excel – Insert the outcome of a formula using vba

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


I want to insert a formula in a range of cells in column P. Afterwards I want the outcome of the formula to be a hard value (so not the formula but the outcome). At the moment I’m placing the formula in the cells, then autofill to last row and then copy column and past special. I want to avoid using select – copy – paste. I was wondering if anyone knows how to do this, I’ve seen it before but can’t find it anymore.

The code I’m using at the moment

Set frCP = Worksheets("Compliance").Range("P" & FirstRowFill & ":P" & LastRowMatchC)

With Worksheets("Compliance")
    .Range("P" & FirstRow).Offset(1).FormulaArray = "=IF(IFERROR(INDEX(Input!$A$2:A$" & LastRowInput & ",MATCH(1,SEARCH(TRANSPOSE(Input!$A$2:A$" & LastRowInput & "),O" & FirstRowOffset1 & "),0),0),W" & FirstRowOffset1 & ")=0,""ZZ"",IFERROR(INDEX(Input!$A$2:A$" & LastRowInput & ",MATCH(1,SEARCH(TRANSPOSE(Input!$A$2:A$" & LastRowInput & "),O" & FirstRowOffset1 & "),0),0),W" & FirstRowOffset1 & "))"
    .Range("P" & FirstRow).Offset(1).AutoFill Destination:=frCP
End With

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
    :=False, Transpose:=False

With Worksheets("Compliance")
    .Range("A" & FirstRow).Rows(ActiveCell.Row).AutoFilter
    .AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Add2 Key:= _
    .Range("P" & FirstRow), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:= _
End With
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Compliance").AutoFilter.Sort
    .Header = xlYes
    .MatchCase = False
    .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
    .SortMethod = xlPinYin
End With
How to&Answers:

You should be able to replace the whole select-copy-paste block with:

columns("P:P").value = columns("P:P").value

I’m reading the question correctly, this should also work:

frCP.value = frCP.value
