Hi All, Firstly refer to my question in
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_27661689.html

That solution is good, but I have one problem.

Firstly, the data  returned in the line
For Each r In rProd returns values (numeric) as expected even though the cells are actually references to another sheet and cell.

Likewise when this line is exected, the column has references elsewhere. They will evaulate to the same but are not found.

That is r will be say 148, but .Find will not find that as .Find is a string search - and the cell will have saheetname!$a$1 for instance.

How can I search the column on the evaluated values?

The rest of the code is perfect and performs exactly as needed.

Replace:
Set rFind = .Find(What:=r, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)

Open in new window

with:
Set rFind = .Find(What:=r, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)

Open in new window
