    Post Macro (UDF) to Return Names of Sheets in Which A Particular Record is not found

    Hi everyone!

    I'd like to create a macro(UDF) to return the names of the sheets within a workbook in which a particular record is not found. I'd like it to search all the sheets except for the first 3 sheets (starting from the 4th sheet) as the first 3 are templates for the remaining sheets in the workbook. Basically when I enter a part number on the third sheet of the workbook in a particular cell, I'd like it to scan the remaining sheets (minus first three) to return the names of the sheets that do not contain the record. I'd like it to show up in consecutive cells or a single cell separated by ";" on the third sheet of the workbook (whichever is easier to code). A sample worksheet has been attached. The records I'm referring to begin from the 3rd page within the worksheet, beginning from the "Left/Right Wing Structure" table. Also every aircraft will have it's own sheet and the sheet name will be the aircraft tail number which is why I'd like to return the names of the sheets that don't contain the respective parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Hackboss,

    Take the attached file for a test flight. I provided two solutions (User Interface on Sheet3). The search mechanism is the same in both using the Excel VBA 'Find' command. The difference is the first one ignores the first 3 sheets and the second one allows the user to select 3 sheet names to be ignored.


    If you move the macro to your file, some of the following may have to be changed at the top of module 'ModSearchForItem'.

    If you use the option that ignores the first 3 sheets:

    If you use the option that ignores 3 specific sheet names:
