Hi,

Do you mean you wish for columns [ B ],[C],[D],[E]... to [IV] (Excel 2003) or [XFD] (Excel 2007 onwards) to contain the text "AB"?

If so, this code will apply to row 3:

Range(Cells(3&, "B"), Cells(3&, Cells.Columns.Count)) = "AB"

Open in new window


If that is not what you meant, please clarify.  Thank you.

BFN,

fp.

If you are talking about filling all available cells from column A to the last available column with the text "AB"; here is one way to do it.
    
    Dim r As Range
    Set r = Rows("1:1")
    
    Sheet1.Cells(1, 1) = "AB"
    r.FillRight

Open in new window

If you only want to fill from column A to column AB with some text; here is one way to do that:
    Sheet1.Cells(1, 1) = "Enter Text Here"
    Sheet1.Range("A:AB").FillRight

Open in new window

If you want to request input from the user for the text:
    Sheet1.Cells(1, 1) = InputBox("Enter Text", "Insert")
    Sheet1.Range("A:AB").FillRight

Open in new window

It depends... if we ask again will the question be something different?

Assuming [Sheet19] is active (selected):

Range(Cells(1&, "W"), Cells(Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row, "W")) = "AB"

Open in new window
