Hello,

I am doing a loop (kind of, i suppose) by using multiple macros. In macro27, i want to find "Problem_Closed", but if "Problem_Closed" does not exist, then exit the sub.

my problems lies in that "Problem_Closed" may exist once or may exist a thousand instances.

I am using Macro28 and Macro29 to repeat Macro27. This is very inefficient and takes a lot of time. But it does work.

is there a simpler way?


here is my code.....

Sub Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed()
ActiveSheet.UsedRange
Application.Goto Reference:="R1C1"
If Cells.Find What:="Problem_Closed_OR_Service_Closed", After:=ActiveCell, _
LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=True) Is Nothing Then
Exit Sub
End If
Cells.Find(What:="Problem_Closed_OR_Service_Closed", After:=ActiveCell, _
LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=True).Activate
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Range("A1").Select
Calculate
Selection.End(xlToLeft).Select
ActiveCell.Range("A1:AN1").Select
Selection.Cut
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
ActiveSheet.UsedRange
End Sub

Sub Macro28_repeat_Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed()
Application.Run "Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
Application.Run "Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
Application.Run "Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
Application.Run "Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
End Sub
Sub Macro29_repeat_Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed()
Application.Run "Macro28_repeat_Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
Application.Run "Macro28_repeat_Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
Application.Run "Macro28_repeat_Macro27_find_cut_and_paste_to_Closed"
Calculate
End Sub


thanks in advance.

Off the top of my head, without looking too deeply at your code (have a toothache today, sorry) it seems you are filling a cell with a 'flag' to be found by another routine.

If that 'flag' exists only for the benefit of program flow, and doesn't need to be there otherwise, you could take the Sub that normally creates the flag, convert to Function, and have it return a Boolean.
