Default Argument not Optional

Hi all,

I am fairly new to VBA and have the following problem:

I have the following sub:

Code:
Public Sub AllocateLinks()
    ...
End Bub
This routing is part of the worksheet wsTurns and I call it as:

Code:
Private Sub btnAssignSections_Click()
    wsTurns.AllocateLinks
End Sub
This however causes an Argument not Optional error message which I do not understand.

Thanks for all help,

Hans

Hans,

"Argument Not Optional" error is normally thrown when a method requires parameters.

Are you sure there are no parameters for the AllocateLinks Sub??

I am also assuming "wsTurns" is an actual Worksheet, not Worksheets (Collection) Object??
If it is actually a Worksheets Object, then this may cause the error.

Regards,
Rob

I am sure there is no argument required by the function. wsTurns is a worksheet object not a collection.

Cheers,

Az.

Does the error occur at compilation or run-time?

The problem occurs at run time.

What line does the error occur on?? Step through the program at run time to see where it falls over.

When you find the line that is causing the problem. Examine each of the objects to see where it is going wrong.
