A Macro to Copy Labels

I have a spread sheet with various product reference numbers and stock levels.

For example.

REF     QUANTITY

100        3
101        4
102        2

This is in excel in two columns.

What I need is to set up some sort of macro that creates a reference number for each of the quantities.( i.e: 3 entries for REF 100, 4 entries for REF 101 etc)
So for example, would create another sheet that shows the following :

REF    QUANTITY

100      1
100      1
100      1
etc
I need to print a label for each reference number for each individual stock item.

Rob.

Hi RobertWhite,

-open the VB Editor with ALT+F11
-then insert a new module from the menu
-paste the code

Option Explicit

Sub RecordToLabels()
Dim intRows As Integer
Dim strName As String
Dim intRecCount As Integer
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
Dim intRecordLabelCounter As Integer

  'assuming your data start at A2 on sheet 1
  Sheets(1).Activate
  Range("A2").Select
  Selection.End(xlDown).Select
  intRows = Selection.Row
  For i = 2 To intRows
    intRecCount = Range("B" & i)
    strName = Range("A" & i)
    For j = 1 To intRecCount
      Sheets(2).Range("A" & j + 1 + intRecordLabelCounter) = strName
      Sheets(2).Range("B" & j + 1 + intRecordLabelCounter) = 1
    Next j
    intRecordLabelCounter = intRecordLabelCounter + j - 1
  Next i
End Sub

-then choose F8 to step
-or choose F5 to run

Thanks for this.
I have tried this but nothing seems to happen.
When I press F5, I get prompted with the "GO TO" reference.

Am I doing something wrong ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi, try this macro:

Public Sub Duplicate()
  Dim lngLoop As Long
  Dim lngQuantity As Long
  Dim lngRowIndex As Long
 
  Sheet2.Range("A1:B10000").ClearContents
  Sheet1.Range("A1:B1").Copy Sheet2.Range("A1:B1")
   
  lngLoop = 2
  lngRowIndex = 2
 
  While Sheet1.Cells(lngLoop, 1) <> Empty
    lngQuantity = Val(Sheet1.Cells(lngLoop, 2).Value)
    While lngQuantity > 0
      Sheet2.Cells(lngRowIndex, 1).Value = Sheet1.Cells(lngLoop, 1).Value
      Sheet2.Cells(lngRowIndex, 2).Value = 1
     
      lngQuantity = lngQuantity - 1
      lngRowIndex = lngRowIndex + 1
    Wend
    lngLoop = lngLoop + 1
  Wend
 
End Sub

Sorry guys.

My excel and Vb skills are not the best.
How do I actually get these macros to run once copied into the MODULE ?

Regards

Either place the cursor inside the procedure, and hit <F5>, or hit <ALT>+<F8>, choose the macro (duplicate) from the list, and hit the RUN button.
