    Im looking for the VBA code to search a spreadsheet and find a specific word and replace it with another, but the replacement word has to be underlined.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Could give the following a shot:

    Sub ReplaceAndUnderline()
    Dim rFound As Range
    Dim szFirst As String
    Dim iCount As Integer
    Dim oldval As String
    Dim newval As String
    oldval = "test"
    newval = "testing"
    Set rFound = Cells.Find(what:=oldval, lookat:=xlWhole)
    iCount = 0
    Do While Not rFound Is Nothing
    If szFirst = "" Then
    szFirst = rFound.Address
    ElseIf rFound.Address = szFirst Then
    Exit Do
    End If
    rFound.Value = Application.Substitute(rFound.Value, _
    oldval, newval)
    rFound.Font.Underline = True
    iCount = iCount + 1
    Set rFound = Cells.FindNext(rFound)
    Loop
    End Sub

    Just change the oldval and newval strings.


    Cheers,

    Nate
