Hi All,

I want to create a drop down menu in a field with reference values, and, depnding on the value selected, move the row to a different tab in the workbook.

Is this possible?  How would you suggest accomplishing?

Thanks,
Matt

Try this macro. You will have to complete the status assignments then run the macro.
Private Sub moverows()
Set stcol = ActiveSheet.Rows(1).Find("Status")
sr = ActiveSheet.Range("A65535").End(xlUp).Row
i = 2
Do
    Set cel = Cells(i, stcol.Column)
    If cel.Value <> ActiveSheet.Name Then
        cel.EntireRow.Copy Sheets(cel.Value).Rows(Sheets(cel.Value).Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row)
        cel.EntireRow.Delete
        i = i - 1
        sr = sr - 1

    End If
    i = i + 1
Loop While i <= sr
End Sub

Open in new window


I had considered moving the row as soon as the status was selected but the decided against it as it may cause problems, (eg if someone selects a wrong value it would have moved the row immediately to the selected sheet and will have to be moved back causing too much nuisance).

Matt: Could you please confirm if the above worked for you as I had also worked on the above and I have the sample file ready. My code using a different logic though.
