Hi Experts using Excel 213

i have the following VBA code which to a certain extent works kind of fine....
I am trying to populate a formula is cell B8 down based on the number of entries in column B2 onwards sheet "Unique List" into B8 and fill down...
so if we have a count of 83 in B2:B85 then autofill said formula in cell B8 (inc B8) 83 times..

Sub Autopopulate()
    
    Dim Rng As Long, Rng1 As Range
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
        Rng = Sheets("Unique List").Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row ' the range of entries
            With Sheets("Broker Level")
        .Range("B8:B" & Rng).FillDown ' the range where the formula is in the first cell
    End With
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Does this work for you?

Sub Autopopulate()
Dim Rng As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set Rng = Range("B8:B" & Range("B2").Value)
Range("B8").AutoFill Rng, xlFillDefault
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

ok i see where the error is.....but not sure how to correct it..

If you change to . Range("A2:A" & Rng).Filldown works fine.....
but my starting point is offset to B8...

In that case qualify the Range("B2").Value with the sheet reference....

Like this...
Sheets("Unique").Range("B2").Value

Rng in your original code is a Long variable while Rng in the code I suggested it's a Range variable.

Try this
Sub Autopopulate2()
   
    Dim Rng As Long, Rng1 As Range
   
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   
        Rng = Sheets("Unique List").Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row ' the range of entries
        Rng = Rng + 8
            With Sheets("Broker Level")
        .Range("B8:B" & Rng).FillDown ' the range where the formula is in the first cell
    End With
   
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

you are using the count of the Unique List as the ending part of the Range in the Broker level range
So for example if there are 83 entries in Unique list (Rng = 83) then your fill down area (range) in Broker Level is B8:B83 which is not what you want.

You want B8 +83 rows down, correct?
Which is B8:B91 (that's why I plus 8 your range)
