# Copy cells

#### Brodito

I am trying to copy cells in a non sequential order:
For Example, I have the following sheet:

In Sheet 1, I have
A B C D
1 A
2 B
3 C

In Sheet 2, I have
A
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 6
7 7
8 8
9 9

I am trying to create in Sheet 1 a formula that allows me to have this result:

A B C D
1 A 1 2 3
2 B 4 5 6
3 C 7 8 9

I copy in Sheet 1 (B1), =Sheet 2!A1; then in (C1) =Sheet 2!A2; and in (D1) =Sheet 2!A3... Until now is fine

But when I copy in (B2), I would like to copy =Sheet 2!A4, not A2... How can I copy "NON SEQUENTIAL" cells; or, is it possible to instruct to copy A1 "PLUS" 3 positions below, incrementing 3 positions (not only one)?

Hope I make myself understood... Thanks in advance.

If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).

Not sure how to do it using a formula, but this should work:
Code:
``````Sub test()

Dim c As Range, i As Long

i = 1

For Each c In Range("A1:A" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
c.Offset(, 1).Value = "=Sheet2!A" & i
c.Offset(, 2).Value = "=Sheet2!A" & i + 1
c.Offset(, 3).Value = "=Sheet2!A" & i + 2
i = i + 3
Next c

End Sub``````

Sorry but do not know how to use the programming you wrote below. Is that done in the developer mode?

Put this into B1, copy it across to D1, then copy this row Down to Row 3.
HTH - Larry.
and now, for the formula! =INDIRECT("Sheet2!A"&COLUMN()-1+(ROW()*3)-3)
