    Search Limitation

    I have a sheet with 30 reports. I need to find the one called "APPL" at the beginning but only the one that has the cell "iTap" in an area one to three rows below it in some column. I want to select what is one cell below "iTap".

    @John,

    Need to search the entire column for itap and that will exit the loop after the first APPL. I think you need:

    @yudlugar - Thanks for the insight, but I wasn't sure if there would be more than one "APPL".

    "I need to find the one called "APPL" at the beginning". BTW your code is much more efficient.

    Re: Search Limitation

    Can I also find the report with both APPL and iTap and search for "Daily Excess"? between that first APPL with iTap found and the next occurence of APPL?

    Can you attach a file with some sample data to view? To attach a file, push the button with the paperclip (or scroll down to the Manage Attachments button), browse to the required file, and then push the Upload button.

    Re: Search Limitation

    so basically what you did before but times two and then a third search between the rows found by the two searches.

    What do you want to do with the information once found?

    Re: Search Limitation

    this helps to find it in the example but not in the actual document, as it is always structured differently, look at the additional comments please.

    Re: Search Limitation

    Let me explain in another way: I need:

    In an Excel 07 ninja-report (very long) the following is needed to create a limited search
    Search where ABC and 100 are in any cell within 2 rows from each other
    Search where ZZZ and 100 are in any cell within 2 rows from each other
    Search for Gold to find the value in the cell to the right of it but in the range of the previous two searches' rows.
