    In which column does the word reside?

    I checked your file and found the word Inventories in column K. However, if you delete every row that contains that word in column K, you wont be left with any data.

    Re: Need a macro to delete rows with specific word

    Hi Arlu thats a really useful Macro it works great, but is there any way to speed it up? Im using it to read about 1500 rows.

    Im new to VBA but essentially can =lrow (see below) be set to a row number to speed things up?

    For i = lrow To 4 Step -1
