    Smile Search box in Excel to search key words in sentences in multiple worksheets

    Afternoon,

    I've used this website a lot as it has helped resolve so many questions, so thank you everyone. There is one question that I havent found an answer to. I know there is someone out there who has the answer.

    I've attached an example excel file Example FI.xlsx, this spreadsheet will be a database which contains all the questions/answers I have encountered from various documents/files/reports/etc. The database will be updated regularly with new questions/answers into the different worksheets depending on category.

    Each worksheet will have:
    Column A - will have the name of document/file/report.
    Column B - would contain the question or answer

    In "Search" sheet, I would like to use a search box, to type a key word that I would like to find across the different worksheets. The search would look into the Column B, through the phrase/paragraphs/sentences (number of words and length in Column B will vary). And then provide in search sheet, the worksheet that contains the word (Column F), the document the word came from (Column G) and the row it is found in (Column H).

    I would like to add extra questions/answers to the different worksheets and even add new ones. So it would be very helpeful to understand what formula/macro changes I need to complete to update Excel document.

    So anyone who is able to help, please let me know what I need to do.

    Thank you again for all your posts and help

    Hi, welcome to the forum,

    I'm afraid your post does not comply with Rule 8 of our Forum RULES. Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. You'll find people are disinclined to respond to cross-posts because they may be wasting their time solving a problem that has been solved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser)to the cross-post. Expect cross-posts without a link to be closed a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us to help you!

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this, and then please edit your first post to include links to any and all cross-posts in any other forums (not just this site).

    EDIT: P.s do the same over at OzGrid too
