I am using this code to find a word

Range("A:A").Find("Solutions", , xlValues, xlWhole, , , False).Select

and if found I then copy a range from the active cell which works fine

BUT

If I cannot find the word I need to End Sub

Could an expert help me out with this one please.

I am sure it is simple but I just cannot figure it

Thanks

this short vba should do this:
dim r as range
set r = Range("A:A").Find("Solutions", , xlValues, xlWhole, , , False)

if r is nothing then exit sub

r.Select

Open in new window


btw, please avoid to "select" a range whenever possible, and just use the range object to do your actions on them.

Sub test()
Dim cCell As Range

Set cCell = Range("A:A").Find("Solutions", , xlValues, xlWhole, , , False)
If Not cCell Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox ("Found " & cCell & " at cell: " & cCell.Address)
Else
    MsgBox ("Did not find any occurence of 'Solutions' in range A:A")
End If


End Sub

Open in new window
