Deleting rows in a table

Hello Experts,

I am trying to delete information in a table once it has been filtered.
All the visible information that appears in the table after it was filtered has to be deleted (except for the header).

I used the following code:
Sheets("Initiative Summary").ListObjects("InitiativeTbl").listColumns("Functional Area").databodyrange.specialcells(xlCellTypeVisible).Delete

The code works fine unless the first item in the table is invisible. In this case it deletes the entire table including the header.

Could you please help me fix this?

Thanks

Does this have to be with VBA? Otherwise you can do this:
- Select the top left data cell to be deleted
- Hit Shift+Ctrl+Down
- Hit Ctrl+-
- Select entire row

You will then see the unfiltered results minus the rows you've just deleted.

Edit: To quickly get to the top left hit Ctrl+Up,Left (possibly a few times if you have empty cells) or alternatively Ctrl+Home but I typically find my hand over the arrow keys when I'm using Excel.

Angelp1ay, it has to be a macro to automatically perform these operations across multiple worksheets.

Thanks

Something like this ought to do it:

Sub DeleteThem()
    
    Dim lo As ListObject
    Dim rng As Range
    
    Set lo = ActiveSheet.ListObjects(1)
    
    With lo.ListRows
        Set rng = Range(.Item(1).Range.Cells(1), .Item(.Count).Range.Cells(1)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False
        rng.Delete
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    End With
    
    MsgBox "Done"
    
End Sub

Open in new window


Just be aware that if you have more than ~16000 rows, SpecialCells can be unreliable...
