Excel VB to Copy out rows of data based upon Multiple criteria

Posted on 2011-03-17
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello all you experts!

I have a project that I am trying to extract (copy / paste values) of info from a worksheet to another worksheet all within the same workbook.

My data is on worksheet "Test Export" - data labels are a4:bb4
My criteria and where I want the extracted data to reside on on the worksheet "Testing" - criteria labels on b2:d2 - data extracted labels start on a4:bb4 with copied data on a5:bb??

The code I have stops working with a Run-time error 1004: at :
    DataRng = Range(Cells(TopRow, LeftCol), Cells(LastDataRow, RightCol)).Address

Anyone see my hangup?

Sub ExtractCriteriaQuery()
    Dim MaxResults As Integer, MyCol As Integer, ResultsRng As String
    Dim MyRow As Integer, LastDataRow As Integer, DataRng As String
    Dim CritRow As Integer, CritRng As String, RightCol As Integer
    Dim TopRow As Integer, BottomRow As Integer, LeftCol As Integer
    LastDataRow = Worksheets("Test Export").Range("C1").Value
    DataRng = "A4:BB4" ' range of column headers for Data table
    CritRng = "B2:D3" ' range of cells for Criteria table
    ResultsRng = "a30:bb30" ' range of headers for Results table
    MaxResults = 100 ' any value higher than the number of possible results
    TopRow = Range(DataRng).Row
    LeftCol = Range(DataRng).Column
    RightCol = LeftCol + Range(DataRng).Columns.Count - 1
    DataRng = Range(Cells(TopRow, LeftCol), Cells(LastDataRow, RightCol)).Address
    TopRow = Range(ResultsRng).Row
    LeftCol = Range(ResultsRng).Column
    RightCol = LeftCol + Range(ResultsRng).Columns.Count - 1
    ResultsRng = Range(Cells(TopRow + 1, LeftCol), Cells(MaxResults, RightCol)).Address
    Range(ResultsRng).ClearContents ' clear any previous results but not headers
    ResultsRng = Range(Cells(TopRow, LeftCol), Cells(MaxResults, RightCol)).Address
    TopRow = Range(CritRng).Row
    BottomRow = TopRow + Range(CritRng).Rows.Count - 1
    LeftCol = Range(CritRng).Column
    RightCol = LeftCol + Range(CritRng).Columns.Count - 1
    CritRow = 0
    For MyRow = TopRow + 1 To BottomRow
    For MyCol = LeftCol To RightCol
    If Cells(MyRow, MyCol).Value <> "" Then CritRow = MyRow
    If CritRow = 0 Then
    MsgBox "No Criteria detected", "xxxxxxx"
    CritRng = Range(Cells(TopRow, LeftCol), Cells(CritRow, RightCol)).Address
    Debug.Print "DataRng, CritRng, ResultsRng: ", DataRng, CritRng, ResultsRng
    Worksheets("Test Export").Range(DataRng).AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, _
    CriteriaRange:=Range(CritRng), CopyToRange:=Range(ResultsRng), _
    End If
End Sub
