  1. Hello, is there anyway to insert text in several sheets at the same time, not just the “output”-sheet?

    • Hi Michelle,
      You can try the following piece of code:

      Sub PasteAcrossSheets()

      Dim arr(3)

      i = 0
      For Each Worksheet In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
      Worksheet.Activate
      arr(i) = ActiveSheet.Name
      i = i + 1
      Next

      yy = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
      Set xx = Application.InputBox(“Insert a range:”, “Microsoft Excel”, yy, , , , , 8)
      If xx Is Nothing Then Exit Sub

      mm = Application.ScreenUpdating
      Application.ScreenUpdating = False
      xx.Copy

      Sheets(arr).Select

      Range(“G5”).Select
      ActiveSheet.Paste

      Application.CutCopyMode = False
      Application.ScreenUpdating = mm

      End Sub
