Hi,

I am looking for some vba code to loop down Column J, and if it finds the word "Sel" then multiply the adjacent cell in Column O by -1

Has anyone anything for that?

Thanks
Seamus

Seamus - try this:
Sub x()
  
Dim rFind As Range, sAddr As String
 
With Sheet1.Columns(10)
    Set rFind = .Find(What:="Sel", LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
    If Not rFind Is Nothing Then
        sAddr = rFind.Address
        Do
            rFind.Offset(, 5) = -1 * rFind.Offset(, 5)
            Set rFind = .FindNext(rFind)
         Loop While rFind.Address <> sAddr
    End If
End With
     
End Sub
