Macro to Copy from worksheet and paste to Word Document


Posted by Marc Hennebery on December 07, 2000 7:40 PM

I have a Worksheet that contains 1 record per row. The fields can range from a minimum of A thru K to a Maximum of A thru S. What I am trying to do is copy the fields to a template worksheet, one record at a time, then select the template and copy and paste it to Word. Each record would be a separate table in a Word document. My problem is how to check for data in columns K thru S, and if they are empty, not copy and not paste to Word so that I don't end up with a table with a bunch of empty cells. this is the Macro I am using:

Sub Greenbriar1()
' You must pick Microsoft Word 8.0 from Tools>References
' in the VB editor to execute Word commands.
' See VB Help topic "Controlling One Microsoft Office Application from Another"
' for more information.

Dim appWD As Word.Application

' Create a new instance of Word & make it visible
Set appWD = CreateObject("Word.Application.8")
appWD.Visible = True

Sheets("Drug Regimen").Select
'Find the last row with data in the database
FinalRow = Range("A9999").End(xlUp).Row
' Tell Word to create a new document
appWD.Documents.Open ("I:\Medistat\Greenbriar Station 1 Summary.doc")
For i = 2 To FinalRow
Sheets("Drug Regimen").Select
' Copy the name to cell B2
Range("A" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("B2")
Sheets("Drug Regimen").Select

Try the following code for the copy/paste thing :-

With ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Drug Regimen")
'Find the last row with data in the database
FinalRow = .Range("A9999").End(xlUp).Row
' Copy/paste to "Template" sheet
For i = 2 To FinalRow
.Range("A" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("B2")
.Range("B" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("D2")
.Range("C" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("F2")
.Range("D" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("F4")
.Range("E" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("D3")
.Range("F" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("B4")
.Range("G" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("B3")
.Range("H" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("F3")
.Range("I" & i).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Template").Range("D4")
.Range(.Range("K" & i), .Range("S" & i)).Copy
With ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Template")
.Range("A6").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlAll, Transpose:=True
' Copy the data for the new document to the clipboard
c = .Range("A9999").End(xlUp).Row
.Range(.Range("A2"), .Range("F" & c)).Copy
End With
'Your paste code here
Next
End With

I have assumed that any data in columns K to S would be contiguous starting from column K.
Post again if this is not the case.

Re: Thanks for your help ....

K Thru S was contiguous, and it worked like a charm. Thank you for your help.

By the way, could this be modified to append the data from Worksheet "Drug Regimen" to another Worksheet "Regimen Archive"? Or is there a better method? When the Word reports are completed, printed, and verified, I owuld like a macro to copy all the reported data and append to this other sheet. I apologize, but I am a novice at this, as you can probably tell from my macro. The archive sheet is an exact copy of "Drug Regimen". No formatting of cells or anything.

Try this :-

Sub Paste_to_Archive()
With Sheets("Drug Regimen")
r = .Range("A9999").End(xlUp).Row
.Range(.Range("A2"), .Range("S" & r)).Copy
End With
With Sheets("Regimen Archive")
If .Range("A2") = "" Then
.Paste Destination:=.Range("A2")
Else
.Paste Destination:=.Range("A9999").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
End If
End With
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

If you also want to clear the data from "Drug Regimen" then add this code at the end :-
Sheets("Drug Regimen").Activate
Range(Range("A2"), Range("S" & r)).ClearContents
