Hi all

I have worked long on this project and got through 90 percent of data evaluation and compiling on my own. Which is my strong point. However, copying data into a new sheet is something I have never been good at because I hardly performed this task.

I need help in copying data into a template and creating new templates based on this data set. None of the codes i tried to write worked so I'm not going to try and share it here. I will describe in detail my situation as best i can.

I have multiple data sets in one workbook, lets call this data,xls, sheet 1. And I have a template in another workbook, template.xls, sheet 1. In the data file, sheet 1, there is data in A1:E10, A15:E18 also G1:L10, G15:L20, and so on. The second range in all will fluctuate. I am trying to get the template to copy into a new workbook, sheet1, with the data set (A:E) to be copied into it at C1 and the second at P1 then the template to copy to sheet 2 with data set G:L to be copied into cells C1 and P1 just like the first. But like i said the second data set will fluctuate so formatting will have to stop when the data ends.

I know this is a huge request but can anyone help? I understand its just creating a new workbook. And copying the template into a woksheet, copying data, but i cannot figure this out.

I thought i could attach an excel spreadsheet as an example but it isn't allowed. and image files are too large to attach.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

If I understood correctly, you have a data.xlsx book, with a sheet1 like this:

If the above is correct, then put the following macro in your "data" book.
Before running the macro, you must open your workbook "template.xlsx".
Now yes, run the macro.

VBA Code:
Sub Copying_data()
  Dim wb3 As Workbook, nwSh As Boolean
  Dim sh1 As Worksheet, sh2 As Worksheet
  Dim j As Long, n As Long
  
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  Set sh1 = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")
  Set sh2 = Workbooks("Template").Sheets("Sheet1")
  sh2.Copy
  Set wb3 = ActiveWorkbook
  
  For j = 1 To sh1.Cells(1, Columns.Count).End(1).Column Step 6
    If nwSh Then sh2.Copy After:=wb3.Sheets(wb3.Sheets.Count)
    nwSh = True
    With wb3.Sheets(wb3.Sheets.Count)
      n = n + 1
      .Name = "Sheet" & n
      .Range("C1").Resize(10, 5).Value = sh1.Cells(1, j).Resize(10, 5).Value
      .Range("P1").Resize(4, 5).Value = sh1.Cells(15, j).Resize(4, 5).Value
    End With
  Next
End Sub

This seems to be exactly what i need but the second data set changes. At times there are three rows of data and up to ten rows of data, it fluctuates.

I will attempt this complete example this evening when time comes available.

Thank you.

Yes the MACRO worked fine i just need to adjust it so the second data set only displays the lines of data available.

thank you.

You can change the 5 to a bigger number, say 50 and it should work:


.Range("P1").Resize(4, 50).Value = sh1.Cells(15, j).Resize(4, 50).Value
