    Copy paste data, insert rows, insert data and change . to -

    Ok, i hope the title isn't too long or wrong

    Here's the problem, i need to copy and paste 4 columns from 1 sheet to a new sheet. Column A from old sheet to column B of new sheet, column B from old sheet to column C of new sheet, column C to E and lastly D to D (yes, i purposly switch the columns)

    -This point onwards, all reference will be refering to the new sheet

    After that, i'll change the no. format of column C & E from 123.4567 or 12.3456 to 123-45-67 and 12-34-56, starting from row 3. i had came up with this formula

    but i don't know how to change it to macro.

    Then, i'll delete those rows that has the value of BSTN from column B. Insert 1 row at row 3 and insert 3 rows between the 2 rows that got the same value of column B. And i'll have 4 sets of data. (if i insert 1 row at row 3, it will format the new row with the colour from row 2, anyway to disable that?)

    Lastly, I'll key in "#" at A1 & A2, "DB" at every begining of a new set, "DM" for the data and "DE" at the end of every set all at column A and i'll key in "3201" (which i got it from B1) at column B for every DB.

    Please see the attached excel for the sample and the incomplete macro that i had came up with bit and pieces from this forum and recording myself.

    Thanks for the help

    Oh, by the way, any good ways to use this macro? i'm thinking of saving this as a new excel file and when i got the data that i want to sort, i'll move the sheet to this new excel file with the macro and run the macro
