I have this piece of code
Sub deletenumber()

StartRow = 2
LastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
With Application
    CurrentCalculate = .Calculation
  CurrentEnableEvents = .EnableEvents
  .ScreenUpdating = False
  .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
  .EnableEvents = False
End With
For X = LastRow To StartRow Step -1
  If Cells(X, "A").Value Like "*#*" Then Cells(X, "A").EntireRow.Delete
Next
With Application
    .Calculation = CurrentCalculate
  .EnableEvents = CurrentEnableEvents
End With

End Sub
Which is removing certain characters specified in the code from a specific sheet also specified in the code and I need the following changes:
1.      It should work across all sheets, no matter how they are named.  Except sheet numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4. as with this code,
Sub removeduplicates()

Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In Worksheets
    Select Case ws.Name
        Case "Sheet2", "Sheet3" 'names of sheets to which code need not be applied
            ' do nothing
        Case Else
            ws.Activate
            ws.Columns("A:A").Select
            Call MyRemoveSpaces
            ws.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).removeduplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlNo
            Call deletenumber
            Call deletewith
    End Select
Next ws

End Sub
2.      It should use a dictionary in sheet4, where we can add multiple characters or strings that should be eliminated.  As with this code,
Sub findData()

Dim f As Range, fa As String, i As Long, r As Range, ws As Worksheet
Dim src As Worksheet, dst As Worksheet

Set src = Sheets("sheet2") 'sheet to be searched, change as required
Set dst = Sheets("Mysheetname") 'sheet for output, change as required
i = 1

For Each r In Sheets("Sheet3").Range("A1", Sheets("Sheet3").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    With dst
        Set f = src.Cells.Find(What:=r.Value, after:=src.Cells(1), LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
                               LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
                               MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
        If Not f Is Nothing Then
            Set ws = Sheets.Add(after:=Sheets(Sheets.Count))
            ws.Name = r
            fa = f.Address
            Do
                If Len(f.Value) < 80 Then
                    ws.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)(2) = f.Value
                    i = i + 1
                End If
                Set f = src.Cells.FindNext(f)
            Loop Until fa = f.Address
        End If
        fa = ""
    End With
Next r

End Sub
We use all of these three pieces of code in one loop as following,
1.      we searched the data based on a dictionary in sheet3 and each output goes to a separate sheet and gets named based on the dictionary (this code works perfectly)
2.      we remove the duplicates from all output sheets (this code works perfectly)
3.      we eliminate multiple characters and specific text from all output sheets (this is what we need to change)
I'm wondering if someone can help me structure these codes better, perhaps put them all in one…
