Hi,
Can you help me to add VBA code to my macro to clear a region and then add a vlookup (equation) to cells.

Attached is a sample code. It's kind of spread-out but I deleted everything but the applicable portions.  Need to Clear AU7 to AZ1000 and then have code to do what the vlookup functions do now, for each row for columns AV and AW:

=IF(ISBLANK(AA7),"",(VLOOKUP(AA7,$AE$7:$AF$107,2,FALSE)))
=IF(ISBLANK(AB7),"",(VLOOKUP(AB7,$AI$7:$AJ$13,2,FALSE)))

Thanks,
Dennis

This perhaps, though I suppose you may not need to go down to 1000 every time?
Range("AU7:AZ1000").ClearContents
Range("AV7:AV1000").Formula = "=IF(ISBLANK(AA7),"""",(VLOOKUP(AA7,$AE$7:$AF$107,2,FALSE)))"
Range("AW7:AW1000").Formula = "=IF(ISBLANK(AB7),"""",(VLOOKUP(AB7,$AI$7:$AJ$13,2,FALSE)))"

Thanks,
Do you know why I get a compile error: Syntax error when I use a similar approach for the following and how would you overcome it?:

Range("f7:f100").Formula = "=hyperlink(concatenate($al$5,am7,".pdf"),AC7"

Two things. First, you're missing a closing bracket at the end, and, second, you need to double-up quotes in VBA:

Range("f7:f100").Formula = "=hyperlink(concatenate($al$5,am7,"".pdf""),AC7)"
