Search column for ComboBox Value in column and return Row text

Hi,

I am pretty new to VBA and still learning the ropes as it were.  

I have a userform where staff can select their names from a ComboBox and press a "Cancel Parts Request" button, which would return the last 15 data rows they entered using their Username from the ComboBox to filter on.  

I would like to be able to search for the last 15 (or whatever number) of entries by a user, based on their name, which is entered in Column I and return the text in those rows.

I have been using the find function but I can't get it to recognize the name  in the ComboBox.  This is what I have so far:

Dim rngSearch As Range, rngFound As Range
Set rngSearch = Range("I:I")
Set rngFound = rngSearch.Find(What:="ComboBox1.Value", LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart)
If rngFound Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "No Parts Request Found"
Else
MsgBox rngFound.Row
End If

I keep getting the "No Parts Request Found" message no matter what name is entered in ComboxBox1.  Also I have no idea how to search for the last 15 entries from the bottom of the data and only return the data in these rows.  Does anyone know the best way of achieving this?  

Many thanks,

Daniel

Probably ComboBox1.Text, not Value.

Dim lngLastRow as Long
Dim lngIndex As Long
Dim bFound As Boolean
' This assumes the data is in column 'I'
lngLastRow = Range("I65536").End(xlUp).Row

For lngIndex =  lngLastRow to lngLastRow - 15 Step -1
    ' '9' is column I
    If Instr(Cells(lngIndex, 9).Value, Combobox1.Text) > 0 Then 
        MsgBox lngIndex
        bFound = True
    End If
End If

If Not bFound Then
    MsgBox "No Parts Request Found"
End If

Hi Thanks for the feeback!  Sorry it took so long to respond!  This works pretty good, however I think there is something else wrong with my code as when the loop is complete I am getting Error 1004 run time coming up.
