When using the below vba code, how do I prevent getting an error when the source data does not contain "Name:" or "Computer Name:"?

 
Sub macro()

aLines = Split(Range("A2"), vbLf)
strTmp = Filter(aLines, "Name:")(0)
Range("B5") = Trim(Split(strTmp, ":")(1))
strTmp = Filter(aLines, "Computer Name:")(0)
Range("B6") = Mid(Trim(Split(strTmp, ":")(1)), 4, 4)
strTmp = ""
For Each c In Sheets("Techs").Range(Sheets("Techs").Range("A2"), Sheets("Techs").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    If InStr(1, Range("A2"), c) Then strTmp = c.Value
Next
Range("B7") = strTmp
End Sub
