Runtime error on Validation object

Runtime error on Validation object

Runtime error on Validation object

(OP)
I have the following VBScript code.

Dim xlapp ' as excel object
Dim WSx, WSy ' as excel worksheet
Dim x, y ' as workbook
Dim fso
Dim list1
Set xlapp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim fullpath
fullpath = fso.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName)

Set x = xlapp.Workbooks.Open(fullPath & "\File1.xlsx")
Set y = xlapp.Workbooks.Open(fullPath & "\File2.xlsm")

Set WSx = x.Worksheets("Sheet1")
Set WSy = y.Worksheets("Sheet1")

WSy.Cells.Clear
WSx.UsedRange.Copy WSy.Range("A1")
Set WSx = nothing
x.Close

WSy.Range("F1").Value="Yes/No"
With WSy.Range("F2").Validation
.Add xlValidateList, xlValidAlertStop, , "Option1,Option2"
.ErrorTitle = "Not a Valid Selection"
.ErrorMessage = "Please make sure you spelled the item correctly or select the item from the dropdowm menu."
.IgnoreBlank = True
.InCellDropdown = True
End With


Set WSy = nothing

y.Save
y.close
xlapp.quit

When I try to execute this code, it gives the following error on this line:
.Add xlValidateList, xlValidAlertStop, , "Option1,Option2"
microsoft vbscript runtime error unknown runtime error

Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

RE: Runtime error on Validation object

Hi,

You need to use the numeric values for xlValidateList & xlValidAlertStop, not the Excel constants, for which you need the Excel run-time library.

Skip,
