Hi - below is code that was provided to copy formulas staring in column F. This code would skip to column and copy the formula until the end. I now need to modify the code so that it starts in column E. What do I need to modify? Below the code is my original questions to which the below code was provided.


Sub CopyX()
Dim i As Long, Start As Long, Finish As Long
Dim rg As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Start = Columns("F").Column
Finish = Columns("YJ").Column - Start
Set rg = Range("F696:F1356")
For i = 3 To Finish Step 3
    rg.Copy
    rg.Offset(0, i).PasteSpecial xlPasteFormulas
Next
End Sub

Original question
Hi, I want to copy the contents from Column X1 to X2, X3,X4 till the end of my last column. X1 starts in column F696 and it goes down to F1356. The last column is YJ. There are two empty columns between each X. Can this be down with a macro, a loop, or code?

X1      b      b      X2      b      b      X3      b      b      X4
100                  100                  100                  100
200                  200                  200                  200
300                  300                  300                  300

Does this work?
Sub CopyX()
Dim i As Long, Start As Long, Finish As Long
Dim rg As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Start = Columns("E").Column
Finish = Columns("YJ").Column - Start
Set rg = Range("E696:E1356")
For i = 3 To Finish Step 3
    rg.Copy
    rg.Offset(0, i).PasteSpecial xlPasteFormulas
Next
End Sub
