Explanation of VB Code in Excel spreadsheet

Experts,

I had this code in an Excel spreadsheet to delete rows that had values < 0.  I want to use this logic again, but I am not sure  what this statement means.

It is  Cells(i + 3, j * 3 + 1)  that I need an explanation of

            If Cells(i + 3, j * 3 + 1) <> 0 And Len(Cells(i + 3, j * 3 + 1)) > 0 Then GoTo notDelete

This uses the Cells function to identify the cell reference, it uses the following syntax:

Cells(Row,Column) where Row and Column are integers representing row and column numbers.

Your code has the Row and Column numbers set by variables i and j, these will have been set to a value earlier in the code.

Thanks

The Cells() function is Cells(Row number, Column number)

i + 3 is a variable named "i" incremented by 3 and it is the row number
j * 3 + 1 is another variable named "j" multiplied by 3 before adding 1 and used as the column number
