    Pop up Message

    I have text "variance in Col A and values in Col D on several sheets. Where the value in Col D in the same row as the text "variance" is not equal to zero, then I want a message to advise where row number and sheet the variance is on

    I have written code to do this, but it tell me that there are variabnce in Col D when in fact they are zero

    Your assistance in resolving this is most appreciated

    Sub Variance_Message()

    HTML Code:
    Dim ws As Worksheet, r As Range, msg As String, ff As String
    For Each ws In Sheets
        Set r = ws.Columns("a").Find("Variance")
        If Not r Is Nothing Then
            ff = r.Address
            Do
                If (r.Offset(, 4).Value <> 0) Then
                               msg = msg & ws.Name & r.Address(0, 0)
                End If
                Set r = ws.Columns("a").FindNext(r)
            Loop Until ff = r.Address
        End If
    Next
    MsgBox IIf(Len(msg) > 0, msg, "No Variances Found")
    End Sub

    Howard,

    Try this minor change:
    r.Offset(, 4).Value
    to
    Round(r.Offset(, 4).Value,0)

    Of course if your variance values have decimal places you'll have to adjust the 0 to what ever number of decimal places are significant, e.g. if your significant values are like .001, .103, etc then change the 0 to 3, etc.

    Howard,

    Try changing the offset to 3 to get the column D. An offset of 4 will put you in column E

    Code:
    Dim ws As Worksheet, r As Range, msg As String, ff As String
    For Each ws In Sheets
        Set r = ws.Columns("a").Find("Variance")
        If Not r Is Nothing Then
            ff = r.Address
            Do
                If r.Offset(, 3).Value <> 0 Then
                      msg = msg & ws.Name & r.Address(0, 0) & ", "
                End If
                Set r = ws.Columns("a").FindNext(r)
            Loop Until ff = r.Address
        End If
    Next
    MsgBox IIf(Len(msg) > 0, msg, "No Variances Found")

    Hi Retired Geek & Maudibe

    Thanks for the help. The offset must be , 3.

    I have incorporated the round functon as suggested by Retired Geek

    Hi Howard

    As per RG's note, don't forget to set round to 2 if you are working in dollars and cents.
    (Good job you're not working in pounds, shillings and pence)
