Hi everyone,

I am new on here and have a small problem. I want a command button to copy a range of cells and past somewhere else on the sheet. Simple enough I know, but if I have range("A1:A10") no problem, but I want range(A1:A&H1). I know this won't work, but I want the value to change to whatever i type in H1 to change the length of the range of cells. Hope that makes sense.
Thanks
Gavin

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Hi & welcome to MrExcel.
How about
Code:
Range ("A1:A" & Range("H1").Value)

Sorry Fluff (or anyone else!), I have another question! I want to referance a cell in both parts of the range, but it keeps returning an error now using this code: [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Tahoma,Calibri,Geneva,sans-serif] Range("C" & Range("H2").Value):C" & Range("j32").Value).Select Is this possible or will I have to find another workaround? I also want to add 1 to the value in H2, not sure if this is possible or just do it in another cell on the spreadsheet?[/FONT]

Try
Code:
Range("C" & Range("H2").Value + 1 & ":C" & Range("j32").Value).Select
