I have recently brought an old cycle off a friend as i'm starting out tri racing and i didn't want to splash out on a new bike if i don't like triathlon, it has campagnolo gearing with mirage ergo shifters, a veloce rear deraillier and a 9 speed cassette. The issue that i'm having is that when i'm shifting gear the largest 4 gears shift very well but then for about the next 3 cogs the chain clicks as if not located properly. I've had a little tinker with the tension of the cable and this just takes the issue from the original cogs to the previously ok ones, all spacing between cogs is equal so i can't see why the shifting isn't constant, has anybody got any advice as to what could be causing this and remedies if anyone has any.
This might help

Many thanks for everyones help, i've been informed on a different forum that i may want to check where the cable is clamped on the derraileur i.e. above or below the bolt, as it should be below the bolt, i changed the cable a few days ago and i had routed it above the bolt, i've rectified this and the issue has gone away

Like Nicko says could be a number of things - I'd add worn/gunged up/poorly routed cables to the list of possibles.

usefull link - thanks nicko
I'm greatful for your help and i did check the routing was correct (to my knowledge) it's just that the other forum specified the bolt / cable combination as this is something that i would of never thought of.
