It's a windy day on Wimbledon Common, and Wombles don't weigh much.  Whatever you do, don't click on the button in this worksheet ...

If you click on this button, who knows what might happen?

We did say not to click on the button!  Now you need to find all of the Wombles, by searching over the range Range("A1:CV100").  Your algorithm (steps to follow) should be:

  • For each cell in the above range ...
  • ... If the value of the cell is non-blank ...
  • ... write out the value of the cell to the immediate window using Debug.Print

Your final output will look something like this:
