Hi,

I have looked in a number of places to find some code that will do the following, but my search has been unsuccessful so far.

I know which row in my worksheet I want to use as the bounds for defining my range, but the only way I can identify this row is that the second column contains a particular piece of text (string).

Is there anyway you can define a range based on a row with text criteria?

Nickos. :biggrin:

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.

Hi Nickos

You can find the cell where the text is with the method Find (Check the help).

Use that cell to build your range.

Hope this helps
PGC
