Faster Copy And Paste Operations In A Macro

Aug 8, 2007

To speed up copy and paste operations in a macro, I've heard that one can replace the following:


Sheet2.Range("B1:B200").Value= Sheet1.Range("A1:A200").Value
The second code should run faster as the clipboard is not used to store the copied info.

When I tried this, though, I didn't notice any improvement in macro running speed.

Multiple Copy & Paste Operations

Jul 28, 2007

I want to copy several separate sections on a worksheet and place these sequentially in an array, then paste these in order into another worksheet.

I have written a macro to copy and paste between the two spreadsheets, however, this is rather basic as it involves straddling between the two and performing multiple alternate copy and paste operations, as only one section can be copied at any one time.

Match And Copy: Declare The Variables Correctly And Have The Operations Done In A Series Of Do/ Loops Or For/Nexts

Feb 2, 2007

I have a series of operations to carry out and, while I can do the code for each individual one, how to declare the variables correctly and have the operations done in a series of Do/ Loops or For/Nexts. Especially the declaring of named ranges as variables. Also a bit uncertain of the best way to find and coy the match. I have attached a simplified version of the workbook, with explanations on it.

Basically what I need to do is loop through a series of named ranges and then loop through the names in each, match each name with a name in a master list (with a flag as an image), add an e-mail hyperlink to that flagged name and copy both to a new cell.

Excel Macro To Copy Data From Array And Paste To Separate Sheet Paste Special Transpose

Jan 29, 2014

I would like to implement specific cell ranges from two specific worksheets each within 33 workbooks (which all have several tabs) into a summary page in a separate workbook.

The cell ranges are going across my spreadsheet in rows and I would like for them to transpose into a columns depending on the data which I have separated by catergory on the summary page. They are all on the same location in each workbook which is separated by country. The cell ranges are E26:P37 and I would like to transpose them and have them put below eachother without overwriting for my format on the summary page, how I can put this together in a macro?

Create Macro That Can Copy / Paste Or Cut / Paste Rows Into Different Spreadsheet

Oct 1, 2012

I have one workbook that needs two macros.

On the "Complete Backlog" tab of my workbook, I want users to enter in the requested information based on the column header. Then I would like a Macro attached to a button that says "Refresh" that the user would click after they have entered in all of the information. This macro should look in Column M (WIP Status) and if any of the cells say "Close", it should Cut the entire row from the spreadsheet(Ex. A2:M2) and Paste it into the speadsheet titled "Closed Jobs".

This is so that as jobs are closed/finished, they are removed and stored on a separate sheet. The items would have to be pasted so that it pastes into the next available row - not just on top of each other.

I also need another macro that i can put into a button that doesn't "delete" a row from the sheet, but just copies over to another sheet - so that there are two instances in the workbook.

If would look something like: If a cell in "Column G / Director" of the "Complete Backlog" speadsheet is equal to "Snodgress" then copy columns A-L of the same row to the spreadsheet titled "Snodgress" - of course skipping down the rows to the next blank row. equal to "Herr" copy row to "Herr" spreadsheet. equal to "McCormick" copy row to "McCormick" spreadsheet.
and so on.

Optimizing Macro To Run Faster - Timer Code

May 3, 2007

Here is exactly what was described:

A good place to start is to add some "timer code" in your macro. Add a small routine that saves a time value, and another routine that compares that saved value to the current time and displays the difference. At the beginning of a section of code you want to analyze, you call the first routine (which saves the start time), and then at the end of the section of code you call the second routine. In that way, you can determine which portions of your code are taking the longest time to execute. These are the code sections you then focus on, so you can figure out what they are doing that is taking so long.

This sounds like a great tool for optimization...

Copy & Paste Macro Won't Paste

Jul 10, 2006

I want this macro to find in this case "406" in column A which is at the very end of the last block of 160 rows of information.

I then want it to move up 159 rows and copy 160 rows of information underneath the last block of information.

i.e.go to A5280 , then go to a5121, copy rows 5121:5280 to 5281.

It falls over on the very last line of code I can see A5281 selected but it won't paste....

Copy/paste Macro...?

Feb 18, 2009

I have a total of 30 sheets in my workbook. I would like to copy rows 21:1000 from sheets 5 - 27 and paste them into sheet 4 starting on row 21. The data ranges vary within sheets 5 - 27. For example, sheet 6 has data in rows 21:50, whereas sheet 10 has data in rows 21:500. I chose 21:1000 as a safe measure to ensure that all data starting on rows 21 onward gets copied.

I am having trouble thinking of how to create a macro which will copy the data from sheets 5 - 27 and paste into sheet 4 leaving no blank spaces in between pasted rows. Ultimately my goal is to use the filter boxes I have set up in the column headers of sheet 4 to quickly sort all the data pasted from sheets 5 - 27.

VBA- Copy, Paste And Run Macro

Dec 3, 2007

i'm currently building a project with VBS2008, i'm currently stuck on 2 things.

I have the beginning of my code here(it's a button):

Private Sub Button14_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button14.Click
Shell("C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOFFICE11EXCEL.EXE")
AppActivate("Adobe Reader")
'copy stuff wants to go here

'Then i want to paste into Excel
AppActivate("Microsoft Excel")

'Then run a macro

End Sub
Adobe Reader will always be running.

I'm trying to copy all text data from Adobe and paste it into Excel. I'm having trouble trying to mimic pressing [Ctrl-A] [Ctrl-C] and then mimic the paste [CTRL-V] into excel, then running the Macro in Excel.

VBA / Macro For Copy And Paste

Apr 13, 2008

I have a requirment to be able to copy a data range from one sheet to another. However each time the macro is run I need to be able to change the ROW the data is pasted to via user input.

EG First time macro is run, range to be copied from sheet 1 is A1:D1 and then pasted to sheet 2 range A5:d5.

the second time the macro is run I need to tell it to paste the data from Sheet 1 A1:D1 to Sheet 2 range A6:D6.

I guess the ultimate way to achieve my need would be for excel to find the last row of data on sheet 2 and automatically paste to the next free row, but thats way beyond me.

Copy And Paste Macro

Nov 2, 2009

I have an index page with all my employee numbers and a summary page.

All my employees work on a time payment basis.

So for every Employee there is a worksheet with a calculator that determines their working hours.

I need a macro that copies the information on every worksheet to the summary worksheet.

On the worksheets the information is in calls: A53:F53

The Macro needs to paste that information under each other. So for instance employee 255 has a worksheet with the label of 255. His information needs to be pasted in the summary in cells A2:F2.

The next employee is 503, he also has a worksheet with the label of 503. his information is in cells A53:F53 (the same for all the employees). This needs to be pasted to the summary page in Cells A3:F3 (underneath employee 255)

I have 802 worksheets and 1 Summary. All the information for all the employees is in A53:F53.

I tried to do a record macro, it worked but excel gives me an error that sad : Procedure to long.

this is the code that i used:

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False

Every employee has a coding like this..... so you can understand that excel thinks the procedure is to long.... ha ha ha..

I need the macro to paste only values and not the formula.

I would like to have each external file copy the info into the next row and keep a running total at the bottom.
