The following code example uses the Find method to find the first cell with the value Seashell in a NamedRange control. The example then uses the FindNext and FindPrevious methods to find the next cell with the value Seashell and then return to the original cell. Finally, the example uses the Cut method to cut the contents of the first cell with the value Seashell and paste it into cell B1.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void FindValue()
    this.Range["A1", missing].Value2 = "Barnacle";
    this.Range["A2", missing].Value2 = "Seashell";
    this.Range["A3", missing].Value2 = "Star Fish";
    this.Range["A4", missing].Value2 = "Seashell";
    this.Range["A5", missing].Value2 = "Clam Shell";

    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange namedRange1 =
        this.Controls.AddNamedRange(this.Range["A1", "A5"],

    // Find the first occurrence of "Seashell".
    Excel.Range Range1 = namedRange1.Find("Seashell", missing, missing,
        Excel.XlLookAt.xlWhole, Excel.XlSearchOrder.xlByColumns,
        false, false, missing);

    // Find the next occurrence of "Seashell".
    Range1 = namedRange1.FindNext(Range1);

    // Return to the first occurrence of "Seashell".
    Range1 = namedRange1.FindPrevious(Range1);

    // Cut the range with the first "Seashell" and copy it to cell B1.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange namedRange2 =
        this.Controls.AddNamedRange(Range1, "namedRange2");
    namedRange2.Cut(this.Range["B1", missing]);
