Range()=OtherRange() vs .Copy Destination:=

Range()=OtherRange() vs .Copy Destination:=

Range()=OtherRange() vs .Copy Destination:=

Good morning and Merry Christmas Eve.

Just asking myself the question as to which might be more efficient than the other, a or b. And do I need the .Value?


a) Sheets("Data").Range("C" & d).Value = Sheets("Somerset").Range("A" & r)

b) Sheets("Somerset").Range("A" & r).Copy Destination:=Sheets("Data").Range("C" & d) 

Many thanks,

RE: Range()=OtherRange() vs .Copy Destination:=

(A) should be faster, you can execute both in loop and check the speed.
Note that:
1) Value is the default property of Range object, it will be used if you skip the full path,
2) Value has some quirks for currency formats, instead, Value2 is faster and always refer to cell's real value,
3) in (b) you copy formulas and formats, it behaves differently to (a).

Thank you combo. CHRISTMAS DAY!?!?!? Ha ha! smile2 I had a suspicion that 'Value' was "better". It's only a small bit of code so I've amended all to 'Value2'.

Many thanks,
