Excel: Add Paste As Number to Code

Hello,

I have the following Code:

Sub mac_transfertoPOsummary()
'
' mac_transfertoPOsummary Macro

' This macro copies the information on the PO template and pastes this information to the next available row on the PO Request summary.


Sheets("PO Template").Select
        Range("S12").Select
        Sheets("PO Template").Range("S12").Copy Destination:=Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E7").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0)
        
        
End Sub

Open in new window


I would like to modify this to paste the value as a number. But I don't know how to add this code correctly:
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False

Open in new window

Can you help.

No need to use copy/paste for this just use
Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E7") = Sheets("PO Template").Range("S12").Value

Open in new window


If needed you can also format the cell as a number using
Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E7").NumberFormat = "0"

Sorry, how does this integrate with my offset code?

After a second look at your question I believe what you are after is

to copy the value in cell
Sheets("PO Template").Range("S12")

Open in new window

to
Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E7").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0)

Open in new window


and ensure that it is displayed as a number

This line will achieve that goal. There is no need to use copy/paste in this case
Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E7").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0) = Sheets("PO Template").Range("S12").Value

Open in new window


Additionally if the cell is not correctly formated as a number after this operation you fix this using
 Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E7").End(xlDown).NumberFormat = "0"

Thanks. The code copies everything across correctly - but when the macro is run twice, the data is copied to the same location.

It seems like the formula isn't correctly offsetting to the next blank cell with subsequent macro triggers.

Is working correctly for me??

Try changing it to

Sheets("PO Request Summary").Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) = Sheets("PO Template").Range("S12").Value

Open in new window


This finds the first used cell from the bottom up and so allows for some cells in the column to be empty.

If does not work could you please post your workbook
