# Excel/Shorten code

Question
Hello Tom,I have some code which works fine but i'm hoping there is a more efficient, shorter way of writing it. I have experimented with using a counter loop, but to be honest I got in a right pickle. Below is part of my working code.
I can send sample data if required
I use Excel 2007

Kind Regards
Robert

Sub ArrangeVerticalResultsHorizontal()

lastrow = Cells(Rows.count, "a").End(xlUp).Row
Set RngB = Range("B2:b" & lastrow)

For Each c In RngB

' RngB Data is Names sorted A to Z
' RngB can be upto 40 consequtive team names x 20 teams
' Offset 6 contains football results either W,D,L for Win Lose Draw
' Column A contains match dates
' Purpose of macro to list all scores horizontally
' For each occurrence of the team name
' For each Date

'Some of the code reduced for clarity

If c.Offset(15, 0).Value = c.Value Then

c.Offset(0, 7).Value = c.Offset(1, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 8).Value = c.Offset(2, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 9).Value = c.Offset(3, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 10).Value = c.Offset(4, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 11).Value = c.Offset(5, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 12).Value = c.Offset(6, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 13).Value = c.Offset(7, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 14).Value = c.Offset(8, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 15).Value = c.Offset(9, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 16).Value = c.Offset(10, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 17).Value = c.Offset(11, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 18).Value = c.Offset(12, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 19).Value = c.Offset(13, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 20).Value = c.Offset(14, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 21).Value = c.Offset(15, 6).Value

Else

If c.Offset(14, 0).Value = c.Value Then

c.Offset(0, 7).Value = c.Offset(1, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 8).Value = c.Offset(2, 6).Value
etc
etc
etc

Else

If c.Offset(13, 0).Value = c.Value Then

c.Offset(0, 7).Value = c.Offset(1, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 8).Value = c.Offset(2, 6).Value
etc
etc
etc

Else

' All the way down to

Else
If c.Offset(2, 0).Value = c.Value Then

c.Offset(0, 7).Value = c.Offset(1, 6).Value
c.Offset(0, 8).Value = c.Offset(2, 6).Value

Else
If c.Offset(1, 0).Value = c.Value Then

c.Offset(0, 7).Value = c.Offset(1, 6).Value

End If
End If
End if
etc
etc

Next

End Sub

Robert,

How about sending me a workbook with your source data and another sheet with the output of your macro run against your source data so I can see what you are trying to do.

Never in a month of Sundays could I have achieved your remarkable coding using a counter loop. You managed to reduce my laborious code of probably 150+ lines to about 12. Thank you very much for sharing your expertise. Robert
