I am using a line in VBA:

ActiveCell = strVBELN

Why when it hits this line would it empty the cell?  and now strVBELN is = ""

If strVBELN is blank the cell will become blank.

Depending on your needs you may want to do something like

If Trim(strBLEVN) <> "" Then
    ActiveCell = strVBELN
End If

So how do I make the ActiveCell = strVBELN, without removing it?

I don't understand. When you say "without removing it", what is the "it" you are referring to?

Maybe you can describe the situation. Does the activecell already have something in it? Do you want to replace what's in it or do you want to append strVBELN to it?

RWayneH, it sounds like you need to use Martin Liss' suggested code that checks to see if strBLEVN is empty. If it's empty then it won't do anything to the active cell. However, if it's not empty then it will assign its value to the active cell.

Here is what I am doing.  It is not assigning the value that is in A2...   strVBELN    (I see a typo in your reply BL?  )
It is skipping over Ln15

Sub GoThruListOfSalesOrders()
sessChoice = "QEC"  'variables used by TESTSAP function
connChoice = "900"
If TestSAP = False Then Exit Sub

Sheets("ListPg").Select
Range("A2").Select
If ActiveCell = "" Then
    MsgBox ("Either list is done, or list was blank.  List of SalesOrder should beginning in cell A2")
    GoTo 200
End If

Do While Not ActiveCell = ""
    If Trim(strVBELN) <> "" Then
    ActiveCell = strVBELN
    End If
   
    session.findById("wnd[0]/tbar[0]/okcd").Text = "/nVA03" 'enter tcode in shortcut field
    session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 0  'press enter
    session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtVBAK-VBELN").Text = strVBELN
    session.findById("wnd[0]").sendVKey 0  'press enter
    Call GetDataFromSOLN
Loop
200
End Sub

Open in new window

Is strVBELN the name of a cell?
