Hi,

I need help on importing data from database to excel.

In excel file, there is a cell (A1 to A4,merged into one) named "ZZZ2".

In c# code after getting the data from database, i used the following code:

Clipboard.SetText(taxyear1_month.ToString());
xlWorkSheet.Paste(xlWorkSheet.get_Range("ZZZ2", "ZZZ2"), false);


It is not working. But if I name a single cell B4 as "zzz5" and use the code:
Clipboard.SetText(taxyear1_month.ToString());
xlWorkSheet.Paste(xlWorkSheet.get_Range("zzz5", "zzz5"), false);
It works.


Please help me to populate data into the merged cell


Regards

Both of these tests work for me

Public Function UpdateRange()
'assign value from a cell to a range of merged cells
On Error GoTo Err_UpdateRange

    Dim strValue As String

    strValue = Me.Cells(16, 11).Value
        'ZZZ2 refers to A1:A4 which are merged
    Me.Range("ZZZ2").Value = strValue

Exit_UpdateRange:
    Exit Function

Err_UpdateRange:
    MsgBox Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & ") in procedure UpdateRange of VBA Document Sheet1"
    Resume Exit_UpdateRange

End Function


Public Function UpdateRange()
'copy value from a cell and paste into a range of merged cells
On Error GoTo Err_UpdateRange
   
    Me.Range("k16", "k16").Copy
   
    Me.Range("ZZZ2", "ZZZ2").PasteSpecial (xlPasteAll)

Exit_UpdateRange:
    Exit Function

Err_UpdateRange:
    MsgBox Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & ") in procedure UpdateRange of VBA Document Sheet1"
    Resume Exit_UpdateRange

End Function

Try

String sValue = taxyear1_month.ToString();
xlWorkSheet.Range("ZZZ2", "ZZZ2").Value = sValue;
