Public Sub Test2()
Dim monthOff As Long
Dim numMonths As Long
With ActiveSheet

monthOff = DateDiff("M", DateSerial(2000, 1, 1), Range("A2"))
numMonths = DateDiff("M", Range("A2"), Range("B2")) + 1
.Range("D2").Offset(, monthOff).Resize(, numMonths).Value = .Range("C2").Value
End With
End Sub

I try to change the cell references to active cell reference insted of " A2" or "B2" or "C2" or "D2". so that i can use this code for any rows... I try to change as following but not working.. any guy can help on this VBA code .. the intial cell postion before i run the code will be the cell A1 ... thanks


Public Sub srini2()
Dim monthOff As Long
Dim numMonths As Long
With ActiveSheet

monthOff = DateDiff("M", DateSerial(2000, 1, 1), ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select)
numMonths = DateDiff("M", ActiveCell.Offset(0, 0).Select, ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select) + 1

Is this what you want



Public Sub srini2()
Dim monthOff As Long
Dim numMonths As Long
With ActiveCell

monthOff = DateDiff("M", DateSerial(2000, 1, 1), .Offset(1, 0))
numMonths = DateDiff("M", ActiveCell, .Offset(0, 1)) + 1
.Offset(0, 2 + monthOff).Resize(, numMonths).Value = .Offset(0, -1).Value
End With
End Sub

I thought this code looked familiar, and look what we turn up at Excel Forum http://www.excelforum.com/excel-programming/789721-auto-populating-cells-from-a-date-range.html.

Now, I may not be bright, but as I read it, you said that answer was perfect. And yet you go and cross-post it here. Oh dear!

Sorry Bob, about that. my laptop formated over weekend, i did n't saved the link before.

i try to run your code, I'm getting the runtime error 13 "type mismatch".. at numMonths = DateDiff("M", ActiveCell, .Offset(0, 1)) + 1

Be aware, that if you cross-post, some people, myself included, will not even look at your problem as we are at risk of wasting our own or some other person's time if both work on it at the same time.
