I have the following code that I would like to add critieria too, however I can not get it work based on what I added

Sub aaa()
  Dim ChkSH As Worksheet
  Set ChkSH = Sheets("LM")

    ce = "Local Market"
   
Sheets("Variance").Activate
  For Each ce In Range("a4:a" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row)
    Set findit = ChkSH.Range("a4:a3000").Find(what:=ce, LookIn:=xlValues, _
    LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
    MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)

    If findit Is Nothing Then Range("A" & ce.Row).Copy _
        ChkSH.Range("a65000").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

  Next ce
End Sub

Open in new window


From the Variance worksheet I want to only compare and copy over the rows where Column B text = Local Market.  As it is written I am returning all values in Column B.

Try this:
Sub aaa()
    Dim ChkSH As Worksheet
    Dim r As Row
    Dim ce As String

    Set ChkSH = Sheets("LM")
    ce = "Local Market"

    Sheets("Variance").Activate
    For Each r In Sheets("Variance").Range("a4:a" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row)
        Set findit = ChkSH.Range("a4:a3000").Find(what:=ce, LookIn:=xlValues, _
                                                  LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
                                                  MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)

        If findit Is Nothing Then Range("A" & ce.Row).Copy _
           ChkSH.Range("a65000").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

    Next
End Sub

Sorry my bad.

Sub aaa()

    Dim r As Range
    Dim ce As String

    Set ChkSH = Sheets("LM")
    ce = "Local Market"

    Sheets("Variance").Activate
    For Each r In Sheets("Variance").Range("a4:a" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).Rows
        Set findit = ChkSH.Range("a4:a3000").Find(what:=ce, LookIn:=xlValues, _
                                                  LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
                                                  MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)

        If findit Is Nothing Then Range("A" & r.Row).Copy _
           ChkSH.Range("a65000").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)

This is the quickest most efficient way to do what you want, it uses autofilter.

Sub aaa()
    Sheets("Variance").Range("A4:AC" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).AutoFilter 2, "Local Market"
    Sheets("Variance").Range("A4:AC" & Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row).Copy Sheets("LM").Range("A65000").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
    Sheets("Variance").ListObjects("Var").Range.AutoFilter Field:=2
End Sub

This does workk.  In your opinion, I have to consistanly update the report, it better to copy and repaste the values or do a comparison and add only the new values?
