    Question How to find a text string and then copy the next 5 rows to a new sheet

    Hi everyone, I have been searching and googling for days now and can't seem to find the right fit for what I need to do. I have tried piecing together different formulas that I could find, but I just can't seem to get it to work the way I want.

    What I am trying to do is make a macro that will search for the word "Voice" and then copy the next 5 rows to a new sheet. I have found plenty of macros that will do this, but I can't seem to figure out how to loop it to the end of the sheet and find each instance of the word "Voice".

    For example:

    Sheet1 would look something like this:

    | Column A |
    _____________
    1 Voice
    2 123
    3 456
    4 789
    5 011
    6 121
    7 314
    8 151
    9 617
    10 181
    11 Voice
    12 920
    13 212
    14 223
    15 242
    16 526
    17 272
    18 829


    So then in Sheet2 it would look like this:

    | Column A |
    _____________
    1 123
    2 456
    3 789
    4 011
    5 121
    6 920
    7 212
    8 223
    9 242
    10 526


    ... and this would repeat on until the last line in Sheet1.

    I appreciate any insight and help,
    Thank you!

    Jon

    Hi, Deep,

    sorry but why donīt you paste the code here and attach a workbook? Itīs a Select code with switching sheets (unnecessary) and iterating thorugh all rows (while the counter could be augmented when the range is copied). Sadly your code only copies 4 row with

    4 instead of 5 Rows was written by error.

    You can guide me with a better solution. I am always looking forward to learn from you..
