Hi shaniwafa,

Can you please give further information? In which way would you be searching for "Rose"? Will this be input in userform, in another cell or? In addition, can you please write where you want to see the result?

Without further information, I can provide you with following formula:
=ADDRESS(MATCH("Rose",B:B,0),2)

This formula will search for value "Rose" in column B and show the address of the value found.
