I don't know what you really looking for but if you only want to find in one particular Sheet you shouldn't even loop though sheet collection. it's just not necessary.

pnc, I think that what you are trying to do is to return the number of rows in each sheet, assuming that the first cell in the last row of each sheet contains "ASSETS". If this is the case then the following example would probably help.

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    Dim xlsApp As Excel.Application
    Dim xlsWB As Excel.Workbook
    Dim xlsWS As Excel.Worksheet
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xlsApp = GetObject(, "Excel.Application") 'look for a running copy of Excel
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then 'If Excel is not running then
        Set xlsApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application") 'run it
    End If
    Set xlsWB = xlsApp.Workbooks.Open(C:\powerSTEPS\NIAtemplate.xlt)
    xlsApp.Visible = True
    Set xlsWS = xlsWB.Sheets("Sheet1")
    MsgBox "Record Count: " & CStr(xlsWS.Rows.CurrentRegion.Rows.Count)
    xlsApp.Quit
    Set xlsApp = Nothing
End Sub

Try this
xlSheet is WorkSheet
xlSheet.Rows.Find "ASSEST"

This will find your string ASSEST

OfCourse you can then loop and store it however you want.

pnc, as you haven't responded, I am assuming that the answer you got was from either myself or Marine so I am proposing this as an answer.
