    This means that the job number is still not valid even after it has tried to be corrected.

    MsgBox ("Job not present, Please start new job first")
    to show.

    Any ideas???

    Cheers
    Grant Astley

    You could try removing WorksheetFunction and declaring as a Variant.

    I'd also suggest using Match in the second half rather than looking up the same value repeatedly:
