Excel VBA - Find row & column address in worksheet based on 2 match scenerios.

Hello Experts,

I have a worksheet where I need to derive the cell.address off 2 variables.

1st variable:
r = "C1" match to Range ("A1:A60") - this will be my row number of that found cell in range

2nd variable:
c = "C2" match to Range ("D1:X1) - this will be my column number of the found cell in range

Then my cell address would be .Cells(r, c) so I can finish my code.  

I am not remembering my stuff here; how to just get the row number or column number.

Thanks,
Michael

You can try

r=Range ("A1:A60").find("C1",,,xlwhole).Row
c=Range ("D1:X1").find("C2",,,xlwhole).column

if you declare two range objects (one for  Range ("A1:A60"), and one for  Range ("D1:X1"),  you can loop through each range searching for your criteria. Once you find your criteria you can get the address of the cell. Below is a genreal example.
Dim thisRange As Range
Set thisRange = Range("A1:A60") 
Dim searchValue As Integer
Dim targetAddress As String

Dim cell As Variant
searchValue = 21
For Each cell In thisRange
    If cell = searchValue Then
        targetAddress = cell.Address
    End If
Next cell

    Dim r As Long, c As Long
    
        r= Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(Range("C1"), Range("A1:A60"), 0)
        c= Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(Range("C2"), Range("D1:X1"), 0)
