Copying range of cell formulas down a range of cells

deskchains asked
Last Modified: 2012-02-14
Not enough time and/or personal knowledge to piece this one together from all the other questions surrounding this copy past topic....I see it in there but cant put my finger on it.

I have a macro that places formulas in a row of cells.  Lets say the formulas are in cells N8:Z8.  I want to copy these cells/formulas down N number of times based on where values in cell F8 down to F##  are populated/turn null.  So if their are values in cell F8 to F20 the formulas in N8:Z8 would be copied from N9:Z20 - if there are values all the way down to F2356 the formula would be copied to cell N9:Z2356 - so on so forth.

By the way.  I have this working via placing the data into a "table", so that the formula gets automatically populated downward the correct number of times; however I need to get away from having the data stored in a table - whole other issue...

I apologize for my lame attempt for a solution. I failed to read your requirements entirely. ssaqibh's solution is quite slick and should do the trick for you.


Great!  Thanks...
