Default Adding validation code in excel

In my excel spread sheet I am adding the following code to show a list

Target.Cells.Validation.Add 1, 1 , , , "=$A$1:$A$10"

It gives me the following error message :
Run-time error '1004' :
Application-defined or object-defined error.

I do have data in A1 to A10 cells. I am not sure how to fix this.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Can you check if the following works for you

Selection.Validation.Add xlValidateList, 1, xlBetween, "=$A$1:$A$10"
