Default Command Button Question

Question from a newbie.

I've created code and debugged it successfully as part of a worksheet object. But when I copied the code to a command button it gives a run-time error. Why can't I simply copy the code from the worksheet to the command button?

It fails at:
    Rows("1:6").Select

and gives the reason as 'Select method of Range class failed.'

Here are the few lines of code before this line:

'
    ChDir "D:\"
    Workbooks.Open Filename:="D:\Export.csv"
' Activate export.csv
    Windows("Export.csv").Activate
' Modify the contents of the file
    Rows("1:6").Select

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi,

Set your code
Rows("1:6").Select
like this
ActiveSheet.Rows("1:6").Select
