# Delete Excel Entire rows on conditions

Been a WHILE since I worked in Macros

I have a table with varying numbers of rows
Can change from day to day when I copy in the data itself

Lets say this is an example

I need to cycle through all rows
Check COlumn B and Column C

If Row x Column B contains the text "Column"
or
If Row x Column C Integer value > 0

Delete the entire row

Focus on Ro1 1 column 1 on finish

on error resume next
for introw = 9999 to 1 step -1
if cells(introw,2) like "*Column*" and cells(introw,3)>0 and int(cells(introw,3))=cells(introw,3) then
rows(introw).delete
end if
next
cells(1,1).select
0

Have you looked at Autofilter?

Select your data and go to the Data menu and click Filter. This will add dropdowns to each column.

You can then specify the criteria for each column. Once all criteria are set and the visible rows show what you want to delete, select the whole block of data and delete rows as you would normally, only those visible rows will be deleted. Disable filter and the remaining rows will re-appear.

Each column criteria will be dealt with as an AND comparison. If you need OR comparisons, you will need to add a formula to each row to identify when criteria are met and then filter on that column instead.

Phillip...Thanks

Final Live solution

Dim iii As Integer
iii = Range("A3").End(xlDown).Row

On Error Resume Next
For introw = iii To 3 Step -1
If Cells(introw, 7) Like "*Cover*" Or Cells(introw, 11).Value > 0 Then
Rows(introw).Delete
End If
Next

Cells(1, 1).Select
0

OK - bear in mind that that will not test whether column K is an integer or not.

Did you try the Filter option?

I know

Rob...

This had to be run in a Macro

The data has to be removed automatically

Phillip
They are responsible for making sire the data is clean
Solution works perfectly

A filter routine can be incorporated into a VBA routine.

Rob...
Ok...My point is that this information will be copied and pasted elsewhere.

Don't the "hidden" rows go along with that?

Also...
In VBA...an example in your post would have had me look at that first

Director, Practice Manager and Computing ConsultantCommented:
If rows are filtered, and copied and pasted, the rows which are hidden will not be pasted.

Finance AnalystCommented:
Until now, you have wanted the rows deleted. The requirement to copy elsewhere changes things somewhat.

sr. DeveloperAuthor Commented:
My question clearly stated "Deleted"...not "Hidden"

Finance AnalystCommented:
Yes it does, so are you wanting to copy what is left after the rows have been deleted?

sr. DeveloperAuthor Commented:
Rob,
I wasn't looking to do anything other than what I placed in the question.

Delete the rows.
Delete means...well...delete.

It doesn't hide...
It deletes

Finance AnalystCommented:
OK, I was just looking at the "bigger picture" and the end result rather than just this step in the process.

If you are wanting the remaining data extracted elsewhere, you might also be able to use the Advanced Filter option, which can also be included in VBA if so required and can copy the results of the filter to another sheet.

Thanks

I'll keep that in mind for my next question when it happens.
