Hello Experts!

Attached is a sample of the data I'm cleaning up.  I'll need to delete rows whenever the corresponding cells in Columns B:E are empty.  I have highlighted in yellow what satisfies that condition.  

I would very much appreciate your help with code to delete rows where the cells in B:E are empty.

Thank you!

Hello,

here is the code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

i = 1
j = ActiveSheet.Cells(ActiveSheet.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
Do While i < j
If i = 0 Then i = 1

If ActiveSheet.Range("B" & i).Value = "" And ActiveSheet.Range("C" & i).Value = "" And ActiveSheet.Range("D" & i).Value = "" And ActiveSheet.Range("E" & i).Value = "" Then
ActiveSheet.Rows(i).Delete
i = i - 1
j = j - 1
Else
i = i + 1
End If

Loop

End Sub

Open in new window


Attached is the sample file without empty lines.. Just replicate it to your copy of file...
