Delete Unwanted Rows Based On Value In Cells?

Sep 28, 2011

I am aware this is probably very simple, but I haven't been able to find a usable macro yet. I would like the data in the workbook that is not "Tuesday" (column L) and is not "3" or "4" (column I) to be deleted. All rows that have "Tuesday" and either "3" or "4" should not be deleted. Each row that is not deleted must have Tuesday in column L. All other cells are blank intentionally. The workbook will remain the same titled WKBK1 (no need to put the output data in a separate workbook nor separate spreadsheet).

Do you know what the macro would be so I don't have to copy and paste a formula over a large number of cells?

Removing/Greying Out Unused/unwanted Columns & Rows

Jun 21, 2006

Need to find out how I can restrict a worksheet to show only the columns and rows that I want. For example, I want to show columns A to H, and rows 1 to 25, and nothing else - I don't want there to be a column G, or a row 26, just blank grey space. I know it's possible, because I've seen it done : D . But the closest I can get to is: View > Page Break Preview, which isn't quite what I'm after.

Reset Vertical Scroll And / Or Delete Unwanted Blank Rows At The Bottom?

Mar 18, 2014

My spreadsheet has 600rows and the vertical scroll bar ends at row 459424. I have attempted to delete all of the extra rows by holding SHIFT and CTRL, striking the down arrow then right-clicking on the left margin of highlighted row numbers and choosing delete.

But the unwanted rows are still there and my vertical scroll bar is not correlated to the 600 rows.

Text File Import Produces Unwanted Blank Lines Between Rows Of Data

Jan 19, 2010

After doing some searching I found a macro here which imports multiple text files into one workbook, keeping each text file as a seperate worksheet, each worksheet named the same as the original file name (minus the .txt extension).

However, it adds a blank line between each line of text. So I get this:

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=232ms TTL=62

Reply from bytes=32 time=62ms TTL=62

Reply from bytes=32 time=65ms TTL=62

instead of this:........

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=232ms TTL=62
Reply from bytes=32 time=62ms TTL=62
Reply from bytes=32 time=65ms TTL=62

This doesn't happen when I use the import wizard, or when I just open the file from the File -> Open menu.

My text files are always the same format (number of lines, etc.), so it's easy to delimit and insert forumlae as needed, but those extra lines are breaking a macro I've previously written to parse the data.

Automatically Add Or Remove Date

Dec 29, 2006

This code below is pasted from Automatically Add Date, Time or Date & Time and uses the Worksheet Change Event

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A2:A100")) Is Nothing Then
With Target(1, 2)
.Value = Date
End With
End If
End Sub

It automatically enters today's date into the corresponding B cell. How do I code it so that the date is automatically removed when & if I delete the corresponding A cell?

Remove Empty Cells Automatically Per Row?

Oct 2, 2013

I'm needing to import a .csv into another software and it needs the fields formatted a specific way.

The spreadsheet I've been given has columns for different departments and an X to denote if they fall under it. As an example.


Joe Bloggs

Bob Smith

John Doe

For the import into this software it needs the fields like this, the name in the cell has to be exactly the same as the column header.

Joe Bloggs

Bob Smith

John Doe

Is there an easy formula to scan the row, if an X is found substitute the X for the column header text and if no X in a cell delete it and shift all cells to the left within the row ?

The substitution is quite easy and I've played around with lookup or if statements to quite easily do that but the bit I'm having trouble sorting is removing any unnecessary cells in that row so only cells with data are listed in the row.

Automatically Remove Cell Colors

Oct 30, 2006

i am using a set of VB codes that was kindly provided by "dr". Please refer to the link below.

Highlight-Select Start Date To End Date

However, I am facing problems on how to delete or unfill the cells that are "coloured and filled with booking reference name" (i.e. being booked by the user).

In another words, currently, once a booking is made, the blank slots would be coloured to red and would reflect the customer name in those slots (with the use of dr's VB codes).

Comes the next day, if that booking needs to be cancelled, would the user be able to "delete" that booking that was made (i.e. uncolour that slot plus remove the customer name) without having to automatically go unfill the cells and delete the text in the cells?

Paste Rows Without Overwriting Other Rows (automatically Shift Other Rows Down)

The number of rows you are pasting and then you can select that same number of existing rows and use "insert". This is what I'm trying to achieve:

Is there really no built-in way to do this?

Remove Many Rows At Once

Apr 4, 2014

I am using the following code to remove an entire row if a specific cell in that row contains "remove":

iLastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row
For i = iLastRow To 1 Step -1
If Left(Cells(i, "D").Value, 4) = "remo" Then
End If
Next i

However, from what I can see, it starts from the bottom and look upward, removing each line as it finds it. The problem is, there could be upward of 500 lines that need to be deleted. This coding looks and removes lines one at a time and can take a while. Is there any way I can get this done faster?

During the previous steps of my macro, I sort the column (Column D) that has the "remove" in it, so all of the "remove"s are adjacent to each other in Column D of my file.
