What i'm trying to do is run through a bunch of rows and for each instance of the word "Mike", I want to delete that row. Problem is, I can't figure out which row i'm on. I know i'm only missing a line or two and some assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Sub testing()

For Each i In Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A1:A10").Cells
If i.Value = "Mike" Then
' WHAT ROW AM I ON?????
' HOW DO I PASS IT SO I CAN DELETE IT?
ActiveCell.EntireRow.Delete
End If
Next


End Sub

i did nt have an editor ... hope my syntax is right

dim x as integer=1  '<-- i think excel still uses 1 based indexing
dim MAX_SEARCH_ITEMS as integer=1000
While x<MAX_SEARCH_ITEMS
  if worksheets("sheet1").range("A" & x).value ="MIKE" then
       activecell.entirerow.delete
  else
       x+=1
  endif
Wend


hope this helps
