Hello Chaps

How do I write a macro to ask the user to enter an amount, find that amount on my spreadsheet, and highlight the row in which that amount appears?

Many Thanks

Aki

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

You didn't specify a lot of conditions, so work with this:<pre>Sub FindAndSelect()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim What As Variant
What = Application.InputBox("Enter what you want to find", "Find", Type:=1)
If What = False Then Exit Sub
On Error Resume Next
Set Rng = Cells.Find(What, Range("A1"), xlValues, xlWhole, xlByRows, xlNext)
If Rng Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "Didn't find it"
Else
Rng.EntireRow.Select
Rng.Activate
End If
End Sub</pre>
