    Attach a sample workbook (the FAQ describes how to) - it will be easier to see how your data is laid out and what you want to achieve.

    column A is my data
    everything in yellow is my desired outcome
    and the blue is the words that if column A contain them i do not want them to be copied

    I want either a macro or formula that will do this.

    Insert a new row 1 at the top of your data, then you can put this formula in B2:

    =IF(A2="","",IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(ISNUMBER(SEARCH(J$2:J$3,A2)))),"",MAX(B$1:B1)+1))

    Copy this down as far as you like, but at least unto the bottom of your data. Then to get your reduced list you can use this formula (say in D2):

    =IF(ROWS($1:1)>MAX(B:B),"",INDEX(A:A,MATCH(ROWS($1:1),B:B,0)))

    and copy this down until you start to get blanks.

    Hope this helps.
