Hi all,

I have been trying to finish this code for searching for Column descriptions (text in the first few rows) and then using that address as a starting point to loop through the cells in that column. I think I got the searching part down. My only problem now is to use the address property to return the column number so that I can use it in the Worksheets.Cells(#,#) syntax. Here is the code I got so far.

Code:
Sub FindingColumn()
Dim rngLook As Range, rngFound As Range, fndcell As Range
Dim strVal As String
Set rngLook = Worksheets(1).Rows("1:2")
Set rngFound = rngLook.Find(What:=strVal)
If Not rngFound Is Nothing Then
fndcell = rngFound.Address(False, False)
End If
...
...

End Sub


Any suggestions on how to proceed??

many thx's

Range(mystr).Column Returns the column number.
".Column" can appended to any range to give you the first column in the range.
Code:
Ex: Range("A1:H1").Column
= 1
Code:
Range("H1").Column
= 8

To get the last column you could do somthing like:
Code:
Range("C1:I1").Columns.Count + Range("C1:I1").Column - 1
Which is the number of columns in the range (7) + the number of the left colum(3) minus one becuase the left column is count twice by this addition.
