Property Value

SearchDialog object containing the seach dialog


The search has these qualifications:

  • This method only searches the cells in the data area, not the headers.
  • This method only checks against the formatted string -- the Text in the cell, not the Value.
  • This method only searches the specified cells in one sheet.
  • All the cells that contain data that can be represented as a string by the Text property of that cell are searched and that includes hidden and locked cells.
  • Cell notes and cell tags are not part of the search.

This property is available at run time only.


This example sets up the search dialog.
