Hi

Select your range and use this macro

Sub BoldFilter()
Dim c As Range
For Each c In Selection
    If c.Font.Bold = False Then
        c.EntireRow.Hidden = True
    End If
Next c
End Sub

Open in new window

Hi,
Thank you for the quick response. Is there a way I can put into your code the column and the starting row so my user doesn't have to select anything? I just want them to be able to run the macro and have it do all that automatically.

Hi

Here it is

Sub BoldFilter()
Dim c As Range
For Each c In Range(Range("L" & 2), Range("L" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    If c.Font.Bold = False Then
        c.EntireRow.Hidden = True
    End If
Next c
End Sub

Open in new window
