Hello Experts,

Hope you're all well. Before I ask a question, I just want to say this is the best subscription I've ever paid for.

Anyway, can someone please help me compile a macro/program that will allow me to copy and paste from one sheet to another.

Let me explain, in the attached I have two sheets. In sheet one, column B, I would like to copy and paste the information from sheet 2 column A in one keystroke into sheet one column B.

Now, I know you're probably thinking why don't I just copy and paste it myself! However, if you understood how many times I need to do this you would understand why I'm asking for your help with this.

As always, thank you.

Hello,

You could simply insert a formula in colum b sheet 1, like this:
in cell 2:
='sheet 2'!A2

and this will automatically put your data from sheet 2 column A in sheet 1 column B.
And you can drag the function for the entire column.
Hope this helps you
