Assuming 2007 is as 2003 then when you find your datun use searchResult.entirerow.select

Sorry

Keyboard trouble ... as far as I know we should not be using proposed solution and I certainly didn't mean to select it.

In Macro, after you find, you can use the VBA code like the following

Dim r as Range
r = Range("A2:B10")
r = r.Find(...)
r.EntireRow.Cut
.. paste..

Dim sRange As Range
'
    Set sRange = Cells.Find(What:="fred", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt _
        :=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:= _
        False, SearchFormat:=False)

Okay

Apologies I assumed too much.

You want a process that will find a string and when found will move it.

How do you want to call the process and what kind of movement is involved ... end of sheet new sheet or whatever?

Chris.
I want to find all and then when selected the data found it only selects the cell that was in the search criteria.What i want is when found i should be able to select the whole row and move them to new sheet.

APologies but can I ask:

You want to find all rows which have the search datum somewhere in the row such that only the cells with the datum are selected but to be able to expand the selection so that each of these row(s) will be selected if and only if 'requested' by the user.

Is this a correct understanding?

Chris i shall give you an example.
Say i want to search for "Sharath" in the excel sheet

Colum A                        Colum   B
Sharath                             Reddy

So when i search "Sharath" the colum A data is highlighted and i can copy the cell to another place.
Now what i want is when i search for "Sharath" i shouls be able to select the whole row.

So " sharath  Reddy " both the cells have to be copied.

This would be useful when i search for a data which is available in 100's of rows.I should be able to select the whole row.

If you want to do this row by row then to expand the range to whole row simply click the row number at the far left.

If you want to do this for all rows with (sharath) then this will require a simple macro .

1. Find : find all : and ctrl + a to select ... at this point you have the required cells of data selected.
2. If you require rows selecting then call rowsel
3. Copy and paste to your destination.

Chris


Sub rowsel()
    Selection.EntireRow.Select
End Sub
