    wrong data copied into new cell from macro

    Hey all,

    I have this macro and this is basically what I am trying to do:

    If J contains the word Defendant
    And
    If F contains the word Foreclosure
    Then
    If G contains " V ESTATE OF "
    Then keep everything to the right of "OF"
    Else If G contains " VS "
    Then keep everything to the right of " VS "
    Else If G contains " V " (notice the spaces before and after V)
    Then keep everything to the right of " V "

    If K contains " " (two consecutive spaces)
    Then Keep it
    Or
    If K contains "UNKNOWN SPOUSE OF"
    Then remove the very last character of cell, which will be a comma
    And if the cell begins with an underscore
    Then remove it
    Then Keep it

    Assign the result of G to the corresponding N cell
    Assign the result of K to the corresponding O cell

    This is macro:

    What happens right now is something strange. The correct value is never pasted into N in some cases. Rather a value from another cell in K is pasgted to the wrong cell in N.

    I attached an excel spreadsheet example of the issue.

    Thanks for response.

    Try this:

    The problem was you hadn't put in the UNKNOWN SPOUSE stuff anywhere, and you were only filling in your LValue variable when there were dblspaces. Since most of your variables were only being referenced one time, I took a bunch out and issued commands directly against the one-time calculations.

    Also, based on your final instructions above, you had the wrong information going into N and O, backwards.
