Hi...

I don't get it... perhaps somebody could explain this to me.

The macro below is to find a given value in a range. If I use the actual value in Find, there's no problem. If I try to feed same through a variable (preferred way), it bombs out.

Sooo... Where do I go wrong and more importantly, how to do this right? Thanx in advance for any enlightenment!

Regards...

Sub Macro3()
TBFound = Range("A1").Value ' say it is =50
Sheets("1").Range("b1:b10").Find(TBFound, xlValue).Select
' using 50 instead of TBFound in Find - works
' using TBFound gives error
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
ActiveCell.Value = TBFound
End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand
It's kind of hard to figure out where you are going with this. Can you tell us what you want the output to be?

Change:
Sheets("1").Range("b1:b10").Find(TBFound, xlValue).Select
to
Sheets("1").Range("b1:b10").Find(What:=TBFound).Select

Works for me.

To use a Var you need this syntax:


Dim Found As Range, myText$, FirstAddress$

myText = InputBox("Enter text to find")

If myText = "" Then Exit Sub

Set Found = .UsedRange.Find(what:=myText, LookIn:=xlValues, MatchCase:=False)

If Not Found Is Nothing Then
FirstAddress = Found.Address

Do

'your code to do whatever here!

Loop While Not Found Is Nothing And Found.Address <> FirstAddress
End If

Seti: it is a numeric value...

KenCriss: I am looking-up a control value (vector) in a frequently updated column 2 that returns the corresponding value from col 3. This far I'm OK. Now, I need to find this returned value and put it in the same row but next column. This works with a constant but not with a variable.

Datsmart: Works all right up to 8 decimals, but not beyond (eg: 95.50561797 is OK, 95.505617971 bombs out). As luck has it, I have to accomodate up to 14 decimals... In Fortran I'd specify double precision to fix this. Do you have a similar trick for Excel?

Thanx guys!

Does adding:

DIM TBFound as Double

at the beginning of your code help?
