Hey Everyone! I am currently working on an extremely large Excel workbook that contains all the assets of college wing. I would like to have an embedded search box at the top of my spreadsheet where someone could enter a word or item number, hit a search or enter button, and all results within the worksheet would be highlighted(with a specific colour) and the person could scroll through and look at them all. I've only been playing around with macros and some VBA over the last couple days so I'm def a newbie! I need this to be a SUPER user-friendly application since most people searching this worksheet aren't Excel-savvy at all! Thanks sooo much in advance! ~ Abbie
