Use a variable to find and name another.

I have a variable named SurfCH_Value
What I need to do is in column M, find the cell that has its value in it.  Then when that is found, (will be there everytime) I need to assign another variable to the value of the cell that is offset 4 cells from that to the right.  Naming that variable CH_FixedValueForSurf

I need to use this name later in the procedure...  new to the naming of items within VBA to use later..  opening up a lot more understanding of how to use and write subs.

Try this:
Sub Demo()

    Dim SurfCH_Value
    Dim CH_FixedValueForSurf

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim c As Range
    ' Here you asign the value to the "SurfCH_Value" variable
    SurfCH_Value = "TEST_VALUE"
    Set rng = Range("M1:M" & Range("M1").End(xlDown).Row)

    For Each c In rng
        If c.Value = SurfCH_Value Then
            ' Here you asign the value to the "CH_FixedValueForSurf" variable
            CH_FixedValueForSurf = c.Offset(0, 4).Value
            Exit For
        End If

End Sub

Hey thanks!!
One more quick thing, how would I at the end concatenate SurfCH_Value with CH_FixedValueForSurf and give that a variable name?

No points...

in VBA:
New_Variable_Name = SurfCH_Value & CH_FixedValueForSurf
