    HELP PLEASE : How to make macros to search a word in the entire sheet & c/p the value

    Hi everyone!

    I'm new with macro and VBA in excel and i hope you could help me on how to create a macro. I would like to find a certain text (e.g. Total Profit) in Column G(let say in the entire sheet) and copy the value next to it which is in the next two column and paste it L1 and M1.
    Please see attached file

    For example:
    I would like to search for the word "Total NT" in the entire sheet and copy the numbers in the next two column. In that example, "Total NT" is located in G31 and I would like to copy the value of 11 and 15 and paste it in column L1 and M1.
    As well as to search the word "Total Assets" (located in B31) and copy the value of of 999 and 2222 and wanted to paste the value at L3 and M3. and so on and so forth...

    By the way, my worksheet has datas from A1:J200


    Looking forward to hear anyone from you. Thanks!

    in your sheets that searching value have duplicates as well.

    after looking around your sheet, what i suggest is if we search value only column B and G , what u say

    one more thing, u want the value only for that names whatever mention in column K right

    1. Use [code] code tags [\code]. It keeps posts clean, easy-to-read, and maintains VBA formatting.
    2. If you are happy with a solution to your problem, mark the thread as [SOLVED] using the tools at the top.

    Yeah the output value will be in the same sheet and can be pasted in Col L and M.
    I need to search and copy/paste the values what is written in column K.

    You got my point?

    Re: HELP PLEASE : How to make macros to search a word in the entire sheet & c/p the valu

    F25 is the same as G25, though, I told my code to look at columns B and G ONLY, for some unknown reason to me, it picks up the value of column G, so I had to change the name of F25 so as not to make it the same as G25. Apart from this glitch, the code works.

    Actually, i made few errors for column F25. Normally, Col F and G must not be the same. For instance in Column F25, it should be state as OR-IN while Column G25 is Total OR-IN.

    Can you tell me how did you do? Can you paste the code in here?
    Are u using vba code, right?

    The code is attached to the sheet.
    Go to developer-Visual basics, then you should see VBA project-That is where the code is stored9(In the module). If you are happy with the outcome, I will make you a button. The button is attached to the code. When you press the button the code is run.

    The code should go in to standard module, not in a worksheet.
    Once you are in the module, select the entire code, copy and then go in to the sheet you want to copy in to, insert new module, right click then paste.
    After the code is in standard module, you need to press F5 to run it, but you also need to change the name of the sheet from sheet1 to the actual sheet name, otherwise, you will get an error "Out of range"

    Re: HELP PLEASE : How to make macros to search a word in the entire sheet & c/p the valu

    Hi AB33,

    Thank you! It is really very helpful. I tried to changed the location of the word to be searched. Instead in column K, i transfer it at Column J. Once I press F5, I encountered error.
    I tried to change "K1" to "J1" but when i press F5, instead the values should appear in Col L and Col M, it appears the data in Col K and Col L. Did I miss a spot in here?

    Also, I wanted to also, if there were new datas will be encoded for Column C, Col D and Col H and Col I, the data in Col L and Col M will be changing, right? In that case, how can I refresh it? Is there any button or should I copy and paste the code again and press F5 to run again?
