Hi Experts

I am in need of some help with a VBA script please.  I have a single workbook with a tab labeled "final".  

First thing I need to do is in Column "D" find two different values 123 and 456.  There will be no dupes and these are unique to that
column.  Find each of the values and change whatever value is in Column F (of the same row as the column D value) to 30-03-01.

Second thing on this same tab.  In column D find "BB1224" and whatever value is in column I of the same row subtract 30.  

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Andy

You may try something like this.....
Const val1 As Integer = 123
Const val2 As Integer = 456
Const val3 As String = "BB1224"

Sub FindAndReplaceValues()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim rng1 As Range, rng2 As Range, rng3 As Range

Set ws = Sheets("final")

Set rng1 = ws.Range("D:D").Find(what:=val1, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not rng1 Is Nothing Then
    ws.Cells(rng1.Row, "F") = "30-03-01"
End If
Set rng2 = ws.Range("D:D").Find(what:=val2, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not rng2 Is Nothing Then
    ws.Cells(rng2.Row, "F") = "30-03-01"
End If
Set rng3 = ws.Range("D:D").Find(what:=val3, LookIn:=xlValues, lookat:=xlWhole)
If Not rng2 Is Nothing Then
    ws.Cells(rng3.Row, "I") = ws.Cells(rng3.Row, "I") - 30
End If
End Sub
