Excelchat Expert

However, for the sake of time, I will just recreate it for you and add in the VBA.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:28

rows

User
01/12/2017 - 08:28

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:28

I can't process that many rows in a VBA

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:28

to test.

User
01/12/2017 - 08:28

ah. we could limit the number to 250 rows if that helps

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:28

Can you give me a fixed range and then you can change it later.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:28

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:49

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 08:49

Can you access dropbox?

There you go!

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:05

User
01/12/2017 - 09:07

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:07

Let me know if you have any questions.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:07

I would yse.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:07

yes.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:07

Because there is code specific to that document.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:07

If you wanted to do this on another file, you would have to transfer the code over to the VBA developer.

User

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:10

Shouldn't be. I'm reviewing now.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:11

Okay, that is an easy fix.

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:11

Change the B in column C to C,

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:11

B to D in column D

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:11

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:11

Excelchat Expert
01/12/2017 - 09:13

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8g8dx6pb2ozuqnf/VBA%20Alph.xlsm?dl=0
