    How to make my macro delete rows? It currently hides the rows instead of deleting.

    Hey guys. I am new here, but hopefuly i will get some help.

    I currently use this macro below to hide blank rows:

    Now that hides the rows, but I don't need them hidden i need to delete them because then it messes up my numbering on my sheet. It goes like 1 2 4 6 8 120 it depends what rows it deletes. I cant figure out how to do that.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Please put the code tags around your code, I'm sure someone will be glad to help once you do.

    Well, I am posting from my phone so i cant help with that right now. That is a problem with the rest of the macro. I figured that was a portion of the full code. I wont be able to help today but what do you want it to delete? The code you provided doesnt really specify which is why it may not be providing you the right results.

    Re: I need my macro to delete rows not hide. Cant figure it out.

    For example I select Column B3 and I want it to delete all of the rows in it that do not have a number in them.

    Thanks

    Re: How to make my macro delete rows? It currently hides the rows instead of deleting

    You're not explaining the end result you want. Also, don't cross post and not say anything, it causes repeat work.

    FYI, if your macro worked but hide stuff, it will work the EXACT same way but delete the rows instead of hiding them with what I posted. So explain how it is different, and focus on ONE thread. You are wasting peoples time by cross posting.

    http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.php?p=3803169

    Rule 8: Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. You'll find people are disinclined to respond to cross-posts because they may be wasting their time solving a problem that has been solved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser)to the cross-post. Expect cross-posts without a link to be closed a message will be posted by the moderator explaining why. We are here to help so help us help you!

    Hi,

    Would you like me to send you the excel sheet itself so you can try it out and see? That should explain everything to you. Im sorry for posting on multiple forums, I am trying to get this sorted out ASAP.

    Thanks
