Copying values in a textbox from one excel workbook to a different workbook with VBA

I have a spreadsheet named a.xlsm which has several text boxes with data in it. I would like to copy the contents of the textboxes to another workbook named b.xlsm. So my steps are:

1) Copy data in textboxes from a.xlsm
2) open b.xlsm
3) find the next empty row in b.xlsm
4) copy data in textboxes from  a.xlsm to the next row in b.xlsm

I can't figure this out. Any help would be appreciated!

Just to be clear are you referring to data in the cells or in textboxes embeded on the sheet?

Sorry for the delay..

The following will work for transferring the data from the cells....
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim Row As Integer
Dim Col As Integer
Dim Row2 As Integer
Dim Col2 As Integer
Dim Update As Boolean
Row2 = 1
Col2 = 1
Updated = False

'Workbooks.Open ("b.xlsm")

'MsgBox 1
For Row = 1 To 10
    For Col = 1 To 10
        If Sheet1.Cells(Row, Col) <> "" Then
            Workbooks("b.xlsm").Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(Row2, Col2).Value = Sheet1.Cells(Row, Col).Value
            Col2 = Col2 + 1
            Update = True
        End If
    Next Col
        If Update = True Then
        Update = False
        Row2 = Row2 + 1
    End If
Next Row


Application.screenupdating = true

Open in new window

If the Worksheet "b" is not already open you will need to uncomment the code to open it.

If you are not sure which will be the starting cell on sheet1 on "b" then put a loop in to find it such as....
Row2 = 1
Do until Workbooks("b.xlsm").Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(Row2, Col No).Value <> ""

Row2 = Row2 + 1

Loop

Open in new window

Choosing a column that has entries in every cell.

Regarding the Textboxes, if there is not too many of them then simply use....

Workbooks("b.xlsm").Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(Row2, Col2).Value = Textbox1.Text

Open in new window


Hope this helps.
