### For Next Looping In Excel Vba

1. 1. For-Next Looping in Excel VBA Microsoft Office Training Excel Training www.bluepecan.co.uk
2. 2. • For next looping works by using a counter variable. The counter states the number of times a specific piece of code should be repeated. www.bluepecan.co.uk
3. 3. • The following macro produces a random number between 1 and 100. The code includes a counter which will run the code 100 times offsetting each value by one row – in other words creating the values down a column. www.bluepecan.co.uk
4. 4. Sub CountExample() Dim Counter As Integer For Counter = 1 To 100 ActiveCell.Value = Int (Rnd*100) ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select Next Counter End Sub www.bluepecan.co.uk
5. 5. • A step value can be included in a For-Next Loop. The step value determines how the counter is incremented. Change the active cell value to Counter to see the increment more clearly www.bluepecan.co.uk
6. 6. Sub CountExample() Dim Counter As Integer For Counter = 1 To 100 Step 5 ActiveCell.Value = Counter ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select Next Counter End Sub www.bluepecan.co.uk
7. 7. • The macro might be more useful if the user can give their own counter and step values. We will introduce a couple of input boxes for this purpose: www.bluepecan.co.uk
8. 8. Sub CountExample2() Dim Counter As Integer Dim ToNum As Integer Dim StepNum As Integer ToNum = InputBox("What maximum value do you want?") StepNum = InputBox("What increment do you want?") For Counter = 1 To ToNum Step StepNum ActiveCell.Value = Counter ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select Next Counter End Sub www.bluepecan.co.uk
