# Macro To Delete Rows Containing Multiple Criteria?

Feb 23, 2011

how they can be used to delete rows that meet multiple criteria, however all the examples I have found seem to be rather complex and personal to the individuals as opposed to being rather generic. Many people, including myself would find it useful to have a simplified generic answer that can be applied to all kinds of criteria. Such as if the data in column B = x and the data in column C = y delete the row. Here is my example.

SCENARIO EXAMPLE:

In column A - Date e.g. 05/02/2011, 06/02/2011
In column B - Day
In column C - Time (in format 09:06:21)
In column D – Service numbers dialled (70, 110, 224) two to three digits long

MACRO EXAMPLE:

Delete the row if the criteria in:
Column D = 10, 40, 192 or 244
And
Column C is between 09:00:00 and 16:00:00

macro code or at least a link to a thread that they think gives a scenario as simple as this.

## Macro To Delete Rows Based On Multiple Criteria?

Jul 10, 2014

A macro is required to identify rows within a selection e.g. entire column A, that share the same value, then delete appropriate rows depending on the values in another column. The attached example details the requirements.

## Delete Rows With Multiple Criteria

Sep 8, 2009

i have several student ID results that have conditional formatting in place. I'd like to KEEP the following data but delete/hide everything else:

1) Filter out purple rows
2) WITH filtered rows: KEEP any scoreA that's 100% or less than 85%
3) Look at Score A and Score B - KEEP if the difference is greater/less than 5%
4) If a student took testB but didnt take testA, KEEP.

## Delete Rows Multiple Criteria W/Numbers

Dec 23, 2009

I am trying to use the code below to eliminate data in a spreadsheet based on certain criteria. I have been able to get this to work with text fields just fine, but now I am running into an issue with numbers. I am trying to get this code to delete rows if they have the word "unknown" in column C and if the value in column B is greater than 900 hours (999:00:00), the numbers in this column are formatted as [hhh]:mm:ss. What should I tweak to make this work?

## Delete Rows Not Meeting Multiple Criteria

Feb 29, 2008

I have an extremely large CSV file that I am opening via Excel. Can anyone tell me how to delete a row using multiple criteria. For Example, i want to delete the whole row if a certain cell doesnt equal GA SC or NC. I have seen how it can be done using one criteria but not multiple ones.

## Delete Rows Where 2 Columns Meet Multiple Criteria

Aug 30, 2007

I have a file with many intercompany transactions. There is a range of business unit numbers that if anyone one number is in both Column B "Bus Unit" and Column E "Affiliate" I want the row deleted.

Please see the attached, it is more clear I hope. The two yellow rows would be deleted.
The list of business units that I would want to never be on the same row is "4, 7, 41, 44, 46, 51"

## Delete Opposite Rows Based On Multiple Criteria

Feb 29, 2008

I have a Macro that I use daily on a spreadsheet I get with raw line-item transaction data on it. Basically, it deletes columns I don't need to look at, applies column headers, deletes certain rows that I don't need to look at, applies an auto-filter and filters to the first group of data I need to look at, and puts a subtotal on a couple of columns at the top so I can see totals on filtered results.

I need an additional function in this Macro. At some point in the middle of the actions above, I need to evaluate all rows and delete those that are 'opposites' based on a couple of criteria. Basically, I need to delete any transactions that have been refunded in their entirety, because for my purposes those are zeroed out and I don't want to see them....

## Delete Rows Where Multiple Columns Meet Criteria

Apr 4, 2008

I am looking for an Excel VBA code that can delete pair of rows that has certain criteria. I have included an example in the attachment and highlighted the rows that should be deleted. Since the values in each coloumn is going to change every day , I am looking for a dynamic code.

The objective is to:

To delete rows that has same code (columnd D), same basis (coloumn E), same Effective (coloumn H), value of TT (Column J) is either TI or TO and has offsetting Amounts (L) ie the sume becomes zero. Example pair of row 7 and row 8 as well as pair of row 12 and row 13 should be deleted.

