Copy Table is not working for filtered data in macro and manually

I am writing a macro that exports my pivot table to Excel by copying it and pasting it into a new Excel sheet. When I run the Macro it works on all instances I need, however 1 specific filter causes the macro to fail at the CopyTableToClipboard function without giving an error message as to why. When I right click and copy the Table Data Area and try pasting it in excel manually, it does not work either for this specific filter.

If I use CopyBitmapToClipboard or the built in send to excel option, both work perfectly fine but for some reason copy table does not.

Here is the Macro I am using:

Sub ET

Set XLApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

Set XLDoc = XLApp.Workbooks.Add


ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("CH01").CopyTableToClipboard true


ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("CH17").CopyTableToClipboard true



End Sub

Here is the failure I get in the case described above.


I have searched for so long in the forum but could not find a solution to my problem.

In Layout, I have Copy/Clone checked. Same for Document > Security, all possible options are checked.

I also do not want to use the normal send to Excel feature as I have additional functionality to implement.

QlikView 11.20 SR16

Any ideas on why this is happening?

Your code works for me.

Can you post a sample qvw that shows the problem?
