Excell question - Open in Search mode

Go to microsoft's technet site & you'll likely find code examples to do what you want as - you are correct - 'record macro' isn't capable of recording many things (and you have to hand code it).

Subj:[Vantage] Excell question - Open in Search mode

Good Day:

Excell question.
I know that a macro named "Auto_Open" will execute when the
worksheet is opened.
I can record the keystrokes: Tools >> Macro >> Record new Macro.
But, if I "'record" Edit >> Find and then stop the macro, the
Edit find does not open when I open the worksheet.

Anyone know how to open Excell in Find\Search mode?

I created a WS for my Manage-2000 history which I am putting in the
E9 Favorite Menu and would like for it to open in 'Find" mode.

I don't think you can get there that way. You probably need to create your own search form. Then, you can pass the search parameter to the search box and it will do its thing. Here is some air code to get you started:

Dim strInput As String
strInput = InputBox("Search For:", "Search")
Cells.Find(What:=strInput, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
