    Why are there nested loops? The loop only needs to look at one column in each row. The one where the student id is located.
    The other columns in the row contain other data about the student.

    I suggest that the search loop be rewritten to use a single loop.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Try writing a single loop that looks at the one column in each row that contains the student id value.

    NO!

    Norm is right, your loop only needs to look at the first column, unless you want to be able to input something like "meow1" and get that whole row which to be honest is funtionality i like in table filters.

    As for getting all of the information, sounds like all you're missing is to save the row number "i" when you find what you're looking for, then you can access the data in your output. You're practically done!
    Writing code is your job, helping you fix and understand it is mine.

    <-- Be sure to thank and REP (Star icon) those who have helped you. They appreciate it!
