In Excel How do I prevent an empty cell being created when I am building a list from several sources

In Excel I have written code that works fine as long as the first Administration list, that is copied to build up a combined list (in the sheet Payroll nos), is populated.
If the first list is not populated and the second list is populated my macro 'pastes' the second list one cell down from the first cell (in Payroll nos) instead of in the first cell.
The result is that the final code to remove duplicates and put the results into a master list in column D leaves the master list empty.

As I said the code works perfectly well as long as the first list has some data

First, get read of all the select statements, e.g.

Sheets("P Administration A").Select
    Range("B2:B500").Select
    Selection.Copy

Open in new window


becomes

Sheets("P Administration A").Range("B2:B500").Copy

Open in new window


That's not going to fix your macro, but it's going to make your code faster, easier to read and to maintain.

for your nextrow, after each

nextrow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1

Open in new window


add

if nextrow=2 and len(cells(1,1))=0 then nextrow=1

Open in new window
