code runs fine the first time, then needs to be reset

  Asked By: Leon    Date: Nov 14    Category: MS Office    Views: 837
  

The following code runs fine once, then when
I step through a second time it doesn't select the sheet, chart, or
printout the chart until I do a Reset from the Run menu in the VBA
window. I'm sure its easy as I'm trying to learn this on the fly.
Any help is appreciated.

So what _does_ it do? When you step through using F8, does anything
happen at all?

It runs  fine until it comes time  to select  the sheet. It opens Excel
and the workbook and then closes it, without select the sheet,
chart, or printing it out.

Taking out the line:
On Error Resume Next
will help  diagnose the problem!

try this:

Private Sub PrintInboundAbbamonte_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_PrintInboundAbbamonte_Click

Dim App As Object

Set App = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
App.Workbooks.Open ("C:\Documents and
Settings\RPhelps.NGC\Desktop\Inbound1.xls")
App.Sheets("Steve Abbamonte").ChartObjects("Chart 6").Chart.PrintOut
Copies:=1, Collate:=True

App.Quit
Set App = Nothing 'this releases resources and maybe why yours needs
resetting?
Exit_PrintInboundAbbamonte_Click:

Exit Sub

Err_PrintInboundAbbamonte_Click:
MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_PrintInboundAbbamonte_Click

End Sub
