My example has just 2 rows but there could be x number of rows. I have 2 identical rows and column E is the service but the service is missing for the second row. I have code that checks if the service is there and if it isn't, a message box will be displayed and the sub exited. This works if the service is missing for the first row but it won't work if the service is missing for second row and I imagine it wouldn't work for any rows after that either. Could someone show me what I need to change in my code please?

I think this is the area that needs to be changed but I am not sure how.
VBA Code:
                                    With Application.Intersect(.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible), .Offset(1, 0))
                                        'Check if there is a service entered in column 5 of the filtered job.
                                        If .Areas(1).Cells(1, 5).Value = "" Then
                                            'Display a messagebox with a message and the sheet that has the missing service.
                                            MsgBox "There is a job in the " & ws.Name & " sheet that matches the date and request number but does not have a " & _
                                            "service type. Please add a service type to this job before continuing."
                                            Call TurnOnFunctionality
                                            .AutoFilter
                                            'Cells(32, 2).ClearContents
                                            'Cells(37, 2).ClearContents
                                            Exit Sub
                                        End If
                                        'If the service column, (5), has a value, store the service in the service variable.
                                        Service = .Areas(1).Cells(1, 5).Value
                                    End With

Here is my whole sub

Thanks Michael but that is not what I want. I added the code as you suggested and run the sub.

  1. The lines are filtered to the correct rows
  2. The first one is highlighted
  3. I am asked is the correct row
  4. I press No
  5. It moves on to the next row where it shows the message box, Service details not provided

I need it to tell you straight away that there is a service missing or not spelt correctly.

Similar to the code the works correctly for the first row.
VBA Code:
                                    With Application.Intersect(.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible), .Offset(1, 0))
                                        'Check if there is a service entered in column 5 of the filtered job.
                                       
                                        If .Areas(1).Cells(1, 5).Value = "" Then
                                            'Display a messagebox with a message and the sheet that has the missing service.
                                            MsgBox "There is a job in the " & ws.Name & " sheet that matches the date and request number but does not have a " & _
                                            "service type. Please add a service type to this job before continuing."

I forgot to say I added your line of code between the activate and entire row colour change lines as I wanted it to appear before the rows changed colour.

I must say, I'm really confused by this !!
This will check each row for the service provided BEFORE each row is colored is that what you need
VBA Code:
For Each RowLine In Rng.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
    ws.Activate
    If RowLine.Offset(, 4).Value = "" Then
    MsgBox "Service Details Not provided, Please correct !!"
    'exit sub
    End If
    RowLine.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 6
    answer = MsgBox("Is this the job you want to apply the late cancel price too?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton2, "Late Cancel Price")
    RowLine.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 0
    If answer = vbYes Then
        'I had to include a -3 in here to account for the 3 rows above the data that don't have data in them
        RowNumber = RowLine.Row - 3
        GoTo FoundRightJob
    End If
    'If answer = vbNo
Next RowLine

Thanks Michael. I was able to modify your code a little to get it working. I'm sorry if I confused you.

So, what did you modify ?
It might help me get a better understanding of the process...

I'm not sure why I said it worked initially, as I just realised it wouldn't work so I changed the code back to your suggestion and it worked as wanted.

The process is that
  • if there is a late cancel, a set amount it still charged for the service.
  • There could be multiple rows with the same filter details, ie, request number and date.
  • When the row has been selected, the date and service type of that row is copied to a hidden sheet
  • Different services have different prices on different days
  • The new price to be charged is calculated in the hidden sheet and copied back to the original sheet.
