Believe there's a method run the script below, but using the Evaluate function. Below works, but I'm hoping it could run quicker.

    For i = 2 To lrBP
        For j = 7 To lrBdg
            If shBP.Range("A" & i) = shBdg.Range("B" & j) Then
                shBP.Range("B" & i).Copy
                shBdg.Range("AA" & j).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
            End If
        Next j
    Next i

Try this.. it should speed up the processing of the loops:

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlManual
    'your code here..
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic

Also, you could read your range into an array, as in:

dim arr() as variant
arr() = Range("your range here").Value

.. and then process your calculations within the array and write the results from the array back out to the worksheet. This would be faster than doing a copy/paste loop directly on the face of the worksheet. Would need a little more context from your example to actually write the code/solution.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Not sure if this will work, but see How to Change Another Cell with a VBA Function.
