Hi I have a piece of code StephenJR kindly provided me, i am looking for a slight amendment.

instead of searching the entire column (10) i would like it to stop at Row 10,000

Thanks
Seamus
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

Or even better, if the code counted Column A and used that as its indicator to how many rows to search...........

Seamus - try this:

With sheet1.range("J1",sheet1.range("J" & rows.count).end(xlup))

That should be:

With sheet1.range("J1:J" & sheet1.range("A" & rows.count).end(xlup).row)
