Default Compare columns in two WBks and when match is found...

Eliano and JLG Whiz both kindly contributed to the enclosed macro which
checks the value of each cell in column A of Targetdoc against the values in
Sourcedoc xlValues and when a match is found, it enters a textstring into the
corresponding cell in Column "I".

I originally used today's date as the text string, but since Sourcedoc has a
"Date Created" column, it makes sense to insert this value rather than a
textstring into the Targetdoc when the match is found.

How do check the value of each cell in Column A of Targetdoc against the
values in column A in Sourcedoc...
And when a match is found...
Enter the value of column B (of the found row), of Sourcedoc into...
Column I (of the checkvalue row), of Targetdoc?

Also, how do I amend the ninth line of the Macro so that ActiveSheet.Range
expands as more data is added?

Sub CheckData()
Dim c As Range
Dim findC As Variant

With Application
.ScreenUpdating = False
.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
End With

Windows("Report.xls").Activate '<-- My report
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Range("A2:A90")
If Not c Is Nothing Then
Windows("SourceDoc.xls").Activate '<-- My document to be checked
Set findC = Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells _
.Find(c.Value, LookIn:=xlValues)

If Not findC Is Nothing Then

Windows("Report.xls").Activate
ActiveSheet.Range("I" & c.Row).Cells.Value = "20/02/2008"
End If
End If
Next
With Application
.ScreenUpdating = True
.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
End With
End Sub

Kind Regards

Hi JLG.

Tested, but my xl2003 require a With....End With to work properly.
However many thanks.
