Hi Experts,

I'm trying to figure out how to make a call using VBA to access the "Find and Replace" menu:

 Screen shot of Find and Replace
I want to place the results (all fields) of the FindAll into an array for further processing.

thanks in advance,
Mark

Hi,

pls try ( fo r values, addresses or ranges)

Sub Macro()
Dim Sub Macro()
Dim aValues()
Dim aAddresses()
Dim aRanges()
    Set c = Cells.Find("MP", LookIn:=xlValues, Lookat:=xlPart)
    If Not c Is Nothing Then
        firstAddress = c.Address
        Idx = 0
        Do
        ReDim Preserve aValues(Idx)
        ReDim Preserve aAddresses(Idx)
        ReDim Preserve aRanges(Idx)
        aValues(Idx) = c.Value
        aAddresses(Idx) = c.Address
        Set aRanges(Idx) = c
        Set c = Cells.FindNext(c)
        Idx = Idx + 1
        Loop While Not c Is Nothing And c.Address <> firstAddress
    End If

End Sub
