      Hi Vivek,

      Here is the example program for your requirement.

      Sub sbCreateTOCSheetHyperLinks()
          iCntr = 5 ' worksheets names starts from 5th row
          'loop until the cell is blank
          Do While Sheets("Index").Range("A" & iCntr) <> ""
              'If you want to add new worksheets from last worksheet
              Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Count)
              ActiveSheet.Name = Sheets("Index").Range("A" & iCntr)
              'delete if any existing hyperlink

  11. Jaimin says:

    How to write vba macro to copy data from one sheet to another without using “copy” command ?

    • PNRao says:

      Hi Jaimin,

      You can use for loop to get the data from one sheet to another sheet. For instance, if you want to get the data of cells A1:A20 from Sheet2 to cells B1:B20 of sheet1.

      For iCntr=1 to 20

      Its depending up on your requirement. If you want to copy only few cells. you can do it without using for loop.

      However Copy command [Sheets2.Range("A1:A10").Copy Destination:=Sheets1.Range("B1)] works more faster, you can copy the data including formats.

      Hope this helps!
      Thanks – PNRao!

  16. Patrizio says:

    first of all congrats for the amazing helpful website.
    I am wondering if you could help me with this VBA issue:
    1) Hypothesize we have in “sheet1″ cell a1, a3, a5, a7 and so on with a gap of 2.
    2) I would like a Macro that links (instead of copy if possible) cell b1, b2, b3, b4 and so on of “sheet2″ to cell a1, a3, a5 … of “sheet1″ (basically removing the Gap)

    Hope I was clear.

    Thanks a lot for your help,


    • PNRao says:

      Hi Patrizio,

      Thanks for your comments. Here are VBA macros for your requirement.

      Sub sbFill_OddRows()
      Dim iCntr, jCntr, lastRow As Long
      'iCntr to iterate Sheet2
      'jCntr to iterate Sheet1
      'lastRow for storeing last row with data in Sheet2
      lastRow = 25
      'Assuming you have data up to 25th row in Sheet2
      'If the last row is not fixed, then check
      'our most useful vba examples to find Last row
      'in different scenarios
      jCntr = 1
      For iCntr = 1 To lastRow
          Sheet1.Cells(jCntr, 1) = Sheet2.Cells(iCntr, 1)
          jCntr = jCntr + 2 'increasing jCntr to skip one row
      End Sub
      '*To fill even rows: Same as above with one change
      Sub sbFill_EvenRows()
      Dim iCntr, jCntr, lastRow As Long
      lastRow = 25
      jCntr = 2 ' 1 to fill Odd rows, 2 to fill Even rows
      For iCntr = 1 To lastRow
          Sheet1.Cells(jCntr, 1) = Sheet2.Cells(iCntr, 1)
          jCntr = jCntr + 2
      End Sub

      Hope this helps, let me know if you need more clarification.

    • PNRao says:

      Hi Sivakumar,
      Thanks for writing us! Could you please specify your problem in more detailed.

  18. Ashish says:

    hi this is my query, could you please help
    i have these percentages
    35%,40%,25% and then i have a value say 50,000
    i have made a tab on which i click and it should calculate the percentages itself

    will the same macro run for multiple entries?

    • PNRao says:

      Hi Ashish,

      I am assuming you have your Value at A1 and Percentages at B1,B2,B3 and you want to print the percentage of that values in C1,C2,C3.

      for this you can use simple formula in C1=A1*B1/100 [Example, if you have 200 in A1 and 10 in B1, this will pront 20 in C1]

      Sorry, your question is not clear, please provide more information. So that I can help you.

    Can you please show me the code to insert alphabets from A to Z in Horizontally and vertically.


    • PNRao says:

      Here you go…

      Sub sbPrintAlphabetsVertically()

      For iCntr = 1 To 26
      Cells(iCntr, 1) = Chr(64 + iCntr)

      End Sub

      Sub sbPrintAlphabetsHorizonatally()

      For iCntr = 1 To 26
      Cells(1, iCntr) = Chr(64 + iCntr)

      End Sub


  21. Aslam says:


    I am new to VBA can u please show me the code to search amount with negative sign in particular column and move it next/ before that column.

    Thanks in advance,


    • PNRao says:

      Hi Aslam,
      You can just check if the Column A value is <0 then print into Column B. Here is the Example:

      Sub sbPrintNegativeColumnAValuesInToColumnB()
      Dim iCntr, jCntr, lastRow As Long
      lastRow = 50 ‘ Last Row of Column A with data:You can change this
      For iCntr = 1 To lastRow
      If Cells(iCntr, 1) < 0 Then Cells(iCntr, 2) = Cells(iCntr, 1)
      End Sub

  22. arc says:

    Similar to PNRao response. I want to selectively pick data out of a column (the picks will be stepped apart by 3) , select the picks and paste to another column in contiguous fashion (meaning continuous-no step). This works in manually recording a macro and running it but I cannot make it work with programmed VBA language. Excel 2003.

    • PNRao says:

      Hi Arc,
      You can use STEP statement. Here is the example code:

      Assuming you have data in Column A: A1,A4,A7,…..
      And you want to print in Column B: B1,B2,B3…

      Sub sbPrintColumnAByStep3InColumnB()
      Dim iCntr, jCntr, lastRow As Long
      lastRow = 50 ' Last Row of Column A with data:You can change this
      jCntr = 1 ' Counter for Column B
      For iCntr = 1 To lastRow Step 3
      Cells(jCntr, 2) = Cells(iCntr, 1)
      jCntr = jCntr + 1
      End Sub
