Hi,

I'm just learning VBA for Excel 2010 and am faced with looking for cells in a table which have a certain characteristic.  In this case, a percentage format applied.  Haven't seen an obvious way so far to search for this type of characteristic.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi,

pls try

Sub Macro()
Set myRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
Application.FindFormat.NumberFormat = "0.00%"

Set Result = myRange.Find(what:="", searchformat:=True)
    If Not Result Is Nothing Then
        strFirstAddress = Result.Address
        Do
            lCount = lCount + 1
            Set Result = myRange.Find(what:="", after:=Result, searchformat:=True)
        Loop While Not Result Is Nothing And Result.Address <> strFirstAddress
        MsgBox lCount & " Found", vbInformation
    Else
        MsgBox "None Found", vbExclamation
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window
