Question
Hi Tom,

Yesterday you wrote this code for me and I found that it works. However it copies also the format from the original sheet to the destination sheet. Is there a way to add to the code for it to not copy the formatting or to maybe change the formatting to a desired type. For example in the original sheet it is bold and in 12pt where as I would like it to not be bold and 10pt in the destination sheet.

the code is:

Sub Consolodate()

Dim shDest As Worksheet, shSource As Worksheet
Dim lastrow As Long, r As Range
Set shDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Consol.")
Set shSource = ActiveSheet
Set r = shSource.Range("C6:C18")
r.Copy
lastrow = shDest.Cells(shDest.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1
shDest.Cells(lastrow, "A").PasteSpecial Transpose:=True
Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub

Thank you

Regards

M

Answer
Monique,

it would probably be easiest to just format the destination sheet the way you want it and then not copy the format.  

Sub Consolodate()

Dim shDest As Worksheet, shSource As Worksheet
Dim lastrow As Long, r As Range
Set shDest = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Consol.")
Set shSource = ActiveSheet
Set r = shSource.Range("C6:C18")
r.Copy
lastrow = shDest.Cells(shDest.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1
shDest.Cells(lastrow, "A").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Transpose:=True
Application.CutCopyMode = False

End Sub

Let me know if you want to apply formatting instead of this approach
