How do I check AD2 for this value?  I cannot first use a select AD2, need it in an IF
I need to Exit a sub if this is true...  if not continue on.

If AD2 = "Dup Already Converted" Then 'This is the first cell cannot be = "Dup Already Converted"
MsgBox ("Yupper it is equal to Dup Already Converted")

Else
MsgBox ("Nope it is not equal to Dup Already Converted")

End If

Either this (not sure which you want)

If AD2 = "Dup Already Converted" Then 'This is the first cell cannot be = "Dup Already Converted"
MsgBox ("Yupper it is equal to Dup Already Converted")
Exit Sub
Else
MsgBox ("Nope it is not equal to Dup Already Converted")

End If

Open in new window


or this

If AD2 = "Dup Already Converted" Then 'This is the first cell cannot be = "Dup Already Converted"
MsgBox ("Yupper it is equal to Dup Already Converted")

Else
MsgBox ("Nope it is not equal to Dup Already Converted")
Exit Sub
End If

Open in new window

The issue is that it is equal to that and the If is not catching it....  It skips over and straight to End If ?? and I am not sure why?  Thought it is in the way I am writing it.
