Excel/copying the last columns



Im quite new to VB and would like some assistance in trying to copy the last 8 columns of data into the the last 4 columns of data.

e.g. copying columns "M:T" and pasting in columns "Q"

please note that the last 4 columns contains formulas and would like to retain that in the pasting.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated



Range("M:T").EntireColumn.Copy Range("Q:Q").Entirecolumn

copy and paste should copy and paste the formulas

if you didn't want the formulas copied; only the values it would be


Range("Q:Q").Entirecolumn.PasteSpecial xlValues

QUESTION: Hi Tom, thanks for the speedy response.

I was looking for a VB code, that would do this for me, as the range to be copied would change evry time. Trying to move away from the manual process.

Again any assistance would be appreciated.




that is VB code.  

It isn't manual

>as the range to be copied would change evry time

Then how do you intend to indicate what ranges to copy and were to copy it?  

Sorry, but I responded to the question asked and provided the code to do what you described.  

Unfortunately I won't be available for a while, so maybe you want to address this with Bob Umlas.  

Sorry, but I can only answer what you ask.
