Hello,
I have been using Excel for a number of years but fairly new to formula etc.
I need a VBA code that can copy data from costing(raw data) to quote based on a certain condition matches.

Costing sheet
column---B(Description)-C(Quantity)-D(UOM)-E(Rate)-F(Total)

When a quantity is entered into column C i need the data from that row to transfer to :-

Quote sheet
column---B(Description)-E(Quantity)-F(UOM)-G(Rate)-H(Total)
But only the row that is relevent

Hi rizvisa1
Apologies.
What i meant by relevant is i only want the row that has a quantity entered into it to transfer onto the next tab
Existing info should stay where it is

you have multiple sections, where will info should be copied
what if number of items selected is more than rows available currently in section
what is a value is entered in costing sheet and then removed
what if value is entered is negative or space or zero
why copy total, when the sheet already has formula to calculate total

Not sure what your first question means?
I was actually looking at the problem of having more rows than available. Not sure if it is possible to automatically add rows into the section if required.
Is there a way of it removing the line if the value is removed.
There will not be any negative values or zeros. If there is no positive figure entered the item will not be selected.
Think you are probably right on this point. i would say Description, UOM and rate are the only items that need to be carried across.

I understand now. I reckon the labour would be easier to be manually entered onto the quote sheet so maybe just leave that. All the rest would go under the material section.

In your sample book, you had a row i(row 31) n material section as not merged. Rest of section was merged. I would think that was an oversight. So first correct that issue. Macro will not work without it.

Before using this macro, you need to copy a function from this thread
https://ccm.net/forum/affich-606042-excel-vba2010-select-cells-between-2-keywords
function is "getItemLocation"

it starts with line
Public Function getItemLocation(sLookFor As String,

Copy the macro below, and also the function as mentioned before and then try this macro

Option Explicit

Public Sub populateQuote()
Dim quoteSheet                As String
Dim costSheet                 As String
Dim materialHeaderRow         As Long
Dim labourHeaderRow           As Long
Dim materialHeader            As String
Dim laborHeader               As String
Dim mergeStartCol             As String
Dim mergeEndCol               As String
Dim searchRange               As Range
Dim labourMaterialOffsetRow   As Integer
Dim tempSheet                 As String
Dim activeSheetName           As String
Dim costLastRow               As Long
Dim costLastColumn            As Integer
Dim diff                      As Long
Dim dayWorkHeader             As String
Dim dayWorkHeaderRow          As Long

   costSheet = "Costing"
