Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding values in cells, part of Up and Running with VBA in Excel.

The first thing I do is display an Input Box that asks the user for the…value they want to find.…Next, I use an On Error statement to tell the program that in case there is…an error, then it should go to the line with the label Handler, and that is down here.…So if the user types in a value that does not occur within the worksheet, we…come down here to Handler and display a Message Box called Value not found.…So that's the error handling, but the next line is how we find the value…
