Excel/Lookup Copy and Paste

Question
Hi Jan

Me again, it's just in reference to your previous answer (http://en.allexperts.com/q/Excel-1059/2014/12/vba-lookup-copy-paste.htm), the macro worked well only problem is I've found I need it to clear the whole row before copying onto on the mastersheet. Because if the data thats copied is a smaller range that whats on the mastersheet it will leave the remaining codes.

Also is a way of reversing the macro so the copy and pasting goes in the other direction (from Master sheet to Editing sheet)

Answer
Hi Ben,

Sure. See if this does the trick:

Sub CopyInfo()
   Dim oCell As Range
   Dim oTarget As Range

   For Each oCell In Worksheets("Master sheet").Range("A2:A12")
       If Len(oCell.Value) > 0 Then
         Set oTarget = Nothing
         Set oTarget = Worksheets("Editing Sheet").UsedRange.Rows(8).Find(oCell.Value)
         If Not oTarget Is Nothing Then
         If Application.CountA(oCell.EntireColumn) > 1 Then
         oTarget.Offset(3).Resize(100).ClearContents
         oCell.Offset(5).Resize(Application.CountA(oCell.EntireRow) - 5).Copy
         oTarget.Offset(3).PasteSpecial xlValues, , , True
         End If
         End If
       End If
   Next
End Sub
