Hi,

I am moderate in VBA. I have the following code combiled via searching here and some of mine.

AS you can see, I am trying to insert column "A" into a sheet (where col A already exists - but move this to right) This new column would be a combination...such that

= C2&D2

Could you please let me know the coding to insert?

I have tried different codings and each one gives different errors :o

Appreciate it!

Made some improvements on inserting a column. Now I just need to insert the formula!

    Dim lEndRow As Long, lStartRow As Long
    Dim FormSh As Worksheet: Set FormSh = Sheets("GL Summary")
    
    With FormSh
    Set BaseWks = ActiveSheet
    
    Range("A1").Activate
    ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Insert
    Range("A1").Value = "Unique"
    
    lStartRow = .Range("A2").Row
    lEndRow = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    'For n = lStartRow To lEndRow
        


        

   ' Next
    End With

Does this work for you?
Sub x()

Dim lEndRow As Long, lStartRow As Long
Dim FormSh As Worksheet: Set FormSh = Sheets("GL Summary")
Dim BaseWks As Worksheet

With FormSh
    Set BaseWks = ActiveSheet
    Range("A1").EntireColumn.Insert
    Range("A1").Value = "Unique"
    lStartRow = .Range("A2").Row
    lEndRow = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    .Range("B2", .Range("B" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Offset(, -1).Formula = "=C2&D2"
End With

End Sub

For those who are looking for solution, my solution somehow overwrote my heading title, so I moved the 'naming' down

    Set BaseWks = ActiveSheet
    
    Range("A1").Activate
    ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Insert
  
    LastRow = BaseWks.UsedRange.Rows.Count - BaseWks.UsedRange.Row + 1
    
    n = 1
    
    For n = BaseWks.UsedRange.Row To LastRow
        BaseWks.Cells(n, "A").Formula = Range("D" & n).Value & Range("E" & n).Value
    Next n
    
    Range("A1").Value = "Unique"                                            'It renames it here
    BaseWks.Columns.AutoFit
