Hi All

Quick question here, I was wondering whether it was possible to copy the formats using VBA between two ranges in an anologious fashion to the below (which copies values)

Range(Cells(10, 1), Cells(50, 1)).Value = Range(Cells(10, 2), Cells(50, 2)).Value

ie something along the lines of the below (which doesn't seem to work)

Range(Cells(10, 1), Cells(50, 1)).Format = Range(Cells(10, 2), Cells(50, 2)).Format

Thanks!
Matt

thanks Dave, I was wondering though if I could do it without a copy paste approach though?

you can't :)

The purpose of this line is to remove the copied selection
Application.CutCopyMode = False

So you can hide what has been done, but there isn't an equivalent of the format code that intuition says may be there

Cheers
