Hi everyone,

I am working on a project to clean up an excel spreadsheet. I have two columns H & I, that have doctor specialties. I need to run a search in these two columns and find the specific text "Internal medicine" if this value is found, I need to copy that text into Column J. If any other text is found in columns H&I, that text needs to go into column K.

This is what I have so far:

Sub copyif()
Dim SrchRng As Range, cel As Range Set SrchRng = Range("h2:i2") For Each cel In SrchRng If Range("H2").Value = "Internal Medicine" And Range("I2").Value = "Internal Medicine" Then

End Sub


I don't know if I am starting this code correctly and can't figure out the code's copy portion.

I was using: =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH function but I need to find text in two columns and return the value "Internal Medicine" into Column j if that specific text is found and if any other text is found in Columns H&I then that text needs to be copied into column K. I am guessing VBA code is the only way to accomplish this task.

Select a column containing text numbers. Press Alt+D E F to quickly convert text to numbers. Faster than "Convert to Number"

Will "Internal Medicine" be the only contents of the cell, or will there be other text with it?
Also does it have to be in both H & I or just one of them?
One other thing if the text is not found do cols H & I have to be concatenated into K, or will only one of the columns have data?

Columns H& I have all sorts of specialties sometimes internal medicine is attached with other specialties but if the term Internal Medicine is in either or of these two columns I need the text Internal medicine to show up in J.

any text that is not internal medicine would just go in column K.

Does col K need to concatenate the text from H & I?

Ok, how about in J2
Excel Formula:
=IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Internal medicine",H2&I2)),"Internal Medicine","")
and K2
Excel Formula:
=SUBSTITUTE(LOWER(H2&" " & I2),"internal medicine","")
