Code loosing focus

In the code below the For statement
     For i = 0 To 2
      dest2.Offset(0, comp(1, i)) = orig_comp.Offset(0, comp(0, i))
    Next i

should still be  seeing the value  from the If statement below but is looking at Sheet4

  If r(1, 1).Offset(0, 4) = 0 Then
    dest.Value = r(1, 1).Value
    Dim c As Integer
    c = r(1, 1).Row


Sub DiagnoseData(Optional NoUse As Integer)
Dim r As Range, headr As Range
Dim dest As Range, s As String, i As Integer
Dim total As Range, dest2 As Range
Dim orig_comp As Range
Dim comp(0 To 1, 0 To 10) As Integer
Dim protExc As Boolean, protM3PM As Boolean

ClearSheet "Exceptions", 1
protExc = IsProtected("Exceptions")
protM3PM = IsProtected("Missing 3PM prices")

If protExc Then
  Sheet2.Unprotect Bpwd
End If

If protM3PM Then
  Sheet3.Unprotect Bpwd
End If

Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Set r = Sheet19.Range("A3:D3") ' Exceptions Sheet
Set headr = Sheet19.Range("A2:D2") 'CUSIP tmp sheet
Set dest = Worksheets("Exceptions").Range("A2")
Set dest2 = Sheet3.Range("A2") 'Missing 3 PM prices tab
Set orig_comp = Sheet4.Range("A3") 'Compare sheet line
comp(0, 0) = FindCol("Compare", 2, "Security CUSIP")
comp(0, 1) = FindCol("Compare", 2, "Exchange")
comp(0, 2) = FindCol("Compare", 2, "Security description")
comp(1, 0) = FindCol("Missing 3PM prices", 1, "CUSIP")
comp(1, 1) = FindCol("Missing 3PM prices", 1, "Exchange")
comp(1, 2) = FindCol("Missing 3PM prices", 1, "Security description")
While r(1, 1) <> ""
  If r(1, 1).Offset(0, 4) = 0 Then 'missing prices
    dest.Value = r(1, 1).Value

    Dim c As Integer
    c = r(1, 1).Row
''''this is where problem is - needs to retain value from the above If statement
            For i = 0 To 2
      dest2.Offset(0, comp(1, i)) = orig_comp.Offset(0, comp(0, i))
    Next i

    Set dest = dest.Offset(1, 0) 'Exceptions
    Set dest2 = dest2.Offset(1, 0) 'missingprices
  End If
  Set orig_comp = orig_comp.Offset(1, 0)
  Set fairval = fairval.Offset(1, 0)
  Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)

I'm a little confused.

In the If statement r refers to a range on a sheet with codename Sheet19 and dest refers to a worksheet with the tab name 'Exceptions'.

In the loop dest2 refers to a worksheet with the codename Sheet3 and orig_comp refers to a range on a sheet with codename Sheet4.

So how does the if statemtent refer to Sheet4?

Also, the code in the loop is referring to Sheet4.

I am really confused and not sure if I can give insite.  

Should take items that are on Sheet 19 (Cusip_tmp) column A and insert into Exceptions (that is OK)
then take same value from sheet 19 column A and input to sheet3 column A with values and then add values from Sheet 4 column L and put in column B on sheet3 and column F from sheet 4 and put into Column C on sheet3

somehow the exceptions piece is working fine, but not dest2

   Set dest = dest.Offset(1, 0) 'Exceptions
    Set dest2 = dest2.Offset(1, 0) 'missingprices

Thanks for even looking at.

I am going to keep this open but also post another work around in another post.  If someone can explain to me what this code is doing - that would be helpful.  I have been looking at for a while.

Could you attach a sample file?

That might help shed some light on what's going on.

One thing that I can see that could cause problem is using a mix of codenames and tab names.

Also this notation can be confusing.
r(1, 1).Value

If you want to refer to a specific cell in a range it might be clearer to use something like this.

Open in new window

That might just be me though.:)

No - I was seeing also that might be an issue but did not know what to add exactly.
