the .find method signature has more then one parameter (all optional). 
Look at this url for some example: http://www.rondebruin.nl/find.htm


A snippet:

 With Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A:A")
            Set Rng = .Find(What:=FindString, _
                            After:=.Cells(1), _
                            LookIn:=xlValues, _
                            LookAt:=xlWhole, _
                            SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
                            SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, _
                            MatchCase:=False)
