Hi Dorian,
I you like to know how to move from one range down in the active sheet or move column to the right.

Thank you! :D :D :D

Thank you Dorian!
I don't use VBA in the workbook but the link is a good reference that I will studie later on.
Let say I loop a listbox and for every result I get I want to set a cell and go move row down 1 row.
I am able to do it for one result. The problem is to move to down 1 range.
Than you again! :D :D :D

I see. So it's really just posting to cells? To move down, just add 1 to the row. You can do this in a loop

This would post to cells A5,B5,C5,D5,E5 on the first cycle, then A6,B6,C6,D6,E7 on the seconds, and so on. Of course just to set one cell you'd need 1 line and not 5, but this is a good example of posting to rows and columns.

So you'd just incorporate this into whatever loop you have.

Code: Select all

Let>XLRow=5
XLSetCell>xlbook,Sheet1,%XLRow%,1,this,res1
XLSetCell>xlbook,Sheet1,%XLRow%,2,that,res2
XLSetCell>xlbook,Sheet1,%XLRow%,3,them,res3
XLSetCell>xlbook,Sheet1,%XLRow%,4,him,res4
XLSetCell>xlbook,Sheet1,%XLRow%,5,her,res5
Let>XLRow=XLRow+1
