Me puedes ayudar?. Necesito hacer la selección que se hace con este cuadro, pero al seleccionarlo quiero copiarlo y pegarlo en otra hoja.

This is very helpful! Is there a way to format the columns on the display of range values in VBA? I see in your example as well that not all of the columns are showing the same data. The name column is long and pushes your date column over to the right.
