Experts,

If i = 420    and    j =1
Can you tell me what this command says:

 If Cells(i + 2, j * 2 + 1) <> 0 And Len(Cells(i + 2, j * 2 + 1)) > 0 Then GoTo notDelete

It says "If the cell in row 422 and column 3 (because J is 1 and 1 x 2 plus 1 is 3)  is not zero and the length is greater than 0 the go to notDelete". BTW goto used like that is IMO poor programming.

No points, just restating:

If C422 is not equal to zero, AND if the number of characters in C422 is more than zero, then goto "notDelete."

I agree with Martin that the use of GoTo should be avoided.  Perhaps the logic can be changed in this test so that the lines between this test and "notDelete" are executed instead.
