I'm al old 1-2-3 user that's having a hard time figuring out how to use a macro to copy numeric values from a range of cells to the current cellpointer location. Excel XP program help is useless!

Can someone please help? :rolleyes:

Hi

Try using the macro recorder to do your action, then review the code produced. This will give you some idea of the syntax required.

Hi

Do you have a constant range that you are copying from?

Hi

Something like

Range("a1:a5").Copy Destination:=Range(ActiveCell.Address)

I did this...
Range("J1:K1").Select
Selection.Copy
Range (ActiveCell.Address)
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False

I got this...

Compile error: Invalid use of property

If you want to copy the range J1:K1 and paste them where the current cursor resides (assuming that it is not in J1-K1 then use

Range("j1:k1").Copy Destination:=Range(ActiveCell.Address)

Are the numbers in J1-K1 the results of a formula? If so, then you will have to paste the values to the currently selected cell.

Range("j1:k1").Copy
ActiveCell.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
