I have the following code on a command button:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Message, Title, Default, SearchString
Message = "Enter your search string!" ' Set prompt.
Title = "Find ? On all sheets!" ' Set title.
Default = "" ' Set default.
' Display message, title, and default value.
SearchString = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)

'SearchString = "Rob"
Set S = Sheets.Application
For Each S In Application.Sheets
With S.Range("A1:IV65536")
Set F = .Find(SearchString, MatchCase:=True, LookAt:=xlWhole, LookIn:=xlValues)
If F Is Nothing Then
Else
Location = F.Address
S.Select
Range(Location).Select
Exit For
End If
End With
Next S
End Sub


How can I modify this so that instead of selecting the cell that matches the search string, it will instead go three cells to the right of that cell and enter today as a hard date (i.e. not updated on subsequent days)?

Many thanks.

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

This perhaps.
Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim Message, Title, Default, SearchString
    Message = "Enter your search string!" ' Set prompt.
    Title = "Find ? On all sheets!" ' Set title.
    Default = "" ' Set default.
    ' Display message, title, and default value.
    SearchString = InputBox(Message, Title, Default)

    'SearchString = "Rob"
    Set S = Sheets.Application
    For Each S In Application.Sheets
        With S.Range("A1:IV65536")
            Set f = .Find(SearchString, MatchCase:=True, LookAt:=xlWhole, LookIn:=xlValues)
            If Not f Is Nothing Then
                f.Offset(, 3) = Date
                Exit For
            End If
        End With
    Next S
    
End Sub
