This code changes the formulas to ValuesAndNumberFormats on Col A.
How would I convert this to work on whatever column the active cell is in?  To capture however many cell in that column has a formula in it...  I do not believe there will be any spaces.

Plan is to use this in multiple places in a project.  Please advise and thanks. -R-

Sub CopySpecialPasteValuesAndNumberFormats()
'
' CopySpecialPasteValuesAndNumberFormats Macro
' Need to change this to whatever the column is of the active cell
' For reuse throughout the workbook
'
    Columns("A:A").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats, Operation:= _
        xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

Line 7, Rather than

Columns("A:A).Select

Use

C = Activecell.Column
Cells(1,C).Select
ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Select


The first two lines ensure you are in row 1 when copy/pasting.

change columns("A:A").select to

ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Select

if you just want a single column

Change to
Selection.EntireColumn.Select


if you want all the columns in a multiple select.

NB: watch out for merged cells!

Or using similar method to earlier suggestion, assuming no blank cells as per question:

C = Activecell.Column
Cells(1,C).Select
Do Until Cell.Value = ""
Cell.Value = Cell.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(1,0)
Loop

This will overwrite formulas with values and/but will leave formatting alone.

You could also remove the formulas with this one-liner:
Sub CopySpecialPasteValuesAndNumberFormats()
ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Formula = ActiveCell.EntireColumn.Value
End Sub
