    Removing values from column A that are found in column C.

    Hello,

    I have the following problem, i need to remove values from column A that are present in column C without modifying the order in column B
    To be more explicit below is an example:

    Column A---------Column B-------Column C

    5230400----------81,50----------1660000
    3275500----------78,00----------6245700
    2856300----------47,50----------5230400
    1879800----------62,50----------2497900
    2124300----------99,00----------1879800
    2497900----------65,00
    4826900----------77,50
    2124200----------34,00
    6245700----------61,50
    3324400----------86,00
    1660000----------53,00

    Column A represents 600 materials.
    Column B represents 600 prices. (different for each material)
    Column C represents 107 materials that are present in column A and have to be removed along with their prices in column B.

    Now i want to remove the materials that are in column A and C along with their prices, so i won't damage the order in the file.
    Meaning if i delete a row in A and shift the other materials up or down, and in the same time column B remains unchanged, the remaining materials will have different prices...and that's not good.

    If anyone could help it would be awesome! this is a common problem for me and i lose hours manually removing each material.
    If anyone needs anymore details please ask.

    PS: I'm using Microsoft Excel 2010.

    Thank You a lot for your help!

    Do right click on sheet tab and select view code and paste the below code. Return to excel and do double click on A1 cell which will run the macro.
