If, left function, loop, replace

Hi,

I need a piece of code to count rows "A" then do do the following


IF Left(D2,2) = "BR" then W2 = "Paris" else W2 = "New York"

And loop till the last row.

Can anyone put that in structure for me!

Thanks
Seamus

When you say "count rows A" do you mean for each row having data in Column A do this task?  That's what this code does:

Sub doTheWork()
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim r As Range

    Set wks = ActiveSheet
    
    Set rng = wks.Range("A1", wks.Range("A" & wks.Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    
    For Each r In rng
        If Left(wks.Range("D" & r.Row).Value, 2) = "BR" Then
            wks.Range("W" & r.Row).Value = "Paris"
        Else
            wks.Range("W" & r.Row).Value = "New York"
        End If
    Next r
    
End Sub

What you are asking is a little confusing because it seems like you want to loop through the rows but your example uses cell D2. Is this waht you want


Dim r As Range
Dim i As Long

Set r = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(0, 0)
For i = 1 To r.Row

    If Range("D" & 1).Value = "BR" Then
        Range("W" & i).Value = "Paris"
    Else
        Range("W" & 1).Value = "New York"
    End If

Or:
Sub testing()
    Dim lngLastrow As Long
    lngLastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    Range("W2:W" & lngLastrow) = Evaluate("IF(LEFT(A2:A" & lngLastrow & ",2)=""BR"",""Paris"", ""New York"")")
End Sub
