First off this is my first post; sorry if there are any problems with it. I will fix promptly if there are. I've gained a
ton of information from this forum already so thank you to everyone.
I'm working with MS Excel 2003 and the
workbook will be shared and protected. I've also enclosed a sample of it. This workbook will be used and constantly updated
24/7 with new data.
Short Story: I'm trying to find a macro that will copy data from the areas of B120:E179 and
I120:K179 for example (linked to another worksheet within the workbook) and special paste (Values Only and skipping blank
cells) it to the next available open cell up top where basic data entry will be taking place B10:E29 and I10:K29. I need it
to only copy/paste the rows with data (skipping all cells/rows with no data) and once it is finished coping I will need it to
place an "X" in column M next to the row that it copied data from. I would also need it to reference the data in each row
from B to E and if there is an entry say on B14 to E14 that matches it but if I10 to E29 are blank then paste that
information on row 14. If it does not match or if those columns are full then paste on next available line.
I'm making sense here. This is for a vehicle tracking log between checkpoints. Each driver and info will be listed on each
row. Columns B through E will contain information for each driver: name, badge, #passengers, and vehicle #. The log lists
location, time, and destination for outgoing travelers in columns F to H. Incoming info is listed on Columns I to K. I'm
trying to find a macro or some way to carry over the driver info and times from one checkpoint to another and fill it in
properly on the log while at the same time not corrupting the conditional formats and that. Since this log will be
constantly updating and information being added, I set up the referenced data in B120 and below that if an X is placed in
column M then that data will disappear preventing the macro from reading it and duplicating it over and over on the log.
I understand this is a lot and possibly confusing so I've enclosed a sample of the log and you can see what I'm
trying to achieve. If I left out any crucial information or if you need to know more just ask and I will reply with what you
need. I did several searches and found some examples however they did not fully answer or help me out. Thank you to anyone
willing to give me a hand on this one
Edit: I am adding this to hopefully make it easier to explain what I'm
trying to do.
B10:E29 and I10:K29
B44:E63 and I44:K63
B78:B97 and I78:K97 reference the incoming travelers on the current Sheet2
B120:E179 and I120:K179 reference the
outgoing travelers from Sheet1
B182:E241 and I182:K241 reference the outgoing travelers from Sheet3
Order of Events:
B120:E179 and B182:E241 for any data. (Called B120 & Below)
If there is data
2) Reference each row of
data individually with the data from each row from B10:E29 and B44:E63 and B78:E97 (Called B10:E97)
If a Row of
data (from B120:E179 and B182:E241) is the same data that already exists within B10:E29 and B44:E63 and B78:E97 and columns
I, J, K are empty for that same row then
3a) Copy that same row of data from columns I, J, K (B120 & Below) and
Special paste (Values Only) to columns I, J, K in the B10:E97 Rows.
If the Row of data matches but the I, J, K
columns from B10:E97 are not empty then
3b) Copy the full row of data from columns B through E and I through K
and Special paste (Values Only) to the next empty Row in the range B10:K97. Special Pasting Columns B to E and I to K (B120
& Below) to Columns B to E and I to K (B10:K97) and so on.
For each Row of data that does not match up with data
from the B10:E97 range.
4) Copy the row of data from columns B to E and I to K (B120 & below) and Special Paste
(Values Only) to the next empty Row in the range of B10:K97. The data from one Column (B120 & Below) will be special pasted
to the same column (B10:K97) within the Row.
Once all the data has been Copied and Special Pasted or after
completing each row
5) Place an X in Column M for each row that had data copied and special pasted (B120 &
Below). This X in Column M will make that data disappear.
Now the Area of B120 & Below should be all copied and
pasted to above log and should now be empty with X’s in column M from all the rows that previously had data.
important that the empty rows of B120 and Below be ignored through out this process as they may receive data later on to have
this macro run again on them.
Also: that the Special Pasting pastes to the next available empty row, so that there
are no gaps in the log. Unless of course, it was able to paste into a row of identical data as mentioned in numbers 2 and
If anyone has an Easier/More effect way to update the other sheets outgoing traveler info into this sheets
incoming info I’m open to any ideas. This workbook will be updating with new travelers throughout the day. Again thanks to
all that help.
