Hello experts,

I have the following situation and trying to solve using vba.

I have few sentences in "sheet1". one in cell "B3" and other in cell "B9" and i have placed two command buttons named "Insert" and "clear" against each sentence, so that when ever "Insert" button is clicked the respective sentence will be copied in cell "D1" of sheet 2, and "clear" button to "clear" the respective sentence. When more than one sentence is inserted i am trying to have one line gap between them.

Please help with the code that is to be written in "Insert" and "Clear" buttons.

Thank You.

Hi Laximinarayana,
Use this to the Insert button for B3:
Code:
Sub Insert1()
Range("B3").Copy
Range("D1").PasteSpecial (xlPasteAll)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub
And this for the Clear button of B3:
Code:
Sub Clear1()
Range("B3").Clear
End Sub
And this to the Insert button for B9:
Code:
Sub Insert2()
Range("B9").Copy
Range("D1").PasteSpecial (xlPasteAll)
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub
And this for the Clear button of B9:
Code:
Sub Clear2()
Range("B9").Clear
End Sub
Hope that helps and works as expected.

Thank you. The code you have sent is working, but the result is not as expected.
I think i have posted my question in wrong manner. Can you please have a look at the following code and tell how to achieve the desired result.

Command button1 is assigned with a macro with following code:

Sub autotext()
Worksheets("Sheet2").Activate
Range("D1").Select
Range("D1").Value = "This is sentence one" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine
End Sub

Command button2 is assigned with a macro with following code:
Sub autotext2()
Worksheets("Sheet2").Activate
Range("D1").Select
Range("D1").Value = "This is second sentence" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine
End Sub

Similarly i have other buttons too. when i click two or three command buttons i don't get multiple lines in cell "D1".
Following is the result that i am trying to get
