Excel copy contents in a specified range to the last row in another range


In worksheet A, there is a range A1: J20
in Worksheet B, there is a range A: J

Each day new content is added to Worksheet A replacing the previous one. For example this content could be A1:J4, or A1:J16. The macro should just copy the latest content, not the whole range, and past it to the last row in Worksheet B.

Day1: copy WS A, range(A1:j4) to WS B, range(A1:J4)
Day2: copy WS A, range(A1:J2) to WS B, range(A5:J7)  (i.e. copy just the content and find last row and paste)
Day3. copy WS A, range(A1:J10) to WS B, range(A8:J17)

And so on......

Assuming you want to copy data from Sheet1 to Sheet2...

Sub copydata()
    Dim ws As Worksheet, ws1 As Worksheet
    Dim lrow As Long, lr As Long
    Set ws = Sheets("Sheet1")
    Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet2")

    lrow = ws.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
    lr = ws1.Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1

    ws.Range("A1:J" & lrow).Copy ws1.Range("A" & lr)

End Sub

Beat me to it...
I like to reference sheet names by their object name instead of the caption, which can change, so...in the VBA Editor on the left you'll see your sheets named as such: Sheet1 (Sheet1), where the first is the object name and inside the parentheses is the text you see as the tab or sheet name.

So...if Worksheet A is the object Sheet1 with your source data, and Worksheet B is the object Sheet2 where the new data is to be appended, then I also like the elegance of the Range/Copy method where the copy destination is on the same line as the source range: Range(something).Copy Destination

Sub CopyData()
Dim lNewRow As Long

lNewRow = Sheet2.Range("A100000").End(xlUp).Row + 1
Sheet1.Range("A1:J14").Copy Sheet2.Cells(lNewRow, 1)

End Sub