TO and TI are actually transfer in and transfer out. Since the TI and TO for these rows make the amount zero for same code and same basis on the same effective date, I do not want to include this in the spreadsheet.

## Macro To Delete Rows On A Criteria

Aug 8, 2007

I have macro code to hide rows based on a certain critera but I don't know how to adapt the code to delete the rows. Basically it checks a column and for every row

## Delete Duplicate Rows Based On Multiple Cell Criteria

Apr 21, 2007

I have some VB code, courtesy of OzGrid and Davc4, that works well to delete duplicate rows based on criteria in Column A of the active worksheet (albeit a bit slow on large files).

How do I modify the code below to evaluate duplicate data in Columns A through D? .....

## Delete Entire Rows Where 1 Column Meets Multiple Criteria

Sep 17, 2007

I need create a macro to perform the following - I don't know if it needs to be an Excel macro or via VB. This is to speed a process up and eliminate any spreadsheet messing around for our "admin" staff - they are not good with excel at all!

So, I have a daily/weekly down load of a spreadsheet (exported from access).

* I want to copy the values of column AK to A
* Then delete all entries in column D that equal 19, 20 and 6
* Then delete all entries in column AL that equal "A","B","C" or "D" but not "E","F" or "G"
* Then delete entire rows where the value in column A is a duplicate within the list

I will call this spreadsheet, for the purpose of this exercise, the "Master". I now have another spreadsheet with values in that should relate to values in either (or both) columns A and B in the "Master". I need Spreadsheet 2 values to be highlighted as cross checked in the "Master" and then all those in the "Master" that do not appear in the 2nd S/S will be normal white cells thus showing that they need to be chased by our Admin staff.

## Macro - How To Delete Rows With Specific Criteria

May 21, 2012

I was searching for a macro to delete rows that obey a specific criteria. I downloaded [URL]..... and copied the Loop Example to my WorkBook.

When using Mr. de Bruin example, it worked perfectly, it did really delete the rows that obeyed my ">2" criteria. Although, when using on my workbook, the macro deleted the values, not the entire rows. Here's what's happening:

I would like to delete rows, not only values.

Code:

'The code below will delete every row in the usedrange with "ron" in the A column.
'If .Value = "ron" Then .EntireRow.Delete
'
'I use the A column in my example, change the A to your column in this code line.
'With .Cells(Lrow, "A")
'
'Change ron and the A to your search word and column before you try the macro.
'See the examples on the worksheet if you want to do something different.
Sub Loop_Example()
Dim Firstrow As Long

## Excel Macro Delete Rows Where Date Criteria Is In Another Sheet

Feb 28, 2014

I am trying to adapt a macro which deletes all rows in Worksheet 1 where the date in column K differs from a date in Worksheet 2. The date in Worksheet 2 will change each day.

I think the macro below could be used, but don't understand how to replace the "Value = ":70:" with a reference to the master date in Worksheet 2.

Sub test() Dim lr As Long, i As Long lr = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Row
For i = lr To 1 Step -1 If Cells(lr, 1).Value = ":70:" Then
Cells(lr, 1).EntireRow.Delete End If lr = lr - 1 Next i End Sub

## Macro To Delete If Set Of Multiple Rows Equals Another Set Of Rows

May 10, 2012

I need a macro that can look at multiple (say three) rows and delete those rows if they match another three rows in the worksheet.

For example:

1 0
3 1
5 7
4 4
6 5
8 3
1 8
5 2
3 9
6 5
8 3
1 8
7 5

If three rows are the same, then one set is deleted (it can be either bottom or top set). I would like to do this for rows 1-500 in the worksheet.

