View Full Version : Solved: Referencing Columns in loop

08-18-2005, 06:58 AM
Help....I'm fairly good at vba but I have come across a request from a co-worker for some help and I can't figure it out.

What I need to do is loop across the columns in a given range and read information into an array.

IE I need to read the value in A1, then B1, then C1... then A2, B2, C2....

I can't figure out how to get the loop to increment by "A,B,C" ect across columns. Incrementing the row portion of the address is easy but I hope someone can help figure out how to make vba "count" across columns since they are not numerical.

Thank you,

For i = 1 To 2 'Rows
For j = 1 To 3 'Columns
MsgBox Cells(i,j).Value
Next j
Next i

I'd be inclined to do it a bit like thisDim myRange As Range
Dim c As Long, r As Long
Dim myVals()

Set myRange = Range("F6:H11")
ReDim myVals(1 To myRange.Rows.Count, 1 To myRange.Columns.Count)

For c = 1 To myRange.Columns.Count
For r = 1 To myRange.Rows.Count
myVals(r, c) = myRange(r, c).Value
NextIt gives you the flexibility to work with any range (or you can set the range to the Selection object).

Well I'd be inclined to do it like this

Dim myvals

myvals = Range("F6:H11")
