I know how to delete a row in Excel with VBA, but where I am struggling is how to delete rows if a certain condition is met.  For example for any row where Column H (Status) is = to 'Closed' then I wish to delete these rows.  Suggestions ?

You may try this....

Sub DeleteRows()
Dim lr As Long, i As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "H").End(xlUp).Row
For i = lr To 2 Step -1
    If Cells(i, "H") = "Closed" Then
        Rows(i).Delete
    End If
Next i
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window

Apply a filter to the data and Column H filter so only "Closed" is visible.

Select the visible rows or even just one column of visible rows and delete. The rows hidden by the filter will be unaffected.

The chosen answer resolves the issue considering the original requirement was to delete the rows based on a condition through VBA not with manual steps.
