Dear all,

In Sheet 1, A2 to A100 contains a list of numbers. I would like to do the following by creating a VBA:

1) Copy A2 to A100 from Sheet 1 to Sheet 2 at A2 to A100;

2) Add a text "DL" infront of the numbers in Sheet 2 after the above copying.

Appreciate for your expertise. Thank you.

Cheers,
YC

Why can't spreadsheets drive cars? They crash too often!
Do you really need VBA?
Code:
Sub CopyAddDL()

    Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A2").Formula = "=" & Chr(34) & "DL" & Chr(34) & "& Sheet1!A2"
    
    Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A2").Copy Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A2:A100")
    
    Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A2:A100").Copy
    
    Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("A2").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    
End Sub

Code:
Sub CopyData()
Dim cell as range, ss as worksheet, ps as worksheet

set ss = activesheet
set ps = sheets("Sheet2")

for each cell in ss.range("A2:A100")
  ps.range(cell.address) = "DL"& cell
Next 

End sub

On Sheet2, Cell: A2 add this formula:

="DL" & Sheet1!A2

Then copy this formula down to the bottom of your range on Sheet2!

Dear Joe, Cbrine and Norie,

Thank you very much with the brilliant solutions which really made my day.

Norie, may I know what is the reason for putting Chr(34) before and after DL in the VBA ?

Cheers,
YC

Chr(34) represents a double quote ", which is needed for the worksheet formula.
