    Macro to copy data from previous column into next free column

    Hi All,

    I have a spreadsheet which is updated daily. Row A of the sheet has the date in it, and every day a new column is created for the that set of data. I have the below code which works at the moment:

    I want to use this same code on another spreadsheet to do the same process (I need to copy and paste 4 columns (A,B,C + D, into E, F, G & H, then tomorrow it will copy E, F, G & H into I, J, K &L etc etc)). The problem I'm having is that A1:C1 is a merged cell, then D isn't (used as a border to separate). So when it is copied I need to select the merged cell columns and column D (i.e. A:C & D on day 1) and paste it into E:H with E1:G1 merged.

    Is there a way to adjust the above code to account for this?


    Thanks!

    Yes, Unmerge the cell in question and then set the merge backup again (Merged are the bane of XL existance, IMHO)....anyway, it get the code - record macro of you unmerging the cell and re-merging- this should give you the code....HTH

    Sorry, just got round to looking at this again.

    Ok, so I can unmerge the cells easily enough, but how do I amend this code to copy the last four columns and past it into the next available 4 columns? My trial and error has failed :/
