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

Hi

Are you sure that the data is arranged properly in sheet 2?

Click the button on Sheet 2 for the results.

    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
