You are Not Using the Right Mode
Some cheat codes are mode specific. For example, if you would like to use a Sims 4 building cheat, you need to go into Build mode and open the cheat dialogue box. Then type bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement to unlock objects.
Plus, many cheats require you to hold down Shift and click on the Sim you wish to edit and then follow it up with more steps. So, make sure to complete the exact process to get the command working as expected.
For example, if your Sim is sad and you want to make them happy via cheat codes, first type testingcheats true. Next, shift and click on your Sim and then choose Make Happy.
Try the Game without Mods
Sometimes, mods can be the problem and the reason why cheats won’t work in Sims 4. Disable the mods and test the cheats. If it works at that time, then you need to check whether a particular mod or custom content is causing the problem.
Check if the Cheat is Still Working
Sims 4 has a lot of cheat codes but if you are still getting the “Unable To Execute Command” error, then don’t forget to check if the cheat is still active or not. With more expansions and game packs coming out, there’s a slight chance the devs might disable any code but that won’t be the case for the most popular ones. If the cheat works but isn’t doing its job in your game, it could also be a glitch or a bug. Close the game, restart and try again.
