Sub Asearch()
Dim FindToday As Integer
FindToday = WorksheetFunction.Match(Date, Sheets("Charts").Range("A:A"), 0)
If FindToday Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "Not found"
    MsgBox "Found on row " & FindToday
End If
End Sub

this gives me a 'Type Mismatch'

Then try this

Sub Asearch()
Dim FindToday As Integer
On Error Resume Next
FindToday = Application.Match(Date * 1, Sheets("Charts").Range("A:A"), 0)
On Error GoTo 0
If FindToday = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Not found"
    MsgBox "Found on row " & FindToday
End If
End Sub

For Each Cell in Range("A:A")

If Cell.Value2 = Date * 1
Then R = Cell.Row
Exit Sub
End If
Next Cell

Open in new window

This will give the first occurence of today's date, if you want the last occurence remove line 5 "Exit Sub".
