# How to modify the current macro that finds a pair of data in a column to return with the value in a different column?

On the attached spreadsheet I have a macro that will search for a pair of text listed in cells “G2:G3” and return with True or False.  I need it to find the pair and return with the value in column “A” in the same row that the value in “G2” portion on the pair was found in.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is a user-defined function that will search column C for two successive values and then return a value from column A. You use it with a worksheet formula like:
=Pairs2(G2,G3,C:C,A:A)
``````Function Pairs2(strFirst As String, strSecond As String, rngSearch As Range, rngReturn As Range) As Variant
Dim i As Long, n As Long
Dim v As Variant
Dim rng As Range
Set rng = Intersect(rngSearch, rngSearch.Worksheet.UsedRange)
n = rng.Rows.Count
v = ""
For i = 1 To n
If LCase(rng.Cells(i, 1).Value) = LCase(strFirst) Then
v = rngReturn.EntireColumn.Cells(rng.Cells(i, 1).Row).Value
ElseIf LCase(rng.Cells(i, 1).Value) = LCase(strSecond) Then
If v <> "" Then
Exit For
ElseIf rng.Cells(i, 1).Value <> "" Then
v = ""
End If
End If
Next
Pairs2 = v
End Function
``````
