I have a form filled out daily with approximately 30 cells spread out all over the sheet. I have a macro that copies each days information to another spreadsheet horizontally (i.e. cell a1 =1/1/05 and the information for that day is in the next 30 columns on row 1). Is it possible to create a sheet that the user could choose a date (maybe from a drop down menu) and have a macro copy and paste the information for that day into a blank form, thus re-creating that days form.

Thanks :pray:

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Sure.

If you copy your form, and add a Data-->Validation list for the date, you can use VLOOKUP in the 30 cells and reference the date in your summary sheet.

Hope that helps,
