I have an autofilter running in some code, it looks for specific words to delete

The naming conventions are not remaining consistent, so i need something that filters for anything that contains "Bulk Upload"

Can someone amend/suggest some code?

Thanks


   ActiveSheet.Range("A1:Q1").AutoFilter
   ActiveSheet.Range(Range("A1"), Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).AutoFilter Field:=3, _
        Criteria1:=Array("PCM ASP Bulk Upload", "PCM EU Bulk Upload", "PCM NA Bulk Upload", "PCM LA Bulk Upload", "PCM ME Bulk Upload"), Operator:=xlFilterValues
   ActiveSheet.Range(Range("C2"), Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).SpecialCells(xlVisible).EntireRow.Delete Shift:=xlUp
   ActiveSheet.Range("A1:Q1").AutoFilter
