    How can I locate all cells with the same value and place specific text in adjacent cells

    I need a way to select a cell in a column, find all the cells with the same value, and place specific text in adjacent cells next to each of them.
    For example, I select "Rite Aid" and for all cells containing "Rite Aid" I want to fill the cell next to it with "Prescriptions".
    I'm brand new to Excel and I'm using the version that comes in Office 2010.
    Please tell me what to do and how to implement it.

    Try running this macro.

    In your Excel worksheet, press Alt + F11, this will open up the VB editor.
    Press Ctrl + R to open up the Project explorer, displayed on the left by default.
    Look for your workbook name, right click on it and Insert -> Module.
    Now paste below code into the empty module window to the right side.
    Go back to Excel worksheet, select the cell you wanted to find.
    Press Alt + F8, to open up the macros window.
    You should be able to see FindCellsPlaceText in there, run it.

    is there a way to mod it so that I'm prompted for the text (ie: Prescriptions) by way of a text box, rather than changing the actual code each time?

    Right, sorry I did not get an email notification of your last post, so I missed it somehow.
