Hello,

Trying to build a macro to perform the following.  I have a macro with a variable: strData = Sheets("Control").Cells(18, 2).  What I need is the find a match of strData in Sheets("Control") column "M" and once a match is found take the value from Sheets("Outlook") cells AA3, AB3, AC3, AD3 AE3 and AF3 and place them in the matching row in column O for the value of AA3, column P for the value of AB3, Column Q for the value of AC3 and so on.

Ok, simple macro to search column M for data match at control sheet row 18 column 2.  Paste AA3->AF3 into matching row, but starting in column O.

Attached code functions as requested, below.

Also see attached worksheet demonstrating effectiveness.

Enjoy!

Sub FindMatchCopyPaste()
Dim strData As Range, rFound As Range

    Set strData = Sheets("Control").Cells(18, 2)
    
    On Error Resume Next
    With Sheets("Control")
        Set rFound = .Columns("M").Find(What:=strData.Value, After:=.Cells(1, "M"), LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:= _
            xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
            , SearchFormat:=False)
    
        On Error GoTo 0
    
        If Not rFound Is Nothing Then
            Range(.Cells(rFound.Row, "O"), .Cells(rFound.Row, "T")).Value = Range([Outlook!AA3], [Outlook!AF3]).Value
        Else
            MsgBox "Item Not Found", vbOKOnly
        End If
    End With


End Sub
