Hi guys, I was hoping someone could give me some advice.

I'm running a Find through a specific selection. It works perfectly except for when the value it is searching for is not present in the selection. I tried to use the On Error command but the run time error box still comes up? Is there another way I can divert the macro if the value I am searching for is not found in the selection? (I need to take into account that sometimes the macro will search for values that are not in the selection.



Thanks for your help

Code:
Selection.Find(What:=OfficeRecNo, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt _
        :=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase _
        :=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
 

Excel Facts

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.
Hi there

EDITTED:

Try this:

On Error GoTo OUT
Selection.Find(What:="OfficeRecNo", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas _
, LookAt:=xlwhole, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False).Activate
OUT:
End Sub

regards
Derek

Code:

If Not c Is Nothing Then
c.Select
