Thread: Copying cells from one sheet to another sheet

    Post Copying cells from one sheet to another sheet

    I have finally pulled together a way of finding my old key number and generating a new unique number then erasing the old key number and the other cells in the row which hold information about that key.

    But i want to copy all the cells which contain information for the old key number to sheet 2 on my excel workbook before the new key number is assigned to the row and the cells are overwritten.

    Can someone help me with some VB script?

    Thanks De_haviland
