    Post Simple copy and paste macro

    Hi Guys,

    I have found a macro I have been using on my worksheet for a while now,

    I basically copy a value from a fixed location (cell A1) to another cell which has a fixed column ("C") but a variable row.

    The row number is stored in cell A2

    So if cell A2 contained the value 23, I want to copy the contents of A1 to cell C23.


    I have been using this code

    PHP Code: 
    Range("A1").Copy Destination:=Range("C" Range("A2").Value
    I would now like to paste the copyied cell to another sheet rather than in column "C"

    However I still want the range to be dictated by "A2"


    Can this be done?

    Thanks for your help
    Hernan

    Re: Simple copy and paste macro

    Which sheet is the cell A2 that you are referencing on and what is the name of the sheet you are copying from?
    If my solution worked (or not) please let me know. If your question is answered then please remember to mark it solved

    Hi WasWodge,

    The sheet I am trying to reference from is called "Diary" and the the reference is on this sheet

    So "A2" is on the "Diary" Sheet

    Thanks in advance

    Jon

    Hi WasWodge,

    Unfortunately I am getting a different error message-

    "Run-time error "1004"
    Application defined or object defined error"

    Thanks for you efforts though!

    I'm sure there is a simple solution, but can't for the life of me figure out what it is!

    Hi Guys,

    I have had to heavily strip this workbook down- but hopefully it will show you what I am intending to do

    I want to take what is written in cell B7

    and cut and paste it in Week 1 in the same position in the diary- so in theory I can fill the diary for the day and then press a button linked to this macro which will copy and paste it in the relevant diary. And then run a macro which will show what is written in that cell. So in effect making a Two way cell.

    The reason that the value has to be variable is that I will do a look-up up on the cell reference for each different contractor- which will be selected by the user.

    my theory makes sense in my head! apologies if this is a mad mans scrawlings!

    thanks

    It runs perfectly. I dont find any error.

    Btw i just noticed that your workbook_sheetchange code will never enter the first if condition. If you have Ucase(Sh.Name) which will return "DIARY". It will not equal to "Diary".

    But the poster will get the error if they don't put a number in cell C32 and tries running the code
