    Copying and pasting data tables with changing row counts

    tables.xls

    Hey Excel masterminds,

    I need your help, I have attached a sheet as an example of what I am trying to do in mine. I want to copy table 4 from "Sheet2" and paste it in place of table 2 on "Sheet1". What I am running into is that the data in table 4 is always changing number of rows and when I paste it over into table 2 it doesnt add rows to table 2 to make it the correct size of the data. Any help would be great

    Thanks,
    Alex

    For our understanding, you have shown us which is Table2. But how will the macro identify which of these tables is table2? Is there some text which will help us find it and then proceed?

    If you go to "Insert" -> "Name" -> "Define" and define the names as "table2" and "table4" for the appropriate ranges you would avoid the problem arlu refer to. You could also have a macro like this to check size of "table2" and adjust it so it fits range of "table4".
