Hi
I'm stuck on how to have a macro copy and paste something without leaving the cell that the cursor is in

after the sheet opens and the cursor lands on the next empty cell in a, I want to copy what is in H above that row to Z1 but i want to stay in that A cell and add input.
I don't know how to keep the cursor in that A cell.
I have:
HTML:
Private Sub Workbook_open()
x = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Range("A" & x + 1).Select
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = ActiveCell.Row - 8

Selection.End(xlToRight).Select
    ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1").Select
    Selection.Copy

' this is where i'm stuck  the next line doesn't keep the cursor from moving
    Range("z1").Select

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False
        Application.CutCopyMode = False
        Selection.Value = Selection.Value

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Copy A2 to C4:

Code:
Range("A2").Copy Range("C4")
or
Code:
Range("C4").Value = Range("A2").Value
