3 Ways to Copy Dynamic Range to Another Workbook Using Excel VBA

As we can see Book1 has already got data in it. So, we want our data to copy in its last row and update it every time we run our VBA code.


Method 1: Copy Dynamic Range to Another Workbook with WorkSheet Objects

In this method, we will create a VBA code that will help us to copy and update data into another workbook every time we run that code. So, let’s get started.

Steps:

  • First, right-click on the sheet and go to View Code.

  • After that, copy and paste the VBA code below.

VBA code:

Sub CopyDynamicRange()

Dim wscurrent As Worksheet
Dim wsnow As Worksheet
Dim Lastcopyrow As Long
Dim Lastdestinationrow As Long

Set wscurrent = Workbooks("Copy Dynamic Range to another workbook").Worksheets("Copy Dynamic Range")
Set wsnow = Workbooks("Book1").Worksheets("Sheet1")

Lastcopyrow = wscurrent.Cells(wscurrent.Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row
Lastdestinationrow = wsnow.Cells(wsnow.Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row + 1

wscurrent.Range("B5:E" & Lastcopyrow).Copy wsnow.Range("B" & Lastdestinationrow)

End Sub

  • After that, press the F5 or play button to run the code.

Putting a space after typing wscurrent.Range(“B5:E” & Lastcopyrow).Copy will ask us to give the destination to copy. The destination to copy is defined earlier that’s why we typed wsnow.Range(“B” & Lastdestinationrow). Every time we run the code, data will be copied in Book1’s last row.
