Does anyone know of a function or formula that I can use to return the cell number of a cell with a specific value in a given range?

For instance in cells A1:A30 I want to know the cell number (A3, etc.) of a cell that contains the value "RENEW."

Thanks, MK

Highlight Duplicates
Home, Conditional Formatting, Highlight Cells, Duplicate records, OK to add pink formatting to any duplicates in selected range.
Try this:
Finding_First_Positive.xls
ABCD
1RenewA1
2A3
3RenewA6
4 
5 
6Renew 
Sheet2


Formula in B1 is:
=IF(ROW($A2)-ROW($A$1)>COUNTIF($A$1:$A$285,"RENEW"),"","A"&SMALL(IF($A$1:$A$285="RENEW",ROW($A$1:$A$285)),ROW($A2)-ROW($A$1)))

Which must be evaluated with the Ctrl+Shift+enter key combo
Then, copy down the formula.

From another message board posting:
=CELL("address",INDEX(B4:D9,MIN(IF((1-ISBLANK(B4:D9))*(B4:D9=F5),ROW(B4:D9)-ROW(B4)+1)),MIN(IF((1-ISBLANK(B4:D9))*(B4:D9=F5),COLUMN(B4:D9)-COLUMN(B4)+1))))

Edit a cell, put the above into the cell's formula bar, and confirm it with the combination of CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. The cell where you put this formula will then look for your value contained in F5 and return the corresponding cell reference from the range of B4 to D9


B4 to D9 represents the search area to be compared to the value stored in F5.

The other posting was titled "Cell Address FORMULA" and was posted by pegbol if you want to look for it for further clarification. I think there were some add-on questions related to this as well ni that posting.
