Is the a piece of code that will enable me to select the entire row and copy that row from the cell I have landed on. i.e. My macro looks for a specific word, when it finds the word it selects the cell. Lets say I am on cell P32, can I then select the entire row 32?

I am using 2010

Thank you

If you have selected the cell it is simply


ActiveCell.Row

eg

MsgBox "The row is " & ActiveCell.Row

and if you want to go on and select that row

Dim x As Long
x = ActiveCell.Row

Rows(x).Select

You can select the entire row like this.
Rows(ActiveCell.Row).Select

Open in new window


And you can copy the row, without selecting, like this.
Rows(ActiveCell.Row).Copy

Open in new window
