    when I try to copy and paste a row from one worksheet to another the whole sequence works (including selecting the right destination range, at the end of the list, but activesheet.paste only seems to paste my row to the top row of the destination sheet’ writing over data that is already there
    I have rewritten it a million times with different output, sigh

    lastrowc = Selection.CurrentRegion.Rows.Count + 1
    Range(lastrowc, 1).Select
    what do I do wring?
