Using an integer to call next values


New Member

I have the following code to copy a select range of cells from one sheet and past it to another sheet when specific checkboxes are checked:
Rng1 = ("A4:I14")
Rng2 = ("A15:I26")

If Sheets("Setup").Cells(nbr, 3).Value = True Then
End If

This works fine but I would like to use a For loop so that I can copy and paste multiple ranges without having to retype the copy/paste command every time.

For instance, For nbr = 1 To 2, when nbr =1, I want to copy Range(Rng1). When nbr = 2, I want to copy Range(Rng2) etc. How can I use the nbr integer in my For loop to increase the "number" that follows Rng?

VBA doesn't allow you to build symbol names for variables in the way you are describing.
You could use If statements or Select Case statements but that's more complicated than it needs to be.

A similar approach that would achieve your objective would be to use arrays.
Something like...

Sub Test()
 Dim asRangeRefs() As String
 Dim nbr As Long
 ReDim asRangeRefs(1 To 3)
 asRangeRefs(1) = "A4:I14"
 asRangeRefs(2) = "A15:I26"
 asRangeRefs(3) = "A27:I38"
 For nbr = 1 To 3
   If Sheets("Setup").Cells(nbr, 3).Value = True Then
      Sheets("Dest").Range(asRangeRefs(nbr)).PasteSpecial (xlPasteValues)
   End If
 Next nbr

End Sub
There's easier ways to populate an array, this example just tries to follow the approach you describe.
