Hello,

VBA...

I want to copy a data set to a new sheet 4 times. Each time it paste I want to label each row either start 1, start 2, finish 1 or finish 2 in a new column. So the first time the data copies will all be start 1 and so on. Any suggestions?

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

I see your new to the forum

When looking for help it's always best to provide specific details.

You said:
I want to copy a data set to a new sheet 4 times.

You need to say something like this:

On Sheet named "Master" copy The Range("A1:A35")

And paste it into a New sheet I want the script to make.
Name the new sheet "Excel"


And paste the data where?

You said:
Each time it paste I want to label each row either start 1, start 2, finish 1 or finish 2 in a new column.

Label each Row ??
Do you mean enter Start1 in Range("B1") and then Enter Start2 in Range("C1")
And paste the range below.

And do you want to copy formulas and formatting or only values?
Is the range we are copying only one column Wide?

See we need more specific details like this.



You did not say where this Data set is.

Thanks!!

Basically I want to use my same data source 4 times and add a new field per time I paste it to identify which use of the data it is. Example a row will have a start and stop date with other information. I want to use the start date with the first row of data and do some calculations off of that and the second time use the finish date and calculate data off of it for that.

On sheet 1 I want to copy the entire data set and paste it to sheet 2. Let’s say it pastes 5 columns of data, I would like to add a column for each row (let’s say column 6) that would add an identifier to each row. The first time the data pastes I want to call it “start 1” in column 6 per row. The second time it pastes I want to call it “finish 1” in column 6 per row.

I want to paste values

This is beyond my knowledgebase.
I will continue to monitor this thread to see what I can learn.

I'm not even sure what:

copy the entire data set means.

I normally use a Term like Copy The Range("A1:G42")

Or copy Range Named "MyData"
