Copy and paste worksheet range issues

  • 1.  Copy and paste worksheet range issues

    Hello everyone!
    I'm experiencing the following error while using the action on MS Excel VBO - Copy and paste worksheet range: failed to copy worksheet:error message: 'PasteSpecial method of Range class failed.
    I'm actually using the action MS Excel VBO - Get number of rows to calculate the number of rows to paste and after I'm using the output of this action in "copy and paste..."
    I am trying to copy around 1k rows/2k rows.
    Can you suggest any valid alternative to copy and paste worksheet range action?

    Hi Matteo - try to make it work with a small range first, eg 10x20. If that works, then maybe it's something related to the volume of data.

    Alternatively, in the Queue Reports object on the #Create Performance Report page, there is a code stage called Write Performance Data that might be helpful. You'll need to adapt the code but the technique (to populate an object array that you then write into a range) works well with large amounts of data.
