    Thumbs up Loop until condition is met

    Hi,

    I recently have been trying to write a macro which will copy the ranges A1:37, paste it a few rows below and then copy B1:37, paste it in the column alongside the copied A values and keep looping this process(keeping the A1:37 but changing B to C, D, ect until it reaches QI).

    As it's quite hard to explain, here's the recorded macro of the intial process. I would like to know the commands which will change B into a variable so I can keep moving one column along; pasting it below the previous pasted content- and the correct IF syntax to end the macro once it reaches QI.

    Many thanks

    I can do this, but first can you explain why you want to do it one column at a time? Why not just copy the whole range A1:QI37 to the desired destination in a single command?

    Long story short, it's part of a customer excel document which was imported from a SQL database dump. 'A' column contains the headers to the certain fields which need to be copied first before copying the data in the other columns(each column after 'A' has the customers details in). So the final chunks(A+B, A+C, A+D ect) can be copied across into a word document.

    If you could do this asap I would greatly appriciate it. You would've saved me so many hours of work

    I didn't follow your explanation or your code but I'm starting to get the idea that this is what you want to do.

    Lesson 1 is that code generated by the macro recorder can be instructive but is usually pretty bloated and inefficient.

    Not sure what you're trying to do with formatting but I tried to replicate what you had.
