Newbie needs help with loop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to write a function for Excel 2013 that will add 20 non-zero numbers in a column and divide by 20 to get a moving average. I will then copy the function down 3,000 cells. I use to program VB6 but I'm lost in VBA. Can someone please tell me how I reference whatever cell the function starts in. If I knew that I believe I can then construct a loop that will test for being >0 and calculate the moving average. As an example, if the function starts in cell B1 and the data is in cell A1, I may have to look at 25 cells down from A1 to find 20 non-zero numbers. Then the function would start all over in cell B2 looking in A2 and so on.  Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Jack,

    If I understand correctly, you want to auto fill the function down the cells. Record macro is an easy way to get start. I write a function in B1 and I want to copy the function to the cells to B2:B13. Below is the code:

    Sub AutoFillCells()
        Range("B1").AutoFill Destination:=Range("B1:B13"), Type:=xlFillDefault
    End Sub

    You can get more detail from article below:
    Range.AutoFill

    Best regards
