look in the excel/vba help for searches.... set some variables... and it's just that easy...

Something like this....
ReportRow = 1
Label = "FindMe" ' get first search value
With Worksheets(1).Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(500, 1))
Set SearchLabel = .Find(Label, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart) ' search for Label
If Not SearchLabel Is Nothing Then
ValA = cells(SearchLabel.Row,SearchLabel.Column +1).value
ValB = cells(SearchLabel.Row,SearchLabel.Column +2).value
ValC = cells(SearchLabel.Row,SearchLabel.Column +3).value
Cells(ReportRow, 1).Value = ValA
Cells(ReportRow, 2).Value = ValB
Cells(ReportRow, 3).Value = ValC
End If
End With

and loop it...
