I'm trying to write a Macro that will search out the rightwards arrow character in Excel and remove it, but I can't figure out how to represent that character in VB Editor. How can I represent it?

The arrows are unicode.  A large solid right arrow is unicode 25B6, while a small one is 25B8.

To refer to the arrow, use ChrW(25B6) etc.

Find out exactly which arrow you have by going here.
http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/25b8/index.htm
or here
http://unicode.org/cldr/utility/character.jsp?a=25B6

You can use AscW(n) to get the unicode of a character, where n is some character.

Good luck,
