Combine three InputBoxes into one?


L

L. Howard

Using three inputboxes this code works okay. Takes a column from sheet 1 and makes shorter columns on sheet 2

I would like to do two things.

1. Combine all three entries to a single inputbox, say comma delimited.
2. When referring to the source and destination columns use a letter. (Code below uses a letter for Source and a "number - 1" for Destination column.)

Then split the inputboxes entries to the variables.

Where an inputbox entry would look like 10,D,F would be:

10 rows at a time from column D on source sheet column, post to destination sheet starting at column F and to the right. If last column is not a full 10 rows that is ok.

Thanks.
Howard

try:

Dim arrOut As Variant
Dim arrInfo As Variant

Info = Application.InputBox("Enter the number of rows," _
& "the source column and the target column comma separated",
"Infos", _
Type:=2)

arrInfo = Split(Info, ",")

With Sheets("Sheet2")
LRow = .Cells(Rows.Count, arrInfo(1)).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To LRow Step arrInfo(0)
arrOut = .Range(.Cells(i, UCase(arrInfo(1))), _
.Cells(i + arrInfo(0) - 1, UCase(arrInfo(1))))
Sheets("Sheet3").Cells(1, Asc(UCase(arrInfo(2))) + j - 64) _
.Resize(rowsize:=arrInfo(0)) = arrOut
j = j + 1
Next
End With
End Sub

Enter the informations comma separated but without space

I changed the code that it also works in columns with two or three
letters. The first code only works until column Z:

Sub TransformCol()
Dim Info As String
Dim LRow As Long, i As Long, j As Long
Dim arrOut As Variant
Dim arrInfo As Variant
Dim StartCol As Long

Info = Application.InputBox("Enter the number of rows," _
& "the source column and the target column comma separated", _
"Infos", Type:=2)

If Info = "" Or Info = "False" Then Exit Sub

arrInfo = Split(Info, ",")
StartCol = Columns(arrInfo(2)).Column

With Sheets("Sheet2")
LRow = .Cells(Rows.Count, arrInfo(1)).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To LRow Step arrInfo(0)
arrOut = .Range(.Cells(i, UCase(arrInfo(1))), _
.Cells(i + arrInfo(0) - 1, UCase(arrInfo(1))))
Sheets("Sheet3").Cells(1, StartCol + j) _
.Resize(rowsize:=arrInfo(0)) = arrOut
j = j + 1
Next
End With
End Sub

End If

If TargetCol + Int(LRow / arrInfo(0)) + 1 > 16384 Then

GoTo Start
End If

Great stuff indeed.

I assume this converts the column letter/s to a column number and also convers lower case entries to upper case so they will work with the code?

SourceCol = Columns(UCase(arrInfo(1))).Column
TargetCol = Columns(UCase(arrInfo(2))).Column

Thank again.

Howard
