Start the loop again when finding a duplicate in the same cell

I have a Excel file, its look like:
BeforeAfter the macros, this will be the end results:
After
I want macro that read column "B", and paste first country from column "C" in the same cells of column "A", after he find duplicate cell in "B", he copy next country from column "C", and does the same as I wrote with first country and etc.

I have a code:
Sub x()

Dim r1 As Long, r2 As Long

r1 = 2: r2 = 2

Do While Cells(r1, 2) <> vbNullString
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(Cells(r1, 2), Range(Cells(1, 2), Cells(r1 - 1, 2)), 0)) Then
        r2 = r2 + 1
    End If
    Cells(r1, 1).Value = Cells(r2, 3).Value
    r1 = r1 + 1
Loop

End Sub

Open in new window


But it does not work as it should:
After macro
I want when macro find first duplicate in column "B" (in my case B7 "A Bad Moms Christmas") he starting find duplicate from this cell and not paying attention to past cells, and paste same country from "C" (United Arab Emirates), before he find another duplicate and etc.
Can someone help? Thanks.

Hi Alex,

Can you post a sample file rather than us having to re-create it from scratch.

Also, does it have to be VBA?  A formula might be easier, and has the advantage of being self-documenting, and not requiring an XLSM file.

Hi Alex,

Try this:

Sub x()

Dim r1 As Long, r2 As Long, r3 As Long

r1 = 2: r2 = 2: r3 = 1

Do While Cells(r1, 2) <> vbNullString
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(Cells(r1, 2), Range(Cells(r3, 2), Cells(r1 - 1, 2)), 0)) Then
        r2 = r2 + 1
        r3 = r1
    End If
    Cells(r1, 1).Value = Cells(r2, 3).Value
    r1 = r1 + 1
    
Loop

End Sub

Open in new window
