    Find/Replace Macro Using Replace Table

    Hey folks,

    Iím attempting to create a Find/Replace macro where I can populate the lookups/replacement into a table and then run the macro on a range finding the values from my table and replace them accordingly.

    Here is an example:

    I have a range with the following values:
    Mélanie Fiona
    Céline Dion
    Selena Gomez & The Scene
    I have a range of replacement values stored in a table in the following manner:

    Column A
    é
    &

    Column B
    e
    And


    Iím looking to build a macro that will search for the values in Column A from my table and replace them with the value of Column B on a specified range.

    Iím currently using the following macro as a direct replacement.

    LampCommandr,

    The following macro should work for you. The first prompt is asking you to select the range of cells that contains the text to look for and their associated replacement values. The second prompt is asking you to select the range that needs the replacements:

    Thanks for the response Tiger.

    I adjusted the code to reflect what I'm working with in the following manner:

    The table of values with the replacements exists on one tab and the content to check is in another.

    The issue I'm running into is that when I run the macro, all values change to one. Any idea why?

    I've attached an example. Thanks in advance.
