Posted on 2013-01-23

I have an Excel workbook with 2 sheets "A" and "B".  I have multiple pieces of data to pull out and I need to figure out how to increment the Rows and grab the data from SheetA to SheetB and then drag that formula down X amount of rows.

For example I want to pull data from the initial CELL G2 and then every 92 rows after that so G2, G94, G186, Etc... and this happens for hundreds of rows so I don't want to do this manually.

I would appreciate any help.

Assuming you put the first formula in SheetB cell B3 try this

=OFFSET(SheetA!G$2,(ROWS(B$3:B3)-1)*92,0)

copy the formula down

If your start cell is somewhere other than B3 then change the ROWS(B$3:B3) part accordingly

Thanks Barry that is what I a looking for it works perfect for the rows I need to use this for about 150 columns also and I figured I could just copy and paste and the ROWS(B$3:B3) part increments to ROWS(C$3:C3), ROWS(D$3:D3), etc.. No Problem there

When I copy it and paste it to the other Columns though it does not increment the SheetA!G$2, the Number "2".  Is that possible without breaking the functionality of being able to use it for the rows?

Thanks,
Ian

Try making it this version to start

=OFFSET(SheetA!G$2,(ROWS(B$3:B3)-1)*92+COLUMNS($B3:B3)-1,0)

The columns part will increment to G3, G4 etc as you copy across

Hi Barry,

That code is not working I may not have explained very well.

I am starting this particular formula in Cell(B6) and the formulas in the following cell are below

Cell(B6) = "=OFFSET(A!I$5,(ROWS(B$6:B6)-1)*92,0)"
Cell(C6)= "=OFFSET(A!R$5,(ROWS(C$6:C6)-1)*92,0)"
Cell(D6)= "=OFFSET(A!AB$5,(ROWS(D$6:D6)-1)*92,0)"

I need to skip Cell(E6) I was just copying and pasting B6, C6, D6 into F6, G6, H6 and they need to look like the following.

Cell(F6) = "=OFFSET(A!I$6,(ROWS(F$6:F6)-1)*92,0)"
Cell(G6)= "=OFFSET(A!R$6,(ROWS(G$6:G6)-1)*92,0)"
Cell(H6)= "=OFFSET(A!AB$6,(ROWS(H$6:H6)-1)*92,0)"

Skip  Cell(I6) [Example continued]

Cell(J6) = "=OFFSET(A!I$7,(ROWS(J$6:J6)-1)*92,0)"
Cell(K6)= "=OFFSET(A!R$7,(ROWS(K$6:K6)-1)*92,0)"
Cell(L6)= "=OFFSET(A!AB$7,(ROWS(L$6:L6)-1)*92,0)"

I hope I implemented your first part of the code correctly it works perfect for the rows copying down.  

When I copy B6, C6, D6 and paste them into F6, G6, H6 the wrong part of the formula increments.  I get

Cell(F6) = "=OFFSET(A!M$5,(ROWS(F$6:F6)-1)*92,0)"
       INSTEAD OF "=OFFSET(A!I$6,(ROWS(F$6:F6)-1)*92,0)"

Cell(G6)= "=OFFSET(A!V$5,(ROWS(G$6:G6)-1)*92,0)"
       INSTEAD OF "=OFFSET(A!R$6,(ROWS(G$6:G6)-1)*92,0)"

Cell(H6)= "=OFFSET(A!AF$5,(ROWS(H$6:H6)-1)*92,0)"
       INSTEAD OF "=OFFSET(A!AB$6,(ROWS(H$6:H6)-1)*92,0)"

Thanks for your time and Expertise Barry.
