Excel/index and match issue


Hi Tom
I have sent a workbook to you which will, hopefully, clarify my earlier question.  In it there are six worksheets.  The "termlyassessment" worksheet is supplied with information, via  your earlier index/match formula,  from all of the other worksheets.  
At the moment only the data for "AUT1" has any grades because "AUT2" (Autumn 2) has not yet finished.  When I, or any of my colleagues, am given the next set of data, all I will have to do is copy and paste it into the appropriate sheet  E.G  Year/Grade 7 data will be copied and pasted into PON7.
However when we receive the new data for "AUT2" the data for "AUT1" will have been removed.  So when the new data is copied and pasted, the scores for "AUT1" will disappear in the "termlyassessment" worksheet.  
I am trying to find a quick  VBA solution to avoid this.  
Thank you for your patience.

this code worked for me as I understand the requirement. It replaced the formulas in column B but left the formulas in E, H, K, N, Q intact in your workbook in the sheet termylyassessment.

Sub ABC()
Dim v As Variant, s As String
Dim sh As Worksheet, srng As String
Dim i As Long, r As Range
Set sh = Worksheets("termlyassessment")
v = Array("B", "E", "H", "K", "N", "Q")
s = "XX3:XX1000"
For i = LBound(v) To UBound(v)
srng = Replace(s, "XX", v(i))
Set r = sh.Range(srng)
If Application.CountIfs(r, "<>0", r, "<>_") > 3 Then
r.Formula = r.Value
End If
End Sub
