Hi

I have a document that contains lots of rows, I want to automatically copy all the rows that contain a number in column G, into a new excel spreadsheet.

So I am thinking a macro would work best for this?

Thanks,

Andy

A macro could do this, but you can easily do this manually with these steps:

1) Make a copy of the existing sheet, either by:
    a) [Ctrl]+click-n-drag the sheet tab to the right until you see a black triangle then release.  A duplicate sheet is created.
    b) Right-click on the sheet tab, select "Move or Copy..." from the shortcut menu.  Click the "Create a copy" check box and click the "OK" button.
2) Rename the new sheet as you wish
3) Turn on Data Filters
    a) Select cell A1
    b) Press [Shift]+[Ctrl]+[End] to select all the cells in the range
    c) Menu:  Data - Filter
4) Click the drop filter in column G.  Click the "(Select All)" box to turn off all filters, then scroll down and click the "(Blanks)" check box.  Click the "OK" button.
5) Delete these rows
    a) Select cell A2
    b) Press [Shift]+[Ctrl]+[End] to select all the cells in the range
    c) Right-click anywhere in the selected area and select "Delete Row" from the shortcut menu.  You'll be prompted again; click the "OK" button.
6) Turn off the Filters.

You now have a sheet containing only rows that have a value in column G.

The example file you provided had 9,435 rows with blank values out of 62,085 rows of data.  You can check your steps against this to ensure you have done it correctly.

Regards,
