I need a macro that will make a new output tab with a new column for the trade history section of the original tabs (pm or rm).  Each row is considered a leg.  I need the new column to denote a number for each leg of any spread type and start over with the next symbol.  An example of what this might look like is shown here in the third column >> http://screencast.com/t/WF0hnvqi8pon

Note that the third column is not there by default and is created based on the spread.  If it is a multi-legged spread, the column shows the number of legs.  If it is a single-legged spread, it only shows one leg.

Could you use a formula instead?  Something like this? (starting in cell C2)


=IF(AND(B2<>"",B2<>0),"Leg1","Leg"&IF(C1="",1,(VALUE(MID(C1&"   0",4,3))+1)))

That certainly doesn't create an output tab.  Macro still needed.

sorry, I guess I don't understand your request.
if you create a new tab on the workbook, what do you want in it?

VBA code to create a new tab:

Sub AddOutputSheet()
    Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    Sheets(Sheets.Count).Name = "Output"
End Sub

Ah, ok
Yeah I was wanting it to extract the trade history section and add a new row to the trade history.

so you're looking to create a new tab called "rm output" that does the same thing that pm output does?
At this point, I don't see the correlation between pm and pm-output so I wouldn't know how to make the rm output's data.

It seems you may need to break this down into smaller tasks (possibly with separate questions) such as:
1) search through the rm sheet looking for TYPE TRD in column C and place the corresponding value into a new tab called rm output
2) add a new column C in rm output called leg and populate it with "LEG" followed by a number there the number starts at 1 and increases by 1 every time the corresponding value in column B is blank

etc.

Yeah, just looking for it to extrapolate that section from either pm or rm and create the new column.
