Excel VBA

I have multiple Excel report that I run on a regular basis and I have to rearrange the column order.   I know I can record a macro to do this but the columns change.  I was hoping someone might know how to do this with VBA and I can update the code as needed. Thanks for any help.

Hi

the easy way would be something like this:
   Columns("C:C").Cut Destination:=Columns("E:E")
    Columns("B:B").Cut Destination:=Columns("F:F")
    Columns("D:D").Cut Destination:=Columns("G:G")
    Columns("A:A").Cut Destination:=Columns("H:H")
    Columns("A:D").Delete

Open in new window


Will you always change it in the same sequence per sheets?

Create a new Custom List (Excel Options > Edit Custom Lists). Then you can sort left to right and use that custom list as the sort order. When you need to change the order down the track, just edit the custom list.

Good,

Then, one option could be something like the below:
Columns("C:C").Cut Destination:=Columns("E:E")
    Columns("B:B").Cut Destination:=Columns("F:F")
    Columns("D:D").Cut Destination:=Columns("G:G")
    Columns("A:A").Cut Destination:=Columns("H:H")
    Columns("A:D").Delete

a sample was given in my first post.
