Filter and delete

Posted on 2016-11-16

Can an expert provide me with VBA code that will filter then delete the data in that range but only that range.

So the range is A-N. I need to filter Column ‘I’ with Credit and then delete anything that now appears in that filter then unfilter.

There is a pivot table in cells R-S and I do not want to delete this.

I am using below code on other sheets where there is no pivot and this works fine but it deletes entire row.

Thank you in advance

Hi,

pls try

Sub Macro1()
'
' Macro1 Macro
'
   Set c = Range("I" & Rows.Count)
   For lCol = 1 To WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("I:I"), "Credit")
        Set c = Range("I:I").Find(What:="Credit", LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
            MatchCase:=False)
            Range("A" & c.Row).Resize(, 14).Delete Shift:=xlShiftUp
   Next lCol
 
End Sub

Open in new window

I don't understand it is giving me error "You cannot move a part of a pivot table and yet you are only looking upto 14 and the pivot is in 18 and 19. Any ideas?


 Range("A" & c.Row).Resize(, 14).Delete Shift:=xlShiftUp

what I notice is if I right click my mouse on the range it does not show 'Delete' which would allow me to Shift cells UP/Down/Right/Left it only give me the option to Delete Row ???

reading up on this on Google looks like it's not possible it says you can only delete entire row when in filter mode. So now I have the problem I only want to delete from A-n where Credit is in column 'I'

What is the way around this?

Sorry Rgonzo, soon I will be gone

Rgonzo, I think it is time for me to retire. Of course it was me, I just needed to remove the filter.
