    fbool = False
    strActAddress = ""
    cnt = 0
    On Error Resume Next
    Set zRg = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
    cntRow = zRg.Rows.Count
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox _
        (Prompt:="Range select..", Title:="Kutools for Excel", Type:=8)
    fStr = Application.InputBox _
        (Prompt:="Search string?", Title:="Kutools for Excel", Type:=2)
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each yRg In xRg
        If yRg.Row > cntRow Then
            MsgBox "Value not found ", vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel"
            Application.ScreenUpdating = True
            Exit Sub
        End If
        If yRg.Value2 = fStr Then
            Application.ScreenUpdating = True
            fbool = True
            strActAddress = yRg.Address
            MsgBox "Value found in cell " & strActAddress, vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel"
            Exit Sub
            cnt = cnt + 1
        End If
    Next yRg
    If cnt = xRg.Count Then
