Below is some Excel VBA Macro code that can be used in any Excel Spreadsheet or Worksheet. The purpose of the code is to enhance Excel's standard Find feature found under Edit>Find.
Let's say you have 2 columns of data. You need to find the word "Black" in one column and the word "Cat" in the other. Both words must be on the same row for their to be a match. The standard Excel Find cannot do this. However, using the code below it becomes possible.
Tip: If the 2 columns are say Column "D" and Column "H", select Column "D" then hold down the Ctrl key and select Column "H".
To use the code, push Alt+F11 and go to Insert>Module.
Now paste in the code below. Click the top right X to get back to Excel and
Now assign the macro to a control button , textbox etc or push Alt+F8 and click the macro "DualFind" the "Run"
Sub DualFind() Dim vFind1 As String, vFind2 As String Dim rFound As Range, lLoop As Long Dim bFound As Boolean Dim rLookIn1 As Range, rLookIn2 As Range If Selection.Columns.Count <> 2 And Selection.Areas.Count = 1 Then MsgBox "Must select 2 columns to search",vbOKOnly, "ozgrid.com" Exit Sub ElseIf Selection.Areas.Count = 1 Then MsgBox "Must select 2 columns to search",vbOKOnly, "ozgrid.com" Exit Sub End If vFind1 = InputBox("Find What: First value?", "FIND FIRST VALUE") If vFind1 = vbNullString Then Exit Sub vFind2 = InputBox("Find What: Second value?", "FIND SECOND VALUE") If vFind2 = vbNullString Then Exit Sub If Selection.Areas.Count > 1 Then Set rLookIn1 = Selection.Areas(1).Columns(1) Set rLookIn2 = Selection.Areas(2).Columns(1) Else Set rLookIn1 = Selection.Columns(1) Set rLookIn2 = Selection.Columns(2) End If Set rFound = rLookIn1.Cells(1, 1) For lLoop = 1 To WorksheetFunction.CountIf(rLookIn1, vFind1) Set rFound = rLookIn1.Find(What:=vFind1, After:=rFound, LookAt:=xlWhole) If UCase(rLookIn2.Cells(rFound.Row, 1)) = UCase(vFind2) Then bFound = True Exit For End If Next lLoop< If bFound = True Then MsgBox "Match found", vbInformation, "ozgrid.com" Range(rFound, rLookIn2.Cells(rFound.Row, 1)).Select Else MsgBox "Sorry, no match found", vbInformation, "ozgrid.com" End If End Sub
