VBA Find (What:="") tied to dropdown list box

Brass Contributor

In the VBA Find(What:=), I want the What:=" " to get it's value from a drop down list box
in sheet1. I have two worksheets, 1) sheet with three dropdown list boxes 2) sheet with unstructured
data where the data from dropdown box wiil be found. These are the VBA codes I have.
Thank you for any help ou can give.

Cells.Find(What:="DALLAS COWBOYS", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:= _
xlFormulas2, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate

Cells.Find(What:="WEEK 3", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas2, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -3).Select

Cells.Find(What:="Cardinals Drives", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:= _
xlFormulas2, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByColumns, SearchDirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
'Range(ActiveCell).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(5, 0).Select
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.End(xlDown).Select

Hello Hans,
I hope you are doing and Thank You so much for all your help.

I'm still working in the same worksheets and workbook.

This is the DROPDOWNLISTBOX again and you figured out the code to search the DRIVE count data from the DRIVEWORKSHEET. We look that data by first looking in cell 'D2' of the 'DROPDOWNLISTBOX' where we have a dropdown list box with weeks 1 thru 22 to choose from. We then go to the "DRIVEWORKSHEET' find the 'Team Name', 'Week Number', 'Drive Name' then count the number of drives for each 'Team Name'. We then copied the 'Drive Count Number' in a range 'L4:AG35' in the 'DROPDOWNLISTBOX' under the week number headers in row 3.

What I want to do now is modify the same formula to find 'Home' or 'Away' Drive count and place those 'Drive Numbers' in the new ranges (Home 'AL4:BG35' and 'Away 'BK4:CF35") in the same 'DROPDOWNLISTBOX'. Here's how I've modified the code: 
I'm getting 'mismatch errors with this part:
awayRange.Cells(r, awayRange.Column + (wk - 1)).Value = countValue


Sub FIND_TEAMNAME_WEEK_DRIVES_HOME_AND_AWAY_ED7_15MAY23()

Dim wt As Worksheet
Dim r As Long
Dim m As Long
Dim tm As String

Dim dr As String
Dim rg As Range
Dim homeRange As Range
Dim awayRange As Range
Dim n As Variant

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Set ws = Worksheets("DRIVEWORKSHEET")
Set wt = Worksheets("DROPDOWNLISTBOX")

' Get Call Week in DROPDOWNLISTBOX cell D2
wk = wt.Range("D2").Value
m = wt.Range("I3").End(xlDown).Row

' Set the HOME and AWAY fill data areas
Set homeRange = wt.Range("AL4:BG35")
Set awayRange = wt.Range("BK4:CF35")
Debug.Print wt.Range("AL4:BG35").Address
Debug.Print wt.Range("BK4:CF35").Address
For r = 4 To m
' Get Team Name from DROPDOWNLISTBOX column I
tm = wt.Range("I" & r).Value
Debug.Print "Team Name: " & tm

' Find Team Name from line above in the DRIVEWORKSHEET
Set rg = ws.Range("B:D").Find(What:=tm, LookAt:=xlPart, MatchCase:=False)

If Not rg Is Nothing Then
' Find the Call Week Number from DROPDOWNLISTBOX cell D2 in DRIVEWORKSHEET
Set rg = rg.Offset(1).EntireRow.Find(What:=wk, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False)

If Not rg Is Nothing Then
' Get the Drive Name from the DROPDOWNLISTBOX column J Find in the DRIVEWORKSHEET
dr = wt.Range("J" & r).Value
Debug.Print "Drive Name: " & dr

' Find Drive Name in the DRIVEWORKSHEET
Set rg = rg.Offset(0, -3)
Set rg = rg.EntireColumn.Find(What:=dr, After:=rg, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False)

If Not rg Is Nothing Then

' Get value of Drives Count from DRIVEWORKSHEET
n = rg.Offset(5).End(xlDown).Value
Debug.Print "Drive Count: " & n

' Convert n to a numeric type before assigning to the cell value
Dim countValue As Double
If IsNumeric(n) Then
countValue = CDbl(n)

If rg.Row = 1 Then

' It is a home data

' Put the count data in the HOME range
homeRange.Cells(r, homeRange.Column + (wk - 1)).Value = countValue
Debug.Print "Putting count in HOME range"
Else

' It is an away data

' Put the count data in the AWAY range
awayRange.Cells(r, awayRange.Column + (wk - 1)).Value = countValue
Debug.Print "Putting count in AWAY range"
End If
Else

' Handle the case where n is not a valid numeric value

'countValue = 0 ' or any default value you prefer
End If
End If
End If
End If
Next r

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

I've dropped the worksheets below for your review. I hope you can, again, straighten me out. Please let me know if there is anything I have left out.

HANS,
I Think this part is what I'm missing and where it need to be modified to determine a 'Home' drive or an 'Away' Drive.
" ' Find Week on DROPDOWNLISTBOX
Set rg = wt.Range("3:3").Find(What:=wk, LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False)
If Not rg Is Nothing Then"

Then use the "1 row down' for home and 25 down for away.
As this finds the copy to in the old code.

If IsNumeric(n) Then
countValue = CDbl(n)

I have no idea what your code tries to do.

The line

 

If IsNumeric(n) Then

 

is useless - n is ALWAYS numeric, as far as I can tell.

And in the line

 

If rg.Row = 1 Then

 

rg.Row will NEVER be 1, for rg is the range containing the drive, i.e. in row 6, 30, etc.

I composed my previous reply while you added a new reply. I haven't read that one yet...

@HansVogelaar 
I'll try to clarify this as best I can and hope I don't confuse you more.
Here is your original code. This code works with two worksheets, 1) DROPDOWNLISTBOX, AND 2) DRIVEWORKSHEET.  The DRIVEWORKSHEET holds the data that I want to find. The

DROPDOWNLISTBOX has a drop-down list box with weeks 1 thru 22 to pick from. The worksheet also holds in column (I) the Team Names and in column (J) the Drive Names of each team. It also has the original range where the Drive Numbers counted would be copied. That range is (L4:Ag35). Above that range are Week Number headers, Week 1 thru Week 22. The code below accomplished that.

I have added a Home (AL4:BG35) and an Away (BK4:CF35) range in the DROPDOWNLISTBOX with the same headers for Week 1 thru Week 22 for both.

What I want to do now is the same thing but I want to sort the drives into Home and Away. And to do that we need to look at the structured layout of the data worksheet DRIVEWORKSHEET. The original code does several lookups, 1) finds the Team Name, 2) xldowns I row to find the Week Number, then offsets 3 columns left to find the Drive Names. The Drive Name for the Team Name being looked up could be in either one row down (Home) or 25 rows down (Away).

And that is where I need your help.  Modify the code so when the Drive Name is found, then determine if it's Home (row 1)or Away (row 25) and populate the drive count number into the proper range.

Hans, kudos to you for another GREAT JOB!

If I only had part of your knowledge. 

Again, thank you so much for your help, not only for myself but all the others you help.
