# Excel VBA to get cell value of intersection between two strings with unstable row

Posted on 2011-02-23

I am looking for a VBA code for the following task:

1) code to be started from ActiveWorkbook (dim wb1 as Workbook, wb1 = ActiveWorkbook)

2) check if more than two workbooks open - if yes MsgBox("You cannot have more than two workbooks open!") and exit, otherwise proceed to 3)

3) from the first sheet - Sheets(1) of the other open workbook (wb2), get the value from the cell where the string "Total Amount" in the first column of the sheet intersects with "Location Lease". The string "Location Lease" appears only once on the sheet, but not always in the same row (as I need to do this with a few dozen sheets) usually between row 3 and 10.

4) write the value from 3 to the wb1.ActiveCell and the name of the workbook one cell offset to the right.

5) Close wb2 without saving changes and exit

Thanks for your help!
