I am looking for an excel macro code to do the following:

If the name "Jane Doe" is in column H then I need the name "John Doe" dropped into column I.


Thank you in advance for any help provided.

Where would Excel find John Doe to know that it should go into column I. Is it shown somewhere else in a relationship to Jane Doe? Give us some more details on worksheet/workbook layout and arrangement.

Jane Doe is find in column H and name repeats multiple times in column H, if the name Jane Doe is found in column H then I would like to drop the name John Doe into column I. John Doe is currently not on worksheet.

Thanks,
Tara

I suspect that there is more to this than a simple insertion of a name, but I will give you a simple code for this specific request. Keep in mind that this is specific to Jane Doe and will not work for any other names.

Code:
Sub JaneDoe
Dim i as long, lr as long
lr = range("A" & rows.count).end(xlup).row
For i = 1 to lr
If instr(Range("H" & i),"Jane Doe")>0 then
Range("I" & i)= "John Doe"
End if
Next i
End Sub
