Solved 3.0 macro

Posted on 2009-04-07
Last Modified: 2013-12-27
Need to write a macro in version 3 that selects all of column A, copies all data in column A and then pastes over data in column A with TEXT.

My column A contains an equation, and when I am done with the calculations, I need a macro that will overwrite the equations with their current value.  I tried the record macro and ended up with the following code.  

When I originally did the Paste Special (while recording the macro), it worked and I ended up with only values in Column A.  But when I run the macro, it pastes the formulas, not the text into Column A.  Any help is appreciated.

We could try and make the recorded macro work, but the code below should do the trick and is shorter.  Let me know how it works.  Just Paste it over top your current code.


Sub PasteValues

	Dim oSheet

	Dim oRange

	Dim intCol

	Dim i

	' Get Access to Active Sheet

	oSheet = ThisComponent.CurrentController.getActiveSheet

	' Get the Current Range

	oRange = ThisComponent.getCurrentSelection

	' Find the Column Selected

	intCol = oRange.RangeAddress.StartColumn

	' Loop Through All Rows and Paste Value

	For i = oRange.RangeAddress.StartRow to oRange.RangeAddress.EndRow

		oOldCell = oSheet.getCellByPosition(intCol, i)

		oNewCell = oSheet.getCellByPosition(intCol, i)


		' If Numeric paste value, else paste string

		IF isnumeric(oNewCell.String) Then

			oOldCell.Value = oNewCell.Value


			oOldCell.String = oNewCell.String

		End If



End Sub
