Hi,

I have a named range which is 6 columns wide and (say) 100 rows long.

I've got the following code where I am trying to filter out the range for "TaskID" and then build a string using the values of all the columns or matching rows.


For Each Row In rngComments
    If Row.Value = TaskID Then
        For j = 1 To 6
            strComBuild = strComBuild & "- " & Row.Item(j)
        Next j
    strComBuild = strComBuild & Chr(13)
    End If
Next

Open in new window


I have two questions really :
1 - How do I refer to each of the column values in the rows collection ?
2 - Is this the best way to do this ?

Thanks in advance.

Craig

You can loop through the rows and columns like this.
For Each rw In rngComment.Rows

          For Each cl in rw.Cells.Columns

         Next cl

Next rw

Open in new window


Is it a specific column in rngComments do you want to check for the TaskID?

Would that column be included in the string you are building or would it be just the rest of the values in the row?

I would like to know how to refer to a specific column.

In this case I will be using all the columns to form the string, but I would love to know how to refer to a specific column.

Thanks in advance,

If we use the rw from the code I posted this will refer to the 1st column in the row where rw is the row.
rw.Columns(1).Value

Open in new window

This will refer to the 3rd column.
rw.Columns(3).Value

Open in new window


To use the same syntax for looping through all the columns in the row.
For I = 1 To rw.Columns.Count

      strString = strString & "-" & rw.Columns(I).Value

Next I

Open in new window
