Automated form in excel

Hello,

I am trying to generate a basic letter using data from another spread sheet within the workbook. I’ve found code from contextures that is pretty much what I am looking for. However I can’t seem to work out what the code is doing.
Can someone please have a look and let me know how I go about manipulating the code in such a way that it gives me the data I need?

See modified file which attempts to clarify how the macro works. The easiest way to make it work the way you want it is to modify the "finalists" worksheet to only have data in the columns you want to transfer to the "No letter" worksheet.

Say you only want to see the shop and the address data. Then you can modify the first sheet like seen in this attachment and adjust the code accordingly.
