Copy rows by column match condition

 IMnotGoodATvba -

I want to copy the rows from one sheet to other sheet based on column name matching.



ENO(Imagine sheet1) ENO(Sheet2)


Here i want to copy all records from ENO(Sheet1) to other ENO(sheet2) column based on sheet1.ENO=sheet2.ENO.

Could you please help me on this.

not clear . what is meant by "sheet1.ENO=sheet2.ENO"

I suppose sheet11 has raju, ravi ramesh in column A2 to A4(row no 1 column headings)
and some data in columns B and C

in sheet 2
you have name "ramesh" in A2
you want to fill B and C in this sheet based on sheet 1

then you have to use vlookup function

post small extract of sheet 1 and sheet 2 as you want it to be.

The code below works thanks to a guy named "The Real Tin Tin" on another site. You need to change the "ABCDEFG" to whatever your column names are and also the column number they are in so for example Column G = 7 and Column E = 5. You also need to change the sheet names from "Master" and "Data" to whatever you named them. I have been trying to figure out how to get the rows to delete after it copies them. I will post that addition once I have it working flawlessly. I would like to see a excel community that shares knowledge so if you have a code that works please post it. I will keep doing the same and who knows we may help each other someday.
