  • Macro copy and paste in next blank cell

    I currently have set up a data collection template in excel for Project managers to complete. Once this is returned to me all this data needs to be copied into another spreadsheet (One row per project) ready for importing into excel.

    I have a simple macro that will copy into the first row only but I would like to be able to copy many of the questionaires into the second worksheet before importing to access, to do that the macro will need to copy into the next blank cell.............ideas

    The whole copy paste macro is made up of about 30 of these commands for different cells pasting into the same row of the sheet "SOA_ACCESS_TEMPLATE"

    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Windows("SOA_ACCESS TEMPLATE.xls").Activate
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
    False, Transpose:=False

    I need to add something into the code that will paste in the next Blank cell ?

    Any ideas would be appreciated as I have not had much experience with VBA.

      Re: Macro copy and paste in next blank cell

      There was no response to this one, but this is exactly what I need to do as well. I need to combine two different tabs into one. I have a tab copying over to a sheet columns A-K or something like that, and then I have another tab that copies over, but I want to find the next blank row in column A to paste to. Is there a way to just select the next row down after the first initial paste with Active Cell Offset? and then select the other tab, copy what I need to, select the sheet to paste to and paste? Thank you very much for any insight you could provide!!

        The code below will find the last used row. Use it in your vba code and you can set your target for pasting to:

        Cells(xllastrow + 1, 1)
        to find the first empty row with the focus set to column A.

        Function xlLastRow(Optional WorksheetName As String) As Long 
             '    find the last populated row in a worksheet
            If WorksheetName = vbNullString Then 
                WorksheetName = ActiveSheet.Name 
            End If 
            With Worksheets(WorksheetName) 
                xlLastRow = .Cells.Find("*", .Cells(1), xlFormulas, _ 
                xlWhole, xlByRows, xlPrevious).Row 
            End With 
        End Function
        Check out this link to see an example.
