I have a button that when pressed uses an InputBox to ask for a date. The user enters a date and then VBA should search the worksheet for the date the user entered and return the entire row(s) that had the date specified. So far, I have the input box, a little validation, a match function and a loop. I get an error on "info!" in the line (If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(info!, usrInput) = 0) that says Type mismatch. This is where I get stuck, I am currently googling but thought I would post here as well. if this code will do what I need it to once the type error gets sorted out, how can I return the entire row(s) if it has the date searched for?

VBA Code:
Sub Search()
usrInput = InputBox("Please enter a date", "search", "enter date as DD/MM/YYYY")
If usrInput = "" Then Exit Sub

If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(info!, usrInput) = 0 Then
MsgBox "Not found"
Else

rr = WorksheetFunction.Match(usrInput, info!, 0)
For c = 1 To 45 'range of columns to search'
Data = Data & Cells(rr, c) & "-"
Next c
MsgBox (Data)
End If

End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.

your worksheet function need a range as input info! is not a range it is the name of a workhseet ( I presume) try this:
VBA Code:
Sub Search()
Dim wr As Range

usrInput = InputBox("Please enter a date", "search", "enter date as DD/MM/YYYY")
If usrInput = "" Then Exit Sub
Set wr = Worksheets("info").UsedRange

If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(wr, usrInput) = 0 Then
MsgBox "Not found"
Else

rr = WorksheetFunction.Match(usrInput, wr, 0)
For c = 1 To 45 'range of columns to search'
Data = Data & Cells(rr, c) & "-"
Next c
MsgBox (Data)
End If

End Sub

Thank you for your input, I am now getting a run-time error '1004' Unable to get the Match Property of the worksheetfunction class. currently googling to see if I can solve myself but if see this before then any idea why the Match function isn't working?

Never use WorksheetFunction except if you wanna see your VBA procedure crashing when the Excel function returns an error !​
Use Application rather than WorksheetFunction and check the Excel function result with VBA functions IsError or IsNumeric …​
As a reminder the Excel MATCH function can search only in a single column or row so use the VBA Range.Find method instead …​

I fixed my issue by the below code:

Dim key As Variant
Dim c As Range
Dim firstaddress As String
Dim n As Integer
n = 0

key = InputBox("Please enter a date", "Search")

With Worksheets("Data").Range("date_range")
Set c = .Find(key, LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
firstaddress = c.Address
Do
c.EntireRow.Copy Sheets("Search").Range("A2").Offset(n, 0)
Set c = .FindNext(c)
n = n + 1
Loop While Not c Is Nothing
End If
End With
