Excel/Excel Macro


I have written the following code to display the packaging standard of each part number as soon as part number is entered in cell C1.For part numbers which have multiple vendors it should ask vendor code which are stored in column D.Part numbers are stored in Column A and hyperlinked path is done in Column B.Now if part number is not present I want it to display "Item number not found".But insted it is showing a Run Time Error 91. Object Variable or With Block Variable not set and showing debug in line "If Application.CountIf(.Range("A:A"), myR.Value) > 1 Then"..
Please Help.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
  If Target.Address = "$C$1" Then macro  '<=============easier
End Sub

Sub macro()
  Dim myR As Range, Vendor As String
  With Worksheets("Sheet1")
      Set myR = .Range("A:A").Find( _
        What:=.Range("C1").Value, LookIn:=xlFormulas)
      If Application.CountIf(.Range("A:A"), myR.Value) > 1 Then
        Vendor = InputBox("There is more than one - please enter the Vendor Code")
        If Vendor = "" Then Exit Sub
        On Error Resume Next
        n = 0
        n = Application.Match(Vendor, .Range("D:D"), 0)
        If n = 0 Then
        MsgBox "Vendor Not Found"
        Exit Sub
        End If
        Set myR = .Cells(n, 1)
      End If
  End With
  If Not myR Is Nothing Then
      ThisWorkbook.FollowHyperlink myR.Offset(, 1).Value
      MsgBox "Item Number Not Found. Please check The Number You have Entered"
  End If
End Sub

You need to check if Not myR is Nothing right after the Set myR = ...
If it IS nothing then it errors when you're asking how many there are.

You can also suppress errors by On Error Resume Next, and test to see if it found an error by testing If Err.Number <> 0 Then 'some error just occurred. You can also reset that by Err.Clear
