Fixing a procedure result.

How come in the following the result is zero, instead of =Base?  I am loading a value in the cell that is named "Base" after this runs.

Range("AT7").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=Base"
    Range(ActiveCell, Cells(Rows.Count, ActiveCell.Column - 1).End(xlUp).Offset(, 1)).Value = ActiveCell.Value

Is there a way to, when a value is added to AT7, a script like this run, and put them in as values instead of a formula?

Interested to both solutions.  Please advise and thanks. -R-

Second part of your question. Not sure about the first, for me it's zero, only if you didn't have a Named range. If you have a named range (single cell, otherwise you will get error again), it will have the correct display value (and correct formula)
   ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = Range("Base").Value

It is a single cell...  and the value is zero when the formula is added, however when I added the actual value.. because there is a value in the column instead of a formula it does not chg all the column to whatever I put in AT7.  I want of whatever is placed in AT7 to copy to the cells that have the =Base in it.   AT7 is named Base.  Does this help? -R-

You are replacing your formula with a value before you assign a value to Base so the value you replace the formula with will be 0. Perhaps you just want:

Range("AT7", Cells(Rows.Count, "AS").End(xlUp).Offset(, 1)).Formula = "=Base"

I am expecting the formula to be copied down, not a value, perhaps I need to add the formula inside the copy down part? -R-

The code I posted will put the formula in all the cells.
