Here is a very simple example:

Cell D1 contains a Data Validation list of letters A to Z
Range C1 to C200 is your customer list

Use FORMS toolbox to put button on sheet and Assign Macro "FindAlpha" (code
below to be placed in a general module ... familar with Visual Basic Editor

Select letter in D1 and click button

If match is found it scrolls to first entry

If no match found, it doesn't scroll (you could add a message here if


Sub FindAlpha()
Row = Application.Match(Range("D1"), Range("C1:C200"), 0)
If IsError(Row) Then Row = 1
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow = Row
End Sub
