    Excel 2007 Macro runtime error '1004'

    I had created a macro in Excel 2007 by using the 'Record Macro' function. Up until recently, it worked just fine. Then, without any explanation (and separate from any recent Windows updates), it started hitting 'errors' and popping up the debugger. Upon reaching the limit of my understanding, I thought the best option would be to delete the original macro and re-record it from scratch.
    Now, I get -- "Run-time error '1004': | Application-defined or object-defined error". The vertical bar is simply representing the linebreak/carriage return.
    When I click on 'Debug', it highlights ".Color = -16752384" as part of formatting the font. The color was selected from a pre-defined format.

    What do I do?!?

    Let me know if I need to include the macro text.

    There was a kb article or solution provided for the same kind of error resolution that you can follow below:

    To resolve this problem, save and close the workbook periodically while the copy process is occurring, as in the following sample code:
    Sub CopySheetTest()
        Dim iTemp As Integer
        Dim oBook As Workbook
        Dim iCounter As Integer
        ' Create a new blank workbook:
        iTemp = Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook
        Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook = 1
        Set oBook = Application.Workbooks.Add
        Application.SheetsInNewWorkbook = iTemp
        ' Add a defined name to the workbook
        ' that RefersTo a range:
        oBook.Names.Add Name:="tempRange", _
        ' Save the workbook:
        oBook.SaveAs "c:\test2.xls"
        ' Copy the sheet in a loop. Eventually,
        ' you get error 1004: Copy Method of
        ' Worksheet class failed.
        For iCounter = 1 To 275
            oBook.Worksheets(1).Copy After:=oBook.Worksheets(1)
            'Uncomment this code for the workaround:
            'Save, close, and reopen after every 100 iterations:
            If iCounter Mod 100 = 0 Then
                oBook.Close SaveChanges:=True
                Set oBook = Nothing
                Set oBook = Application.Workbooks.Open("c:\test2.xls")
            End If
    End Sub
