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

    Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
    Dim ws1LastRow As Long, ws2LastRow As Long
    
    Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet2")
    Set ws2 = Sheets("Sheet3")
    
    ws1LastRow = ws1.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    ws2LastRow = ws2.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
    
    For i = 1 To ws1LastRow Step 8
        On Error Resume Next
        ws2.Range("A" & ws2LastRow).Value = ws1.Range("A" & i).Offset(6).Value
        ws2.Range("B" & ws2LastRow).Value = ws1.Range("A" & i).Offset(6).Hyperlinks(1).Address
        ws2.Range("C" & ws2LastRow).Value = OnlyNumbers(ws1.Range("A" & i).Offset(3).Value)

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
