Thread: VBA, Excel-Copy value only of cells from one worksheet to another worksheet

    Question VBA, Excel-Copy value only of cells from one worksheet to another worksheet

    Goal: Copy the value only (not formulas) of a range of cells (B2:Y34) from Worksheet 6 to Worksheet7

    Existing VBA code:

    Sub Copy_Data()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Worksheets("Sheet6").Range("B2:Y34").Value = ActiveSheet("Sheet7").Range("B2:Y34").Value
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End Sub

    If anyone would be able to point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. I am having trouble pinpointing and resolving the gliche.

    I recorded a macro and did the steps you wanted. This is what I got:
    Sub Macro1()
    ' Macro1 Macro
    ' Macro recorded 3/30/2009 by Ronald A Weller
      Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
    End Sub

    I tested your routine also and with a few changes it will work also; but because you are not doing a copy and paste you can't use undo to cancel the copy.
    Here is the modified version of your routine:
    Sub Copy_Data()
      Application.ScreenUpdating = False
      Worksheets("Sheet7").Range("B2:Y34").Value = Worksheets("Sheet6").Range("B2:Y34").Value
      Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End Sub
    Notice here I changed your ActiveWorksheet to Worksheets, The ActiveWorksheet object is reference to the currently Active worksheet not a collection of worksheets, so ActiveWorksheet("Name") won't work.

    Also you had your object references backwords; which would have overitten the values in worksheet 6 with the ones in worksheet 7. So I changed the object references so that the worksheet 7 object was assigned the values from the worksheet 6 object. Not the other way around.
