the lines of:

Code: Select all

    Dim BetfairBook As Workbook

    Dim TWB As Workbook

    Set TWB = ThisWorkbook
Then when I open another workbook (this then becomes the activeworkbook):

Code: Select all

Set BetfairBook = ActiveWorkbook
I can then write to either workbook.

Code: Select all

    TWB.Sheets("Sheet1").Range("G8") = "Back"
    BetfairBook.Sheets("Sheet1").Range("G8") = "Back"
