I have two different workbooks; let's say workbook 1 and workbook2. In both workbooks I have a column with barcodes.
I need a VBA to check the two barcode columns in workbooks and if it find matches to create a new workbook and copy the whole row of workbook 1 and use the same color of cell barcode in workbook 2.
I am assuming that the barcode columns both sheet 1 and sheet 2 are the same
then try this code
at the beginning when you run the code, the code will ask an input about the column letter of the barcode. you can type the column letter e.g. G and click ok (on the top right):
The macro is
Dim col As String, r As Range, c As Range, cfind As Range
Dim x, y As Integer
col = InputBox("type the column LETTER in which the barcode is netered for e.g. G")
On Error Resume Next
Set r = Range(.Cells(2, col), .Cells(2, col).End(xlDown))
For Each c In r
x = c.Value
With Worksheets("sheet1").Columns(col & ":" & col)
Set cfind = .Cells.Find(what:=x, lookat:=xlWhole)
If cfind Is Nothing Then GoTo nnext
y = cfind.Interior.ColorIndex
.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial
.Cells(Rows.Count, col).End(xlUp).Interior.ColorIndex = y
