Select the next 1000 rows down and copy to clipboard

In vba, how do I copy down the next 1000 cells down from the active cell, into the clipboard?  When I use the recorder it uses absolute values and I need relative values.  Is there a setting in vba to tell it to use relative values instead of absolute? or is this something I just need to remember?

You can record with relative references instead of absolute:
record relative references...but it might not really work in this case.  This setting is better for replicating formulas/functions.

The better VBA code for this instance would be this:
Sub Copy_1000()
    Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.Offset(999, 0)).Copy
End Sub

Open in new window

Note that I'm offsetting 999 rows because I'm including the current row.
