Can an expert help me out with this please.

This is a CSV file with the data in Column A. When I find Grp1 I want to move that row to column B

Grp1       5860.0000           0.00           0.00       0.00                         0.00         666.90

So if
is in A3

and Grp1       5860.0000           0.00           0.00       0.00                         0.00         666.90
is in A4 , move
Grp1       5860.0000           0.00           0.00       0.00                         0.00         666.90

You can use this vba to do it.

Sub FormatCSVReportv1()
Dim I As Long, LastRW As Long

LastRW = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
For I = 1 To LastRW
    If Cells(I, 1) Like "*Grp1*" Then
        Cells(I - 1, 2) = Cells(I, 1)
    End If

For I = LastRW To 1 Step -1
    If Cells(I, 1) Like "*Grp1*" Then
        Cells(I, 1).EntireRow.Delete Shift = UP
    End If
End Sub
