a different kind of find

I hope there is an expert out there than can provide me with VBA for this.

I need to :

[Look in sheet named Blotter] for the Ref that is in Col 'V' in the Sheet Named TRYCA1 if found, in the same row find the word TICL then step one cell to the right and copy the data from that cell and put that in column 'W' in sheet TRYCA1.
if nothing is found leave cell blank.

so in sheet named Blotter in cell V2 is GSB150139610

try to find GSB150139610 in Sheet named TRYCA1

if found, on the same row find TICL

if found move one cell to the right and copy that cell contents to Sheet Blotter and put result in W2 if no data found leave blank.

Continue to look for all items in column V in Blotter.

Assuming that the GSB figure is going to be in either column L or M, then

=IFERROR(OFFSET('TRYCA1 '!$A$1,IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!L:L,0),MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!M:M,0))-1,MATCH("TICL",INDIRECT("'TRYCA1 '!" & IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!L:L,0),MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!M:M,0))&":"&IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!L:L,0),MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!M:M,0))),0)),"")

Hi Phillip

Thanks for that but looking at different files it appears they can be in any cell from J to P :-(

Then I would like a helper column.

In cell X2 enter:

=IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!J:J,0),IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!K:K,0),IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!L:L,0),IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!M:M,0),IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!N:N,0),IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!O:O,0),IFERROR(MATCH(V2,'TRYCA1 '!P:P,0),-1)))))))

Open in new window


and cell W2 becomes:

=IFERROR(OFFSET('TRYCA1 '!$A$1,X2-1,MATCH("TICL",INDIRECT("'TRYCA1 '!" & X2&":"&X2),0)),"")
