I am trying to write a macro where i use the Find method in order to locate cells with a certain character (,) and then end the find when the spreadsheet ends, however, the find tool will continue to activate the same cells over and over again if you keep asking it to do a find, I would like it so that when i enter the find method in a loop, it stops its search at when it hits a cell with the word "total" in it. thank you very much

RE: help with ctrl+F (find) tool

First off, you're in the wrong forum to be posting Excel questions.

Secondly, before anyone answers, you'll need to post your code to see what you have done (if anything) so far.  Your delima lies in your search routine; variables not clearing., RANGES not being set, etc.

So post your code if you want some advisement or guidence.
