"Out of Memory" error running Sub procedure


View products that this article applies to.

Symptoms

If you run a Sub procedure that uses the Cells property in Microsoft Excel, you may receive the following error message:
Run-time error '450':
Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment
You may receive this error message even though the procedure ran successfully in versions of Excel that were earlier than Excel 97.

Cause

This behavior may occur if you incorrectly use the Cells property. For example, the following Sub procedure runs without error in versions of Excel that are earlier than Excel 97, but generates a run-time error in Microsoft Excel 2002 and later versions of Excel:
Sub Cells_Test1()

   For i = 1 To 5
      For j = 1 To 6
         ActiveSheet.Cells.Value(i, 7) = _
         ActiveSheet.Cells.Value(i, 7) + ActiveSheet.Cells.Value(i, j)
      Next
    Next
End Sub

Sub Cells_Test2()

   For i = 1 To 5
      For j = 1 To 6
         ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 7).Value = _
         ActiveSheet.Cells(i, 7).Value + ActiveSheet.Cells(i, j).Value
      Next
    Next

End Sub
