I have a list imported from web page (Sheet 2 in the file). I need to parse the data into a table in Sheet 3. Col. A = A7, A15, A23... in Sheet 2; Col. B = hyperlink of A7, A15, A23... in Sheet 2; Col. C= the number in A4, A12, A20... in Sheet 2; Col. D= A5, A13, A21... in Sheet 2; Col. E= the number of A8, A16, A24... in Sheet 2; Col. F= hyperlink of A8, A16, A24... in Sheet 2
As you can see everything is 8 incremental. I have the first two rows in Sheet 3 manually copied.
Can someone help me to build a VBA? Thanks

I think I almost understand the problem - One question -

What do you mean by 'hyperlink of...' do you mean hyperlink TO?

yes, so eg. A2 is "sparkzck" from A7 in Sheet2, B2 is "http://store.taobao.com/shop/view_shop.htm?user_number_id=75765428", which is the address you will get when you click on A7 in Sheet2.
And also, when I say "the number of", it means I want to extract the numeric number from the string of whichever cell it belongs

mmcompact: I have no issues in sharing points if someone has helped but I couldn't understand your choice for the "Assisted Solution"? How does that assist you in your query?

When I accepted your solution, the site didn't let me assign all the 500 points to you, I must pick one more. So I just put your 20 points to the other guy. I don't know another way to go around it. Kinda new here, sorry
