Hi all,

Currently my Macro deletes the sheet "Results" and re-creates it.

Is it possible to just overwrite the data on the sheet without deleting the actuall sheet itself???

Sub TidyUp()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    On Error Resume Next
    Set ResultSht = Sheets("Result")
    On Error GoTo 0
    If Not (IsEmpty(ResultSht)) Then
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        Sheets("Result").Delete
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End If
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Info").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    Set ResultSht = Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    ResultSht.Name = "Result"
    Cells.NumberFormat = "General"
    Range("1:4").EntireRow.Delete
    Range("N1") = "Number"
    Range("O1") = "Total"
    Idx = 1
    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    rwIdx = 2
    AreaIsOn = True
    Do While rwIdx <= lastRow
    If Cells(rwIdx, 1) = "No." Then
        AreaIsOn = True
        If Range("J" & rwIdx) = "Stall" Then
            Range(Range("J" & rwIdx), Range("J" & rwIdx).End(xlDown)).Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
        End If
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        Idx = Idx + 1
        Range("N" & rwIdx).Value = Idx
        rwIdx = rwIdx + 1

    ElseIf AreaIsOn = True And Cells(rwIdx, 1) = "" Then
        AreaIsOn = False
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
    ElseIf AreaIsOn = False And (Cells(rwIdx + 1, 1) <> "" Or Cells(rwIdx + 2, 1) <> "" Or Cells(rwIdx + 3, 1) <> "") Then
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Else
        Range("N" & rwIdx).Value = Idx
        rwIdx = rwIdx + 1
    End If
    Loop
    Range(Range("O2"), Range("O" & Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row)).FormulaR1C1 = "=(RC[-5]+RC[-3])/2"
    Range("N1").End(xlDown).ClearContents
    Range("A1").Activate
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Hi,

pls try

Sub TidyUp()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    On Error Resume Next
    Set ResultSht = Sheets("Result")
    On Error GoTo 0
    If IsEmpty(ResultSht) Then
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Info").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    Set ResultSht = Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    ResultSht.Name = "Result"
    End If
    Sheets("Result").Activate
    ActiveSheet.Cells.ClearContents
    Worksheets("Info").Cells.Copy (Sheets("Result").Range("A1"))
    ActiveSheet.Cells.NumberFormat = "General"
    Range("1:4").EntireRow.Delete
    Range("N1") = "Number"
    Range("O1") = "Total"
    Idx = 1
    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    rwIdx = 2
    AreaIsOn = True
    Do While rwIdx <= lastRow
    If Cells(rwIdx, 1) = "No." Then
        AreaIsOn = True
        If Range("J" & rwIdx) = "Stall" Then
            Range(Range("J" & rwIdx), Range("J" & rwIdx).End(xlDown)).Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
        End If
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        Idx = Idx + 1
        Range("N" & rwIdx).Value = Idx
        rwIdx = rwIdx + 1

    ElseIf AreaIsOn = True And Cells(rwIdx, 1) = "" Then
        AreaIsOn = False
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
    ElseIf AreaIsOn = False And (Cells(rwIdx + 1, 1) <> "" Or Cells(rwIdx + 2, 1) <> "" Or Cells(rwIdx + 3, 1) <> "") Then
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Else
        Range("N" & rwIdx).Value = Idx
        rwIdx = rwIdx + 1

replace

Sheets("Result").Delete

with

Sheets("Result").cells.clear


and

ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Info").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)

with

ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Info").cells.Copy sheets("Result").cells

I did the above and get an error here (runtime error 1004)    ResultSht.Name = "Result"

Sub TidyUp()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    On Error Resume Next
    Set ResultSht = Sheets("Result")
    On Error GoTo 0
    If Not (IsEmpty(ResultSht)) Then
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        Sheets("Result").Cells.Clear

        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End If
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Info").Cells.Copy Sheets("Result").Cells
    Set ResultSht = Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    ResultSht.Name = "Result"
    Cells.NumberFormat = "General"
    Range("1:4").EntireRow.Delete
    Range("N1") = "Number"
    Range("O1") = "Total"
    Idx = 1
    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    rwIdx = 2
    AreaIsOn = True
    Do While rwIdx <= lastRow
    If Cells(rwIdx, 1) = "No." Then
        AreaIsOn = True
        If Range("J" & rwIdx) = "Stall" Then
            Range(Range("J" & rwIdx), Range("J" & rwIdx).End(xlDown)).Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
        End If
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        Idx = Idx + 1
        Range("N" & rwIdx).Value = Idx
        rwIdx = rwIdx + 1

    ElseIf AreaIsOn = True And Cells(rwIdx, 1) = "" Then
        AreaIsOn = False
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
    ElseIf AreaIsOn = False And (Cells(rwIdx + 1, 1) <> "" Or Cells(rwIdx + 2, 1) <> "" Or Cells(rwIdx + 3, 1) <> "") Then
        Cells(rwIdx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
        lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Else
        Range("N" & rwIdx).Value = Idx
        rwIdx = rwIdx + 1
    End If
    Loop
    Range(Range("O2"), Range("O" & Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row)).FormulaR1C1 = "=(RC[-5]+RC[-3])/2"
    Range("N1").End(xlDown).ClearContents
    Range("A1").Activate
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

I think you would get the same results if you even deleted the line

Sheets("Result").cells.clear
