Inserting values into a cell is done quite often in macros. In order to insert information into a cell, you use the Value property. For instance, you could use the following to insert a number (23) into cell A1:
Cells(1, 1).Value = 23
For entering information in a cell, the Value property is applicable to any object that resolves to a range. Thus, you could use the following to place a text value ("Address") into the cell at C4:
Range("C4").Value = "Address"
