    Re: macro for deleting rows

    You can do this with a simple find in VB. First you will need to be sure that the word "Total" doesn't appear in any row that you do not want to delete. Then you need code that is something like:
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    Replace SheetName with the name of your worksheet.

    This deletes rows that have the word Total (not case sensitive) anywhere in any cell, including in the formulas.

    To look at final values only and ignore formulas (ie look at the answers in the cells, not the string in the formula bar), change "xlFormulas" to "xlValues".
    To only look at cells that contain nothing but the word "total", change "xlPart" to "xlWhole".
    To make the search case sensitive, change "MatchCase:=False" to "MatchCase:=True".

    My approach would be to put the code in a general module then create a command button (form control) in the worksheet. Assign the posted macro to the command button. Click the button and the macro fires.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks for the idea. But the reason I would like it have as a macro so just I can press the shortcut key anytime I want and the code will run. Please help.


    Thank you.
