    Delete Row if Contains Blank Cell

    Hello

    Please see attachment for example data.

    I have a code that searches in column B and if the cell contains either the words "Employee" or "Overall Total:", then it deletes the entire row.

    How can I edit the code so that it also deletes the row if the cell in B is blank?

    I have tried editing this line

    but it deletes every row on the sheet.

    Thank you in advance.

    For one, your loop stops if the employee name is blank.... I wonder if you are trying to delete the row if there is a blank employee name BEFORE the last row?

    If so, try this:

    You can use filter but you got be careful with the name of a table.

    Thank you for this, but it doesn't delete the blank cells.

    It's coming up with error message : Can't move cells in a filtered range or table.

    I've removed/cleared all filters and yet still won't work.

    I run the code and did not get an error. Could you attach the sample with the error?

    Re: Delete Row if Contains Blank Cell

    Figured it out guys! It's because I had hidden columns that must have had a filter on. Once I unhid and removed filter, it worked.

    Thank you both!
