Compare values in 2 Excel columns using VB to enter a new value in a 3rd column

Last Modified: 2011-09-20
Hello, I would like to run a macro that looks for name in one column and if it find the name look for a not value in another and if it matches the two conditions enter a new value in a third column. so

If column A has a list of names I want the macro to first search for "Smith" for example. If it finds an instance of Smith I want it to look at Column B in the same row and look for "<> Tall". If it find an instance where there is a Smith in Column A and a "<> Tall" in column B it will enter "Short Smith" in Column C.
