    Filter/Delete Rows

    Hello!

    I have a large data file that is exported from another database that I need to filter and delete rows that don't match certain criteria. This worksheet has between 40,000-80,000 rows and after it's cleaned up sits at around 50% of its previous size. I have tried writing a macro to delete what I don't need, but it does it row by row, I was wondering if I could get help automating this!

    What I'm looking for it to do:

    1. Delete any row that doesn't have "CHECKED IN" or "CHECKED OUT" in Column O
    2. Delete any row where the value in Column AI is less than 69
    3. Delete any row where Column AH doesn't contain "CKOT" or "CKIN"

    Thanks!

    So you do not want a macro does the deletion row by row checking for each condition?

    Re: Filter/Delete Rows

    Going row by row for ~80,000 lines would take hours, I'm looking for an easy way to sort/filter the data by each condition then delete the data that doesn't fit the criteria, then move onto the next condition. I'm just having trouble with setting up the macro to do this.

    @gjcase
    Is there a way to do the exact opposite and filter in a way to only show the items that match all my criteria and delete all hidden rows?

    This will filter for all cells in range A1:B8 which do not contain the word "checked" in the first column of the range:

    Did you not try the code i posted? It performs all the deletions you require as per the conditions.

    Re: Filter/Delete Rows

    The code you posted filters based on the first criteria, deletes the items that don't meet that and doesn't check the rest of the criteria because it doesnt unfilter the other data. It also takes longer for your code to run versus the one I posted above.
