I have a Worksheet containing the format similar to the following ,

Worksheet : "Master"
Product       Description
0001             Item A
0002             Item B

Is there any example to show that when a user input a product code, it will return a description of the product ? I need a VBA code solution, not a lookup function on Excel.

Great Tks

Why not using the VLookup function in VBA?

e.g. Application.Worksheetfunction.VLookup("0001",range("A:B"),2,false)

Open in new window

It builds on what you already know in Excel.

Several ways to do that.

I created a workbook that contains 2 sheet.
Master has in A product codes and in B their respective descriptions

Sheet2 has a combobox that is populated via it's fill list property with the named range that I created for all the product codes I called that name range Product. Simply go to sheet Master and on the left of the address bar you have a box click on the arrow and you will see Product select it and it will highlight the extend of that range.

Now back to sheet2 you can select an item from the dropdown and you will have the description in B2 or type in something in the combobox and see what it gives you. put something that is not a code like Joe or anything and you will also get a result.

Is that what you want ?
