Dear Experts:

I would like to copy and paste a selected range as follows:

This range (B2:G2) on the active worksheet is selected manually.

The macro is to copy the selection into the clipboard and paste it
above each row that has bold cell entries.

I have attached a sample file with detailed explanations for your convenience.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Here's your code which starts at row 4, then looks for Bold cells in column B, pasting the header on row 2 one row above the found bold row.

Option Explicit

Sub pasteHeaders()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim r As Range
Dim rCopyRange As Range

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    Set wks = wkb.ActiveSheet
    
    Set rCopyRange = wks.Range("B2:G2")
    
    Set rng = wks.Range("B4", wks.Range("B" & wks.Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    
    For Each r In rng
        If r.Value <> vbNullString Then
            If r.Font.Bold = True Then
                rCopyRange.Copy r.Offset(-1, 0)
            End If
        End If
    Next r
End Sub

Open in new window


PS - if you anticipate a wider header range and want to use SELECTION to dictate the header, just change line 13 to:

Set rCopyRange = Selection 'as opposed to wks.Range("B2:G2")

Dave
