# Find specific text in cell then copy all rows with that text

This has probably been asked in a similar way before but I cannot find the exact code I need which is:

In Sheet named 'Actual' find the first occurance of the word 'House' then copy that row and all other rows below it that contain the word 'house' in the same column, and paste these in Sheet 'Reporting'

Thanks

You can do this simply with formulas.

First add a helper column to the Actual sheet... in a new column, assuming column X enter a formula in row 2 like:

=IF(A2="House",COUNT(X\$1:X1)+1,"")  and copy down.

replace X with the column you are putting the formula in.

Now in your summary sheet in row 2 enter formula:

=IFERROR(INDEX(Actual!A:A,MATCH(ROWS(\$A\$2:\$A2),Actual!\$X:\$X,0)),"")

again replacing the X with the column you put the helper formula in.

copied across the number of columns required returned, then down as far as desired.

NB_VC this is part of a bigger Macro so I would prefer to have VBA code. But thanks anyway

Similar issue solved. Give it a look, with a little adaptation I think it should work for you as well.

Hi,

pls try

``````With Sheets("Actual")
Set c = .Cells.Find("House", LookIn:=xlValues)
If Not c Is Nothing Then
Do
strRange = strRange & c.Row & ":" & c.Row & ","
Set c = .Cells.FindNext(c)
End If
strRange = Left(strRange, Len(strRange) - 1)
.Range(strRange).Copy
End With
Sheets("Actual").Range(strRange).Copy Sheets("Reporting").Range("A1")
``````

Rgonzo1971 I am happy to post as new but, is it possible to make a small amendment to make the macro look for the word in a specific column i.e. 'H'

As I say happy to post as new.

Rgonzo1971 sorry one more request. When running the macro today there were no items with the specific words so it falls over at
strRange = Left(strRange, Len(strRange) - 1)

with Invalid procedure call or argument. Can you help me with this.

Thanks
