Macro Help

Posted on 2013-12-04

I have the attached spreadsheet which has about 300 lines.
I need to have the guest names under the employee names, basically leaving me with two columns instead of four. However, for example, guest F1 needs to be under employee F1 and guest L1 needs to be under employee L1 and so on.

I tried doing a macro myself but it seems to be stuck on cell c2. I have 300 lines in my original file and thus am not excited of doing it manually.

All help is appreciated.

Thank you

Can you upload the code you tried and we can maybe point out the error?

The way I am thinking of approaching is to insert a row between each employee line, then copy the guest columns and paste into the employee columns selecting Paste Special and SKip Blanks.

This can be automated as required.

Thanks

Try the code below:
Sub InsertRows()

Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Do Until ActiveCell.Value = ""
    ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
    Selection.EntireRow.Insert
    ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Loop
    ActiveCell.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Select
    LR = ActiveCell.Row
    Range("C2:D" & LR).Select
    Selection.Copy
    Range("A3").Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=True, Transpose:=False

    Columns("C:D").Select
    Selection.Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
    Rows("2:2").Select
    Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
    Range("A2").Select
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic

Open in new window

Glad to be of assistance.

Don't forget it assumes only one line per employee.

Thanks
