Error Despite Error Statement

I have the following snippet of code:

<font face=Courier New><SPAN style="color:#00007F">On</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">Error</SPAN> <SPAN style="color:#00007F">GoTo</SPAN> Alpha<br>LstRw = Cells.Find(What:=(B), After:=Cells(1, 1), SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext).Row<br></FONT>


Now when B is not found, which is supposed to B a common occurence, it is supposed to goto a different section of the macro. Instead, I am getting the error statement "object variable not set." B is a variant and is established early in the macro. Anybody got any ideas?

If got an idea - don't use On Error or GoTo.

Rich (BB code):
Set Found = Cells.Find(What:=(B), After:=Cells(1, 1), SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext)
 
If Not Found Is Nothing Then
  LstRow = Found.Row
  ' rest of code
Else
  MsgBox "B not found."
End If

Its not working. Now if it does not find a term it simply sails through the codes and errs later in the macro. I really need to stick to the "On Error Goto" theme. Also, I need the LstRow to be assigned a value based on find if it is in the search area. With that in mind, can you help me with this?

Pretty hard to help without seeing the rest of the code.:)

It is spaghetti code and over 50 lines of macro. I know how you feel about spaghetti code. Are you willing to look it over or should I just post again? The suspence is killing me!

Try this, although I don't like GoTos

Code:
Dim Found As Range
Set Found = Cells.Find(What:=(B), After:=Cells(1, 1), SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext)
If Found Is Nothing Then GoTo Alpha
LstRw = Found.Row

I know. I don't like them either but once I learned enough VBA to make a living with it, there has been little time to learn more. Thanks for the extra help. Thank you to Norie, it makes sense now.
