Hey Guys,

I would like to write in column AL the start date and in column AM the end date of the events in column B.
Example:
Allured starts 11/12/05 and ends on 11/10/05
American Geophicist starts 12/01/05 and ends on 12/10/05
American Academy starts 2/26/06 and ends on 2/28/06

How would do this using VBA.

THanks

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

That would not help, because the row where the dates are changes.

I disagree. Rather than:

"That would not help, because the row where the dates are changes."

...from your data, I would have said:

"That's not a general solution - your example picks start / end dates from a single row, whereas my target row will change"

...to which the response would be - either you can detail a regularity about the target rows so we can try and identify them (which I don't think you've done), or you'll have to adjust the ranges manually.

Along that line, perhaps a reorganization of your tables is in order. A formula-based (therefore VBA) solution can be found, but it gets complicated (at least for me) when looking for the row of dates that applies to the rows in each group. Perhaps a new worksheet for each month would work.
