    Macro to delete rows that do not contain certain text - search multiple words

    Hi!

    I'm new to VBA (working in Excel 2010) and I'm trying to write code that willd delete all rows that do not contain text that matches several words (3 key words in total but 6 different versions since it's case sensitive).

    You did not show your 6 words, but you can add to SearchItems like

    SearchItems= Split("word1,word2,word3,word4,word5, word6",",")

    attention, sintax of SearchItems = Split("tv", "TV") is wrong
