Hi,

I have a spreadsheet containing a lot of data. I would like to search a column (column A) for a number entered in an userform and return the value in the corresponding cell next to it (column B) to a textbox in the userform.

How do I do that?

let's suppose that the textbox where the value will be entered is textbox1 and the result will be displayed is called textbox2.
dim result as variant
dim lookupvalue as variant

lookupvalue = textbox1.text
result = application.worksheetfunction.vlookup(lookupvalue,range("A:B"),2,0)

textbox2.text = result

Open in new window

I changed the lookupvalue data type to Double as all data is decimal numbers.
But what if I also would like to return values from column D and G?

then you'll have to
1) declare new variables to populate those results
2) determine to which textbox'es those results will be win
3) adapt the vlookup's parameters to the new realities, for instance:

result1 = application.worksheetfunction.vlookup(lookupvalue,range("A:B"),2,0)
result2 = application.worksheetfunction.vlookup(lookupvalue,range("A:D"),4,0)
result3 = application.worksheetfunction.vlookup(lookupvalue,range("A:G"),7,0)

textbox2.text = result1
textbox3.text = result1
textbox4.text = result1


if you're good at working with vlookup inside Excel, you'll see that from within the code it's pretty much the same thing :-)

p.s.: the names I used are examples, in your code you'll probably have to adapt it...
