Hello All,

I need a robust vba ode that does this.
This robust function takes in a string and worksheet as parameters.

For example
myFunc (“Aron”,sheet1)
will delete  all the columns that has  occurrences of Aaron within sheet1 at row 2
 Also criteria for clearing will be that the target string should be part of the entire cell value,
For example -  if a cell has Aaron 3455  then then cell will not be cleared. So xlWhole, not xlPart

Try this...

Function DeleteColumns(val, sheetName)
    With Sheets(sheetName)
        finalColumn = .Cells(2, .Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
        currColumn = 1
        While currColumn <= finalColumn
            If .Cells(2, currColumn).Value = val Then
                .Cells(2, currColumn).EntireColumn.Delete
                finalColumn = finalColumn - 1
            Else
                currColumn = currColumn + 1
            End If
        Wend
    End With
End Function
