Fill down Formulas

I'm trying to automatically fill down my formulas in a macro but it doesn't seem to be working.

My values start in row B9 and don't always go down to a certain row # so I want to be able to copy down the formulas in columns E9:T9 until it finds no more data in column B.

What's wrong with my code?
Dim LR As Integer
     LR = Range("B9" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
     Range("E9").AutoFill Destination:=Range("E9:T" & LR), Type:=xlFillDefault

Declare LR as Long in line 1, and in line 2 remove the '9'.

Nope still not working. I'm now getting a "AutoFill method of Range class failed".

Try:

Range("E9:T9").AutoFill Destination:=Range("E9:T" & LR), Type:=xlFillDefault

Still not working. Now it's deleting all my formulas in row E9:T9 and not copying anything down.

Does it matter that my headers are in row 8 with nothing in rows 1:7?

Can you step through the code and check the value of LR? It sounds like you don't have any data.

Code should be:

Dim LR As Long
     LR = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
     Range("E9:T9").AutoFill Destination:=Range("E9:T" & LR), Type:=xlFillDefault

Open in new window


note that I removed the 9 from line 2.

The code also assumes you have data in column B for all the applicable rows.

Got it working. I was running the code before I had any data in column B. Working fine now. Thank you both for your help!
