    Breaking loop if condition met

    Hi,
    I'm trying to create a condition such that if the range is not equal to zero then a message box appears (which works ok). However, i also want another condition that if the range is equal to zero, then it deletes a specified range.
    At the moment, my problem is that if one part of the range is not equal to zero, then a message box appears - but if the rest of the range is zero, it continues to delete the specified range. I need it to not delete the specified range if any of the range is non zero i.e. the else condition is never realised if any of the range is non zero. Here is my code as it stands:


    Sub Check_checks()
    For Each r In Range("U7,U11,u84,u85,u161,u162, e231, e232")
    If r.Value <> 0 Then
    MsgBox "Check again"

    Else
    Range("U7:U9").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=54
    Range("U84:U85").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=69
    Range("U161:U162").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=69
    Range("C228:E232").Select
    Range("E232").Activate
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeRight).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideVertical).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-120
    End If
    Next

    End Sub

    Re: Breaking loop if condition met

    As you loop through, instead of outputting the Msgbox or clearing the range, increment a counter for the condition. That is, r.Value<>0.

    When you complete the loop, check the counter. Depending on the count value, THEN output the Msgbox or clear the range.

    Re: Breaking loop if condition met

    Hi,
    Thanks for your ideas, I really like them. I'm not very good at implementing them though. I have set up a counter, but whenever there is a nonzero value in the range, the message popup comes up 8 times; exactly the number of values in the range that i'm checking. Do you know why this is?

    Sub Check_checks()
    Dim i, counter As Integer
    counter = 0
    For Each r In Range("U7,U11,u84,u85,u161,u162, e231, e232")
    If r.Value <> 0 Then
    counter = counter + 1

    End If

    If counter <> 0 Then
    MsgBox "Check again"
    Else

    Range("U7:U9").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=54
    Range("U84:U85").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=69
    Range("U161:U162").Select
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=69
    Range("C228:E232").Select
    Range("E232").Activate
    Selection.ClearContents
    With Selection.Interior
    .Pattern = xlNone
    .TintAndShade = 0
    .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlEdgeRight).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideVertical).LineStyle = xlNone
    Selection.Borders(xlInsideHorizontal).LineStyle = xlNone
    ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-120
    End If
    Next

    End Sub


    thanks!
