Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help to combine Module 1 and 2 code. This is to allow data search result displayed at the SearchData (A5 and E11) sheet simultaneously based on search value at cell F2. I have attached the workbook together with the anticipated sample result at SearchData sheet for Experts perusal. Hope Experts will help me to combine these 2 modules.

Hi,

Thanks for the file. I have tested, its not showing the right result. Column A5 to D needs to show data from Total sheet and cell E11:F displayed result from sheet Validation. Hope you will help me to fix this.

Hi Pari123,

Thanks for the file. Have tested, the search function only return for Validation sheet (E11:F11), but not  for the Total sheet (A5:D).

Hi Ardhendu,

The macro will look for the matched first 5 alphabets  at Total and Validation sheet if we entered search value at Cell F2 . e.g. if we type "AYDCC", all data at Total sheet will be displayed at (E11:F11) and at the same time matched data at (A5:D). If we type "Number", the result will show the data which is matched with the typed number at cell F2. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Cartillo,
I think I have got this to work right now.

1. I have changed the code to accept two search strings - One for Total and one for Validation.
2. I also fixed the error where the validation was not returning values for the Totals sheet too.

This worked for me, can you please test this once?

Thank you for your patience,

Regards,
Ardhendu
