    Need a macro to copy dates & data from one sheet to an updating archive sheet

    Hello everyone,

    I recently stumbled across a problem when creating a data system in excel for my engineering internship. I need to be able to take the data points and date that the data was entered from an operator spreadsheet (I work in a sulfuric acid plant) and then by creating some magical button/macro, transfer said data and date into another spreadsheet that has a row for all dates with data underneath, and historically plots the data into various scatter plots in a series fashion with one data set after the other from left to right. If at all possible, I also am trying to figure out a way to refresh the worksheet after the data is entered.

    The problem that I'm having isn't that I don't know how to use a macro to copy/paste the data, but moreso create a button that puts the data in an updating series that historically is in order and keeps generating new data points when prompted by the operator sheet, and also keeps on placing data sets down the series (monthly operator sheet) and not in the same location as previous data sets.

    Oh, and the only spreadsheet that is functional is the operator spreadsheet, because operators apparently cannot copy and paste, said my superintendent

    I will be putting up the document as soon as possible, but for now if someone has an idea how to do this, and since I am not exceptional at excel any help would be appreciated. I hope that this will be an easy question to answer!

    @arlu1201,

    I am happy to say that the problem has been solved. I basically defined everything (input values, data range, copy/paste area) and macroed a copy/paste of data with date above into the last column of a range that extended all the way to the end of the workbook. Then, continuing on with the macro, I used the sort and filter>custom sort and sorted the data by the top date column from oldest to newest. After ending the macro, installing a button in the operator sheet allowed me to enter data, hit the button, and automatically sort it monthly; at least until the end of the spreadsheet. I figured I'll be long gone by then XD
