    Re: Search multiple sheets for matches

    Before beginning, on the Search sheet we clear all the used rows below the first 8 since the top 8 rows are static headers. My code snippet does that.

    Yours would clear column B.

    No matter what I do I cannot get this code to work on the test example
    I must be doing something wrong

    Post your attempt to get it to work and I'll see if I can spot the problem.

    Re: Search multiple sheets for matches

    Yes, your macro doesn't work, that's why I replaced it with the one suggested in post #2.

    Also, your column A was hidden making the column headers look like they were off. I've unhidden the column A and attached my macro to your button.
