Auto copy and paste cell in current sheet or from one sheet to another with formula


You can use formula to copy and paste cell automatically. Please do as follows.

1. For copying and pasting cell in current sheet such as copy cell A1 to D5, you can just select the destination cell D5, then enter =A1 and press the Enter key to get the A1 value.

2. For copying and pasting cell from one sheet to another such as copy cell A1 of Sheet1 to D5 of Sheet2, please select the cell D5 in Sheet2, then enter =Sheet1!A1 and press the Enter key to get the value.

Tips: The destination cell is linked to the copied cell, and it will be changed as the original cell changes.


Auto copy and paste cell in current sheet with VBA

The following VBA code helps you copy a cell or a range of cells and paste to specified cells in current worksheet.

1. Press Alt + F11 keys simultaneously to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, click Insert > Module. Then copy and paste the below VBA code into the Module window.

VBA code: Auto copy and paste cell in current sheet

Sub RangeTest()
    On Error Resume Next
    Dim xRg As Range
    Set xRg = Application.Selection
    Range("A1 ").Copy Range("D5")
    xRg.Select
End Sub

Note: In the code, A1 is the cell you will copy, and D5 is the destination cell of placing the value of cell A1. For auto copy and paste cell range, please replace the cell with range, such as replace A1 with A1:A10, and replace D5 with D1:D10.

3. Press the F5 key to run the code, then the certain cell (range) will be copied and pasted to a specified cell (range) automatically as well as the cell formatting.
