    Talking Using CommandButtons to move rows

    This may be a terrible way of doing this, but I will try to explain and hopefully get some better direction. What I am trying to create is something that is easy to use and will allow the user to move people up and down on a list by clicking an up or down arrow (CommandButton). There are two CommandButtons per row, one in column A and one in column B. Clicking on the Down button on the first row for instance, replaces the range C2:H2 with C3:H3.

    What I do not currently understand is a dynamic way of doing this. Surely I wouldn't have to replicate code for each button would I? I would like for this to be about a list of 30 people (rows) or so. I would appreciate any or all help.

    I'm sure there's a better approach, but this works.
    Copy the entire code below into a standard module.
    Create two buttons or shapes and assign the macro appropriately.

    Probably a better way but this is how I would do it.

    User must select cell in left hand side of range (So if you want to move cells D12:E12 then they must select D12.

    You'll need to make it idiot proof (Put warnings in if user is trying to move a cell above row 1 etc..

    Hope that helps

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. In the end I changed approaches on how to handle the data. This is good for future reference however.
