Hi there,

1st time post for a novice VBA user here, hopefully someone can advise me :)

I have a row of date in cells A2:FH in a sheet labelled Summary. What I want to do is select the first cell A2, copy the value in that cell, go to another sheet called Database, search for that value in Database (in the first column). Then copy and paste values of Cells A2:FH from Summary to Database on the row where the value from cell A2 is found. Basically I want to update that record in the database. I've already done add to database I think but am struggling with this bit.

Any advice greatly appreciated!

Hello,

why use macro?

You could achieve this by using VLOOKUP. (or index/match)
