    Remove rows containing a number

    Hi,

    I need some help with something that I think can only be solved with VBA. I have some data which can be of varying sizes in 3 columns. I need to look through the data and delete all rows where neither of the 3 columns contain just numbers. The blank rows rows would need to be removed as well. I've attached an Excel sheet with an example. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    It doesn't require VBA, but a simple =IF function can identify which rows to delete. Then you can simply filter and delete those rows.

    Hi, james19,

    without any macro you could use the WorksheetFunctions Count and CountBlank in two helper columns, use Autofilter, delete the lines which meet the criteria (maybe restrict to the visible cells depending on the verison of Excel being used like XL9 and XL8, from 2002/XP deletion should work for only visible cells), Unfilter.

    Code may look like this (will not detect Numbers which are displayed as Text):
