How do you stop loop in VBA?

In the following example you’ll discover how easy it is to exit the vba loop.

For the “For” loop just tell the code, to “Exit For”.

and for the “Do” Loop just tell the code to “Exit Do”.

Sub ExitForLoop()
    
    Dim intCount As Integer
    
    For intCount = 1 To 100
        
        Debug.Print intCount
        
        If intCount = 50 Then
            MsgBox "50 has been reached.  Now exiting...", , "Exit For"
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    
End Sub

Sub ExitDoLoop()
    
    Dim intCount As Integer
    
    Do Until intCount = 100
        
        Debug.Print intCount
        
        If intCount = 50 Then
            MsgBox "50 has been reached.  Now exiting...", , "Exit Do"
            Exit Do
        End If
        
        intCount = intCount + 1
    Loop
    
End Sub

In some instances “Exit For” or “Exit Do” doesn’t work. In these cases try using the keyword “End” (check out this sample) or add a “Go To (something)” label, then exit the sub there.
