I continually have problems with copying a formula down to last empty row.  This is what I have but it does not copy down. I would appreciates someone helping me.  Would look at C7 and count used rows.


 Sheets("Block").Select
   
   Range("K7").FormulaR1C1 = "= ""#RET"""
    Range("K7").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Range("K7").Select
    Selection.End(xlDown).Select

If you want to copy the formula down from row 7 in column K down based on the populated rows in column C try this.
With Sheets("Block")
    .Range("K7", Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(, 8)).FormulaR1C1 = "= ""#RET"""
End With

Well, I have no idea what does imnorie's code do.

but

This would work.

Sub pasteformula()
Dim RwCnt As Long
RwCnt = Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row
If RwCnt < 7 Then
    MsgBox ("No Data Found!")
    Exit Sub
End If
With Sheets("Block")
    .Range("K7:K" & RwCnt).FormulaR1C1 = "= ""#RET"""
End With
End Sub

imnorie,

Looks like pretty much doing the same thing.

The way you do it is instead of using 1 part range like A1:A5, you are using 2 parts range Range(Cell1, cell2).
While Cell1 = K7, and Cell2 is C& row count, but offset to column K.
So basically the range is K7 to K whatever row count of column c.
Well, and the rest, the formula part is simple, isn't it?

They are similar but the code I posted uses the sheet 'Block' to find the last row of data in column C.

Your code will use the active sheet for the last row.

If the sheet 'Block' is active that's fine but if it isn't there could be some unexpected results.

You can change the macro this way.

Sub pasteformula()
Dim RwCnt As Long, WS As WorkSheet
Set WS = Sheets("Block")
RwCnt = WS.Cells(Rows.Count, 3).End(xlUp).Row
If RwCnt < 7 Then
    MsgBox ("No Data Found!")
    Exit Sub
End If
    WS.Range("K7:K" & RwCnt).FormulaR1C1 = "= ""#RET"""
End With
End Sub
