running for loop for different sheets based on value in other sheet

Folks

Below is my code and this calls up values in sheet 8

  For i = 2 To Sheet8.UsedRange.Rows.Count
      val1 = Range("A" & i).Value
      val2 = Range("B" & i).Value

How do I change the specifc loop to select different sheets based on another sheet value, i.e. like so:


 If Sheet1.Range("F1") = "5" Then
   For i = 2 To Sheet8.UsedRange.Rows.Count
 ElseIf Sheet1.Range("F1") = "9" Then
    For i = 2 To Sheet9.UsedRange.Rows.Count
 ElseIf Sheet1.Range("F1") = "O" Then
      For i = 2 To Sheet10.UsedRange.Rows.Count
End If

all help will do

Try this:

Sub Demo()

    Dim intSheetIndex As Integer

    Select Case Sheet1.Range("F1")
        Case Is = "5"
            intSheetIndex = 8
        Case Is = "9"
            intSheetIndex = 9
        Case Is = "O"
            intSheetIndex = 10
    End Select

    For i = 2 To Sheets(intSheetIndex).UsedRange.Rows.Count
        val1 = Range("A" & i).Value
        val2 = Range("B" & i).Value
    Next

End Sub

Thanks MS, if I move my sheets within the workbook, would this skew my index order then?

Yes it will, if you want you can adjust it to use the worksheet names.

Sub Demo()

    Dim strSheetName As String

    Select Case Sheet1.Range("F1")
        Case Is = "5"
            strSheetName = "Sheet8"
        Case Is = "9"
            strSheetName = "Sheet9"
        Case Is = "O"
            strSheetName = "Sheet10"
    End Select

    For i = 2 To Sheets(strSheetName).UsedRange.Rows.Count
        val1 = Range("A" & i).Value
        val2 = Range("B" & i).Value
    Next

End Sub
