Using The Range Find Method


For the most advanced usage of the Range.Find method, Rich's newest book not only includes detailed instructions but also provides a downloadable app showing the full source code for using the Range.Find method in the most exacting applications.

Power-Up Using Excel VBA Sorts and Searches


The Range Find Method allows the user to search for one or more occurrances of a variable within a range. It is useful when you want to search for items in all the rows and columns of a range. The example below locates multiple occurrances of a particular cell value and copies that cell value plus the next three cells to the right in the same row to a separate sheet.
