Need a VBA macro to search a field and if value found copy the whole row into another worksheet.

I have a worksheet “Sheet1”with one of the colums “EID”. I want to search for a value in this column and if found want to copy and paste the whole row in another worksheet “Sheet2” in a particular line.  Say in line 4, over writing the data if any in line 4 .

I need a macro please.

Here is the required macro to search a field and if value found copy the whole row into another worksheet.

Sub Search_Field_Update_Another_Sheet()
'Variable declaration
Dim lstRow_Sht1 As Integer, lstRow_Sht2 As Integer, iCnt As Integer, jCnt As Integer
Dim Sht1 As Worksheet, Sht2 As Worksheet
Dim srchField As String
Set Sht1 = Sheets("Sheet1")
Set Sht2 = Sheets("Sheet2")
'Find last row in sheet1
lstRow_Sht1 = Sht1.Cells(Sht1.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
'Find last row in sheet2
lstRow_Sht2 = Sht2.Cells(Sht2.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
'Enter search field
srchField = InputBox("Enter Search Field", "Find Field")
'Loop through all rows in sheet1
For iCnt = 2 To lstRow_Sht1
'lets assume EID is available in column A in Sheet1
If Sht1.Range("A" & iCnt) = CInt(srchField) Then
For jCnt = 1 To lstRow_Sht2
'lets assume EID is available in column A in Sheet2
If Sht2.Range("A" & jCnt) = srchField Then
'If field is available then update existing data
Sht1.Rows(iCnt).Copy Destination:=Sht2.Range("A" & jCnt)
Exit Sub
If jCnt = lstRow_Sht2 Then
'If field is not available then add after the last record
Sht1.Rows(iCnt).Copy Destination:=Sht2.Range("A" & jCnt + 1)
Exit Sub
End If
End If
If iCnt = lstRow_Sht1 Then
'If search field is not available in sheet2 then display message
MsgBox "Search Field is not available."
End If
End If
End Sub


Hope, It resolves your problem.
