I have a worksheet for scoring.

I have a list in the first sheet that will be for data entry starting with a2 and going down the sheet, this is for Player names.

I have a summary sheet named "Place" that has a formula for pulling data.

I would like a macro to count the number of text strings in sheet "Setup" from A2 to whatever and then fill down sheet "Place" the correct number of times.


You could use something like

StringCount = 0

For i = 2 to range("A2").end(xldown).row 'assuming no breaks in data

If Typename(cells(i, 1).value) = "String" Then StringCount = StringCount + 1

Next i

This essentially gives you the number of strings in column A
