    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    So...You are wanting to jump to the cell directly after the cell with value "SomeValue" ?
    No need for loop...

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I just want to simulate a "Next Cell" process for the CELL variable.
    The "some value" is just some random action to happen.
    I am struggling on how to make the Cell variable move/jump to the next value inside itself, since it is a Range from I2:I10

    Not sure what you mean...Perhaps you should upload a sample file and explain in detail what it is you are trying to achieve...

    Explain in detail what it is you are trying to do...and explain what does this mean...
    access the next value inside the Cell variable.

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    I have a variable called CELL that has values based on a range from A1 to A10.
    These values are not Integers, rather, they are strings.
    What I am trying to do is to loop through them, which i can do, and when
    the loop reaches the fifth element, it "jumps" or "skip" to the
    seventh element, ignoring the sixth one. (line 5)

    I see that the ForEach loop has a "Next Cell" (line 17) that "moves" to the
    next CELL.

    What command is similar or can emulate that same "next cell" behavior
    so i can "jump" or "skip" to the next Cell?


    Regards
    Leo

    Thank you and sorry for the previous messy posts.
    I have tried that one. But the issue still kind of the same:
    How to access the 7th element of the Cell Variable?

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    Why would you need to do that? If you don't want to process that cell, don't include it in the range to start with.

    What you mean 7th element...Do you want the code to exit the loop and go to A7???

    Thanks... I also thought about that. But lets assume I am not able to use that option.
    How would I "skip" to the seventh element in the variable Cell ?

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    You don't. You add a test to see if you're processing the 6th item and if so, don't actually do anything. It's generally bad practice to mess with loop variables even if you can (which you can't with a For Each).

    OK... I didnt know i couldnt access the Cell variable "count" to know which element is being used.
    Looks like i will have to re-do everything from the very beginning.

    Thanks once again for your help. I think i was trying the "not possible", which is to use the Cell variable of the
    ForEach loop. It was basically that. I will have to start all over again.

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    Why don't you explain what you are wanting to do and we could offer a solution...
    Cell variable of the ForEach loop
    What does this mean...what do you want to do...
    I keep on asking questions but you never respond to them...is it that difficult...You could have had a solution in post 4 already...

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    You can add your own counter but you might as well just skip the For Each at that point and use a simple for loop:

    but I agree with Sintek: you haven't really explained what you want to do with the 7th cell, or why this would ever be necessary.

    I am very sorry if i havent been clear with my posts. My apologies.
    I will try my best now. :-)

    I am assuming that the variable Cell (For Each Cell In Worksheets("mine").Range("A1:A20"))
    is a variable type Array or similar, and, inside it, values, listed from A1 to A20,
    are stored -they are just a list of names.
    So, since my premisse is that Cell is an array, or similar, when its index reaches
    number 5, considering it started from 1, i want to "move" it to index 7, skiping the 6th element
    and let the ForEach loop finish its job -whatever it is-.

    Again, thank you both for your help.

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    so all you want to do is loop the cells in Range("A1:A20")
    If it gets to the 6th cell, it must skip it and then move on to 7

    Actually, no.
    Since i HAVE to use the ForEach loop and the Cell variable. Cant use a For loop.
    Thats why i was insisting with the Cell variable as an array -which was my mistake since the start-

    So what happened to
    Yup... Thats the idea...
    That is what post 14 does...
    Don't you get it...Explain in layman's terms what you want to do...

    Such as ... I want to run a code snippet that loops through a specific range...During that loop, I want to find criteria "X" when it finds that criteria, it must do the following blah blah blah and then carry on with the loop......................................................

    Otherwise, there is just NO HOPE FOR A SOLUTION...I mean come on...40 post and still no clue what you want to do!!!

    Re: VBA issue with Foreach Next

    Ok.
    Let me use the Layman approach.

    I would like to loop through a list of names, located between A1 and A10, using the FOREACH loop, and only that loop.
    When i reach the FIFTH cell or the value of A5 from the CELL variable, i would like to jump to A7 inside that same CELL variable.
