Hi everyone,

the following code highlights particular cells in my spreadsheet, but sometimes this sheet doesn't contain any cells, just 2 header rows. Then it says "Runtime error 1004, no cells were found":

<pre>Sub highlight()
Dim Rng As Range, cell As Range
Set Rng = Range(Range("K3"), Range("K3").End(xlDown)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
For Each cell In Rng
If cell < cell.Offset(0, -1) Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 3
Next cell
End Sub</pre>

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

Try this instead: -

Code:
Sub highlight()
Dim Rng As Range, cell As Range
    On Error Resume Next
    Set Rng = Range(Range("K3"), Range("K3").End(xlDown)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
    If Err <> 0 Then MsgBox "No cells found!": Exit Sub
    On Error GoTo 0
  For Each cell In Rng
      If cell < cell.Offset(0, -1) Then cell.Font.ColorIndex = 3
  Next cell
End Sub
