Hi Experts,

I am trying to select rows where country_code = US and dl_state is blank then move them to a new worksheet (cut and paste).  

Attached is dummy data.  I have the below code that works to delete the rows when dl_state is populate with something but nothing works for blank(its blank no null).  

Dim startrow As Long

startrow = 1

Cells(startrow, 1).Select

Do While ActiveCell.Value <> ""
    If Cells(startrow, 23).Value = "US" And Cells(startrow, 25).Value = " " Then
        rows(startrow).Delete (xlUp)
        'Don't Modify Start Row here because the rows just moved up
        startrow = startrow + 1
    End If

I am open to any suggestions to get this to work.  Thanks.

Cells(startrow, 25).Value = " " 

Open in new window

you are not testing if it is blank but whether there is a space

pls try

Cells(startrow, 25).Value = ""

Open in new window

you could use filtering to select therows you want to cut

Sub Macro2()

    Set myRange = Range(Range("A1"), Range("Z" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    myRange.AutoFilter Field:=23, Criteria1:="US"
    myRange.AutoFilter Field:=25, Criteria1:="="
    myRange.Offset(1).Resize(myRange.Rows.Count - 1).SpecialCells(xlVisible).Cut
    Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

Open in new window

Instead of Auto Filter, you could use the Advanced Filter function using the Copy to another location option.

Couple of quirks with Advanced Filter
1) If the destination for the filtered data is another sheet, before running the Advanced Filter Wizard, select a blank area on the destination sheet.
2) Copying to another location will overwrite formulas with values, this also applies to Auto Filter.
3) Copying to another location will overwrite results of previous filter results if present but only to the extent required for the new filter. If the new filter gives a smaller result set than previous filter, there may still be results from previous filter at bottome of list.

If you want more advice on Advanced FIlter, let us know. Running an Advanced Filter can be automated into VBA if so required.
