    Selecting a range of cells using ActiveCell where the start point is variable

    Hi All

    I'm trying to develop a code that selects a range of cells, copy's and pastes them to another sheet. The problem is that the second set of data is on the same sheet as the first set I can identify where the data starts as the table has "Service" in cell A* with * being a variable as the starting point changes week to week. so in today's book its A180 but next week it could be A150 etc. The bit i'm having problem with is i need to copy from the table the range A* to J* to the end of the table so i've put together the following but i'm struggling with the "Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlToRight)).Select" as its only going to "D*". I've tried recording macros to select the range to J but it just keeps returning the value I've selected. I.E. "Range("A180:J180").Select".

    Hi Holger, Thanks for your response.

    I've tried to implement your code but its selecting the wrong data.

    I've attached an example workbook for you to see the layout of the data set i'm working with.

    The first part of the macro copy's the data under "install" in cols A to J where it ends and the second part is where i'm trying to get it to copy in this example A43:J83 where "service" starts to the end of that table. When I run your code it selects A to J from row 1 and stops at the word "service". I appreciate your help Holger.

    Hi, John,

    thatīs what the code is supposed to do (thatīs what I understood from the post).

    Regarding the area to copy:
