Copy formula using VB code

The formula is there on the H column in the spreadheet.I am pasting data into the spreadsheet from another sheet using macro.We are pasting data from A to G columns.The formula on H will do a vlookup based on value in A column.
Is there a way to automate the formula to all the cells

For example if i pasted data on  A to G in 20 rows .I need the formula on H to be from H1 to H20 automatically.


Please let me know.

Thanks,
Chaitu235

Is there already a formula in H1? If so then

    Range("H2:H" & Range("G1048576").End(xlUp).Row).Formula = Range("H1").Formula

otherwise

    Range("H1:H" & Range("G1048576").End(xlUp).Row).Formula = "=A1"

where you would change the formula to suit.

Can you attach a workbook that has the query results in it?

To do it manually
1.    Select cell G1
2.    Grab the little black dot in the lower right-hand corner and drag it down to the last cell
3.    Release the mouse

To do it via VBA use this macro
Sub CopyFormula()
Dim lngLastRow As Long
Dim lngRow As Long

With ActiveSheet
    lngLastRow = .Range("A1048576").End(xlUp).Row
    .Range("G1").AutoFill Destination:=.Range("G1:G" & lngLastRow), Type:=xlFillDefault
End With
End Sub

Open in new window


Just in case you need them, here are instructions on how to install and use the macro.

1.    In Excel, Press Alt+F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor (VBE)
   
2.    Right-click on your workbook name in the "Project-VBAProject" pane (at the top left corner of the editor window). If you don’t see an existing module then select Insert -> Module from the context menu. Otherwise just select the module.
   
3.    Copy the macro (you can use the ‘Select All’ button if you like) and paste it into the right-hand pane of the VBA editor ("Module1" window)
   
4.    Press Alt+F11 again to go back to Excel
   
5.    Optionally, press Alt+F8 to open the "Macro" dialog window. Select the macro, click ‘Options…’,  hold down the Shift key and type the letter A (or any other letter) and click ‘OK’. Then anytime you want to run the macro press Ctrl+Shift+A.
   
When you close the workbook you will need to save it as an xlsm or xls file if it’s not already one of those.
