Hey...quick question guys!

I have created a macro to seach through a long list of data looking for the key word "*Delisted*".  This macro works great, but now I want it to also look for "*Delisted*" or "*=*".  Thus my goal is to have it find eithier of these two words.  Attached is the code I have currently...

Thanks! Sorry if this is an easy question...I'm still learning VBA

Sub Copy_Delisted_Tickers()
Dim wb As Workbook, ws As Worksheet, ws_d As Worksheet, rng As Range, cel As Range

Set wb = ActiveWorkbook
Set ws = Worksheets("Reuters Data Check Tool")
Set rng = Intersect(ws.Columns("G"), ws.UsedRange) ' change to 'Description' column
Set ws_d = Worksheets("Delisted Report")

ws.Columns("B").Copy
ws.Columns("G").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone

Sheets("Delisted Report").Select
Range("A2:A1000").Select
Selection.ClearContents

'ws_d.UsedRange.Offset(1).ClearContents

Set ws = ActiveSheet
For Each cel In rng
     If Not IsEmpty(cel) And Not IsError(cel) Then
        If cel.Value Like "*=*" Then
            cel.Offset(0, -6).Copy
            ws_d.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1).PasteSpecial xlAll
        End If
    End If
Next cel

ws_d.Move Before:=Sheets(4)
wb.Worksheets("ADR Report").Move Before:=Sheets(4)
ws_d.Tab.ColorIndex = 5

Sheets("Reuters Data Check Tool").Select
Range("D2").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("Info").Select
Range("H13").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
    :=False, Transpose:=False
Range("H14").Select

Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Call Recalc_FactSet_Data

End Sub
