# Delete Row if Sum equals 0 (VB Code)

I am looking for a code that sums 5 cells that are in a single row.  If those 5 cells together equal 0, then delte the row and then loop to the next row.  Continue looping til end of spreadsheet.

VB Code:
1.  Sum AH2+AQ2+AZ2+BI2+BR2.  If the sum is 0, then delete row.  Loop through entire sheet until no more rows.
2.  Then End Sub

Is that for Excel? What are the columns for cells?

If for the specific columns you mentioned then use the following:

``````Sub deleteMyRows()
Dim lastRow As Long
Dim n
lastRow = Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
For n = lastRow To 1 Step -1
If Application.WorksheetFunction.Sum(Cells(n, 34), Cells(n, 43), Cells(n, 52), Cells(n, 61), Cells(n, 70)) = 0 Then Cells(n, 1).EntireRow.Delete
Next
End Sub
``````

Add the formula in a column to the right of the data:

=AH2+AQ2+AZ2+BI2+BR2

Thena pply a filter to the data and select the dropdown for the new column and select the zero value in the list of values.

Highlight and delete the rows.

Alternatively use the filter custom option to show only those that don't equal zero.

If you are likely to have text entries or error values in those columns then simply throw in an "on error resume next" line.

Should ahve added that the formula then needs copying/dragging down to other rows.

If the new formula is in a column next to the last column of complete data, ie no rows with gaps, double click the bottom right corner of the cell and it will fill down for all data.

Exactly what I wanted it to do.  Thank you for such a quick response!

Just as a final note, I wanted to see how far I could take your question. The code below, pasted into a module will all you to:
select which columns you want to sum by the column letter
allow any number of columns to be selected
e.g. when prompted you could enter, from your original question:
AH,AQ,AZ,BI,BR
and it would then loop through, as before and delete those which sum to zero.
Equally you could run it for just
AH,AQ,AZ
Or any other length list.
Enjoy.

Private myString As String
Private mySplit As Variant
