    Search for specific word in excel and paste it in the next column(not sure how to start)

    Hey Guys,

    I am looking for macro that will search column A for a specific word, in this case it will search for "NFF". If any cell in column A contains NFF, it will paste NFF into column B. For instance if A1 = "NFF, Upgraded" then B1 will show "NFF" I have attached a sample spreadsheet with a couple of examples. Sheet 1 is what I have, sheet 2 is what I need.


    Thanks

    That works great!! One question, is there a way to make the macro only paste what it is searching for?? Like instead of pasting NFF, UPGRADED.... it only pastes NFF

    I think I might misunderstood your request. Try this file. The input box is case sensitive
