I want to be able to check (This is the first With statement) if a certain cell value ("H4" in this example) in the open worksheet (I refer to this worksheet as Sheet1 as it is Sheet1 in my workbook) where the code is being written (what is the proper naming scheme for this worksheet where the code is being written, I would like to know) is present in cell A of another worksheet ("HE 171" is the sheet name, I refer to it as "HE171" in this example) in a different workbook ("Md"Main database in this example);

and then if it IS present in the Main Database, I would like to check if (this is the second With statement) the value of that certain cell (again "H4") is present in the Changes Database workbook ("Cd" in this example) in the worksheet "Changes" (The sheet is named "Changes" in this example)

VBA Code:
Option Explicit


Dim Cd As Workbook
Dim Md As Workbook

Dim Changes As Worksheet
Dim HE171 As Worksheet

Dim nConfirmation As Integer

'Actions for when the "Confirm Changes" button is clicked
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()


    Set Cd = Workbooks.Open("\FILEPATH\Technology_Changes\Changes_Database_IRR_20-2S_New.xlsm")
    Set Md = Workbooks.Open("\FILEPATH\Database_IRR 20-2S New.xlsm")


    Set Changes = Cd.Sheets("Changes")
      
    On Error Resume Next
    
    Set HE171 = Md.Sheets("HE 171")


    'Creating the "Yes or No" message box displayed when operators click the "Confirm Changes" button on the Operator Sheet
    nConfirmation = MsgBox("Do you want to send a notification about the sheet update?", vbInformation + vbYesNo, "Sheet Updates")

    'Declares the variable for the string that we will be finding, which is the key in this case (for the With statement)
    Dim FindString As String

    'Declares the variable for the range in which we will be locating the string (for the With statement)
    Dim RNG As Range

    'Sets the string we need to find as the key value which is in cell "H4" of the Operator sheet (for the With Statement)
    FindString = Sheet1.Range("H4").Value

    'Actions if "YES" is clicked when the "Confirm Changes" button is clicked on the Operator Sheet
    If nConfirmation = vbYes Then

        'Opens and activates the Main Database workbook, with "HE 171" as the active sheet
        HE171.Activate

        'Temporarily unprotects the Main Database Workbook and Operator sheet (this is the sheet the code is in)
        ActiveSheet.Unprotect "Swrf"
        Sheet1.Unprotect "Swrf"

        'Searches all of column A in the Main Database in sheet "HE 171" for the string(key)
        With ActiveSheet.Range("A:A")            'searches all of column A
            Set RNG = .Find(What:=FindString, _
                            After:=.Cells(.Cells.Count), _
                            LookIn:=xlValues, _

                            MatchCase:=False)
        'End With
            '////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

            'Actions if the key is present in column A of the MAIN database

Currently, when I run the code for the first time, it is creating a new row for me in both external worksheets ("Changes" from one workbook, "HE171" from another) it is not present in either workbook, but it fails to copy over any values (in "K" cells from Sheet1 (the worksheet where the code is present) over to the respective cells in the "Changes" sheet (Module 8 is supposed to perform this, here it is below);
