Hello Experts,

I am feeling stupid - I need some help with something that is escaping me.

I want to copy all data from workbook 1, sheet 1, usedrange, to workbook2, sheet 1 -
however I want to only copy cells that contain an integer and skip any cell that contains a formula.  All cells are locked and all integers are positive.
My usedrange = ("D2:AA60")

The reason I am doing this is because the sheets are identical - however, I have modified the formulas in workbook 2 compared to workbook 1 - and I do not want to overwrite them.

Thank you,
Michael

Hi,

You could use this function to determine formula

Function IsFormula(rng As Range)
If rng.HasFormula Then IsFormula = True
End Function

Looping through the cells like
Sub DoTheJob()
Dim c As Range
Set MyUsedRange = Range("D2:d6")
For Each c In MyUsedRange
   If c.HasFormula = False Then
      c.Copy Destination:=Worksheets("Sheet2").Range(c.Address)
   End If
Next

End Sub

Open in new window

You might use ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants) to identify cells that have values other than formulas in them. Refer to Microsoft MSDN Help for full syntax.

Unless you really mean that if a cell contains "abc" or other text that you don't want to copy it then this should do what you want. Change the "Sheet2" destination to reflect the destination workbook and sheet.

    Range("D2:AA60").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Sheets("Sheet2").Select
    Range("D2:AA60").Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False

And if you do want to skip non-numerics you can do this.


Dim c As Range

For Each c In Sheets("Sheet1").Range("D2:AA60")
    If IsNumeric(c) Then
        c.Copy
        Sheets("Sheet2").Range(c.Address).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
            :=False, Transpose:=False
    End If
Next
