I need to add a page break in my VBA code.

I need to insert it when it finds the last value of column E that begins with OV. Once it finds the last row with that beginning value then I need to add a page break. How can I do this?

Try this. Do remember to replace "Sheet1" with the respective sheet name.

Sub Sample()
    Dim i As Long, LastRow As Long
    
    LastRow = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    
    For i = LastRow To 1 Step -1
        If UCase(Left(Sheets("Sheet1").Range("E" & i).Value, 2)) = "OV" Then
            Sheets("Sheet1").Range("E" & i + 1).Select
            ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.HPageBreaks.Add before:=ActiveCell
            ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.VPageBreaks.Add before:=ActiveCell
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Next i
End Sub

Open in new window

It's faster to use excel's search within vba to search up for "OV".

Can you explain what you mean about Excel's search within VBA?

Yes you are right and I have been a biggest advocate of .Find(). However when you need to find just one last value in the column then the above loop will also do :)
