Hi,

I have some VBA that copies one sheet from one workbook to another. Now that I have the data in the same workbook. I have searched, but have not been able to find a solution specific to what I need. I would like to copy specific columns from Store Schedule tab to the RC Schedule tab however the columns are not the same and the column names on Store Schedule tab can be in row 2 or 3 or both.  Example of some of the columns that I need to copy (maintaining the column header in the RC Schedule tab).  

From Store Schedule to RC Schedule Column
                  
1. Column A to A
2. Column C to B
3. Column D to D
4. Column E to F
5. Column HG to J

Attaching a sample of the file as well
International-Store-Schedule-Tem.xls

are you sure you want C to B?  There is already a StoreNumber column on RC.

Yes, the store number in the RC tab is different than the store number in the Store Schedule tab.

Question, I have fields that will not have data, how do I account for that in the VBA.  I placed the code in my working file  and where ever there was a break in the data is where the data stopped for that column.

That's generally done by using the lastcell special reference or invoking a Find method to get the last cell in a column (or row).  Do you know how to do that?

Get errror 1004  (application - defined or or object-defined error) on:

Line 21 -  Set rngFrom = wksFrom.Range(wksFrom.Cells(5, 215), wksFrom.Cells(215 lngLastRow))

That should be:
Set rngFrom = wksFrom.Range(wksFrom.Cells(5, 215), wksFrom.Cells(lngLastRow, 215))
