Hi,

I'm trying to find the commands to create a column with the heading "Detail" and then autofill the rows below to say "List Upload-"filename"_"current month & year".

For example, let's say I'm working with a file named 'ExecutiveManagers.csv' in March 2011, how can I create a column that says:

Detail
----------
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011
List Upload - ExecutiveManagers_Mar2011

...and on until the last row.

I currently use this to create a new column:

Columns("B:B").Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("B1").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Status"
Range("b2").Select
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "Prospecting"
Range("b2").Select
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Range("B2").Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("B2:B" & LR), Type:=xlFillDefault
Range("B2:B" & LR).Select
Selection.Copy
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False


any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thank you!!

Use this to copy down (assuming you have a column next to this one with data in it)



Sub CopyDown()

Range("B2").Select

Selection.Copy
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Set upperLeftcell = ActiveCell
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Select
Cells(65536, ActiveCell.Column).End(xlUp).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
Set lowerRightcell = ActiveCell
Range(upperLeftcell, lowerRightcell).Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub
