Please take a look at the attached workbook and let me know how to modify the macro below so that it returns only the full string when its presence is detected in a table that includes partial strings as well.

In fact if there is a simpler way to zero in on any combo of 2 or more contiguous letters drawn from a set string (in this case "ABCDEFGHJKL") without the need for the table in the first place, please let me know that as well.


Thanks,
John
Sub FindStrings()
Dim cel As Range, x As Long, y As Long, z As String
x = [MyCell].Row
y = 50
    For Each cel In [Table1]
    If Len(cel) > 2 Then
    cel.Select
         If InStr([MyCell], cel) > 0 Then
        Cells(x, y).End(xlToLeft).Offset(0, 1) = cel
        End If
    End If
    Next
End Sub
