Hi,

I'm looking to write a macro in excel to move specific columns in a file, ie. I want to move Col A in file A to Col E in file B,
Col B in file A to Col C in file B,
Col C in file A to Col A in file B,
etc

Is someone able to help?
Cheers

Hello,

as a starting point, you could fire up the macro recorder, then copy the columns and stop the macro recorder.

What exactly do you need help with? VBA in general or this specific operation in particular?

cheers, teylyn
