    Loop code through two works

    Hi,

    I was wonding if you could help me out with some code efficiency. I have two workbooks - One I cycle through to find an existing result, the second I paste in the correct place. However I can't get it to work without using "DestWB.Activate" and "SrcWB.activate" to copy/paste once the result is found. This cycling between workbooks is the slowest bit of the code. Is there a more efficient way?

    Re: Loop code through two works

    You don't have to activate each workbook to copy from one and paste to the other as long as you fully reference the copy location and paste location. The following code is an example. It copies A1 from the "SourceSheet" in the workbook containing the macro to A1 of the "DestSheet" in the "Test.xlsx" workbook. Without seeing your two files, it's hard to suggest a solution. It would be easier to help and test possible solutions if you could attach copies of your files. Explain in detail what you want to do referring to specific cells, rows, columns and sheets using a few examples from your data (de-sensitized if necessary). See the yellow banner at the top of this page for instructions to attach a file.
