    Avoid selection and select in format number

    Hello.
    I have a code to convert number stored as text to numbers.

    I've read on the web much about to avoid using:
    .Select
    .Selection
    ActiveSheet, etc.

    However, I am unsure of how to avoid using those in my code:

    Sub textTonumber()
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    
    
    Set ws = Worksheets("qry_creategantt")
            
        With ws.Range("I2", Range("I2").End(xlDown)).Select
         
            Selection.TextToColumns Destination:=Range("I2"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
            TextQualifier:=xlTextQualifierDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, _
            Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(1, 1), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
            ws.Range("A1").Select
    
    
        End With
    
    
    End Sub
    Your ideas are welcome
    Cheer

    This is all you need:

    Sub M_snb()
       sheets("qry_creategantt").colums(9).TextToColumns ,,,, -1,0, 0, 0 
    End Sub

    snb. Thanks for your reply.

    I tested your code as follow:

    Sub M_snb()   sheets("qry_creategantt").colums(9).TextToColumns , , , , -1, 0, 0, 0
    End Sub
    Sub M_snb()   Sheets("qry_creategantt").colums(9).TextToColumns , , , , -1, 0, 0, 0
    End Sub
    When I type sheets vba change to Sheets

    In both lines, VBA displays
    Excel VBA, error 438 "object doesn't support this property or method.

    Why in this code IntelliSense is not working

    Moreover, this is my first time I see ", , , ,-1,0,0,0"

    I really appreciate advice on how to fix this problem.

    Cheers

    PLS DO NOT PM; OPEN A THREAD INSTEAD!!!

    1) Posting Code
    [CODE]PasteYourCodeHere[/CODE]
    (or paste your code, select it, click # button)

    Go Advanced / Attachments - Manage Attachments / Add Files / Select Files / Select the file(s) (multiple files can be selected while holding Ctrl key) / Upload Files / Done
    Replace company specific / sensitive / confidential data. Include so many rows and sheets etc in the uploaded workbook to enable the helpers visualize the data and table structure. Helpers do not need the entire workbook.

    To amend your original:

    Sub textTonumber()Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = Worksheets("qry_creategantt")
            
        ws.Range("I2", ws.Range("I2").End(xlDown)).TextToColumns Destination:=ws.Range("I2"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
            TextQualifier:=xlTextQualifierDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, _
            Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(1, 1), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
    
    
    End Sub
    or skip the variable:

    Sub textTonumber()
        With Worksheets("qry_creategantt")
            .Range("I2", .Range("I2").End(xlDown)).TextToColumns Destination:=.Range("I2"), DataType:=xlDelimited, _
                TextQualifier:=xlTextQualifierDoubleQuote, ConsecutiveDelimiter:=False, Tab:=True, _
                Semicolon:=False, Comma:=False, Other:=False, FieldInfo:=Array(1, 1), TrailingMinusNumbers:=True
        End With
    End Sub
    Be as you wish to seem
