    Question vba to create proposals

    Good Morning and thanks for reading. This forum has been a tremendous help, when "the google" hasn't. I am new to VBA and self taught with youtube and these forums, so I apologize if my code is sloppy or poorly written. With that being said, I have a workbook that has our bid sheet. I am trying to create the proposal from the bid sheet using VBA. I have it now so that it's almost workable, but have a few questions.

    1. How do I format this code, shP.Cells(k, 4).Value = "Approx. " & shB.Cells(j, 3) & " " & shB.Cells(j, 4) & " @ $" & Round(shB.Cells(j, 11), 2) & " / " & shB.Cells(j, 4)
    to show "Approx. 150 SF @ $500.00/SF" instead of showing "Approx 150 SF @ $500/ SF" *I NEED TO HAVE THE TWO DECIMAL POINTS*

    2. I need to have the "Title Block" which is the 1st 7 rows of the proposal to be on every page that is needed. I have already set up the header to show info, and maybe I could use that, but the formatting in the headers was poor, if I remember correctly.

    3. I'd like to have automatic page breaks when the Disclaimer section goes to a 2nd, or even 3rd page. How can I put the disclaimer section on the last page, and be on the bottom of the page?

    Thanks again in advance

    attached is part of the workbook, I tried to put the code in, but it's telling me its too long

    Re: vba to create proposals

    Q1
    shP.Cells(k, 4).Value = "Approx. " & shB.Cells(j, 3) & " " & shB.Cells(j, 4) & " @ $" & Round(shB.Cells(j, 11), 2) & " / " & shB.Cells(j, 4)
    Change as
    shP.Cells(k, 4).Value = "Approx. " & shB.Cells(j, 3) & " " & shB.Cells(j, 4) & " @ $" & Format(shB.Cells(j, 11), "0.00") & " / " & shB.Cells(j, 4)

    Q2
    Header (1 to 7) rows is ok.
    It is not clear what is actually required.

    Q3
    If page break is required 3 rows after text "NOTES:"

    Dim Frng as range
    Set Frng = Cells.Find(What:="NOTES:")
    If Not Frng Is Nothing Then ActiveSheet.HPageBreaks.Add Before:=Frng.Offset(3, 0)
    Pl note
    Array formula should be confirmed with Ctrl+Shift+Enter keys together.
    If answere is satisfactory press * to add reputation.

    Hi mdolinger,

    Regarding your second question, You don't need code for it. Go to Page Setup/Sheet Tab/Rows to repeat at top. Select rows 1-7 and that's it.

    Re: vba to create proposals

    thank you both for responding. @DMA thank you for that, I didn't know that existed. @kvsrinivasamurthy to answer your question, I am creating a proposal to use, but the items will vary. Sometimes we will have only one item, so only one page is necessary to get all the information. When we have bids that have say, 20 items, we will need 2-3 pages for the proposal, so on each page, I would like to have the first 7 lines be the same on each page for multipage proposals. It looks like I can take DMA's solution and record it in the vba recorder. As far as question #3, I tried your solution, but it's not performing as expected. I would like the disclaimer to be on the bottom of whichever page is the last page, but I am not sure how to accomplish that. So for instance, if we have 8 bid items, I would want the disclaimer to be on the bottom of page 2, but if we only have 1 bid item, It would be on the bottom of page 1. I guess I need to see how many bid items, make it go to the next page, and use? I am not sure how to do that, but would love some direction. Thanks again for the help.

    Re: vba to create proposals

    This will give you the last printed page: ActiveSheet.PageSetup.Pages.Count

    Combine it with the code given by @kvsrinivasamurthy