## Macro Button To Add / Delete Rows Across Multiple Sheets

Jul 24, 2014

I've been piecing a macro together from different sites and have run into a couple issues I can't find resolutions to. I have a excel doc for tracking paint emissions per week. I would like to have a button on my master tab that will add a row and fill the formatting from the line above across all 60 some sheets. Ideally I would like the same button to first prompt if you want to add or delete rows. When adding rows I would like it to add it above the button (there's 3 buttons and for 3 different sections) and if deleting ask which row to delete. If it can't be done in one button that's fine, I can live with that. The big thing I need is for it to replicate across all of the excel sheets. I've attached a copy of the document

## Macro To Search Multiple Values And Delete Rows.

Nov 5, 2008

How to create a macro to search a value and delete the row but I'm having trouble trying to get this to search multiple values. Keep in mind I'm really new at attempting to create a macro so this may look terrible ;-)

I have a list of 20 numbers (changes from time to time) and I need to filter any row containing any one of these numbers out of my results each day. I am currently able to filter a single group of numbers but get an end error every time I attempt to string a group of numbers.

This is what I have so far and is an example. We'll use three numbers as an example.

"12345","12346","12347" are the numbers that we'll use for the example that I need to filter. The code that I have is:

## Excel Macro / VBA That Will Hide Rows Based On Multiple Criteria

May 23, 2012

I would like to hide rows for data that does not meet specific criteria. For example: If a user selects room number 101 from a drop down in B1, I want to filter data in range A3:F1000 to show me only room 101 rows (A column) where C column contains a value larger than zero OR D column contains a value larger than zero OR E column contains a value larger than zero. I do not want it to return rows where 101 may be in other columns beside A.

Sample:

A B C D E F
__________________________________
1 ROOM: 101
2
3
4 101 XX 1.2 0 0 P
16 101 YA 0 0 1.1 L
23 101 JJ 3.2 2.1 0 L
55 101 JJ 0 0 1 P

So, if a row contains 101 in column A and all three values in columns C, D, and E equal 0, then those rows will be hidden.

## Delete Multiple Columns By Column Name No Criteria Need, Just Delete Them

Jun 24, 2009

I would like a macro to find the columns named "apple" and "peach" and delete them. These would always be in row 1 but would always be in different column letters which is why I want the macro to simply find these columns by their name and not by their column letter.

And yes, I do mean the entire column altogether, shifting entire columns to the left. Wipe it off the face of the earth

## Delete Rows Matching Criteria & Move Rows

Aug 28, 2007

I have a worksheet in which I have sorted the data based in date and numbering (column I and E). I would like to create 2 macros for following actions:

1- all rows with the value "TOM" in column C will have to be deleted.

2- all rows with a value of 601 or 602 in column E, will have to be moved to the bottom of the sheet after the last row with data. The rows that have been moved will have to be sorted based in date (column I) and numbering (column E).

## Delete Rows Based On Criteria & X Rows Below

Mar 5, 2008

This sheet has A:K columns and 1:3212 rows. There are 'page headers' that are in the text file that I want to delete (the text file was exported from an AS400 program). The first row that starts the page header has SA341 in column 1. Each page header has 5 rows. I used this code from one of the other threads on deleting rows, but I obviously do not understand the code as it deleted all rows that contained SA341.
Sub DeleteRows()
Column_To_Check = 1
Start_Row = 1
End_Row = ActiveSheet. Cells(Rows.Count, Column_To_Check).End(xlUp).Row
MsgBox End_Row
Search_String = "SA341"
For Row_Counter = End_Row To Start_Row Step -1
If ActiveSheet.Cells(Row_Counter, Column_To_Check).Value < SA341 > Search_String Then
ActiveSheet.Rows(Row_Counter).Delete

End If
Next Row_Counter
End Sub

## Delete Rows Once Two Criteria Met?

## Delete Rows That Fit Criteria

Dec 9, 2007

I have an excel 2007 file, which is quite big: ~10mb. There are situated plenty of columns with coordinates. I would like to transcribe it, modify those data, but it will take me ages. I'm not acquainted with macros, but I heard that people can do with them everything using computers' abilities. I'll abridge my whole problem.

I give you a sample of that file, so please open it. In the file you can see two 'columns'. Every column has two other columns called x and y. As you are thinking now these two columns are containing arguments (in x column) and their values (in column y). Every third column is empty. In attached file you see, that arguments are repeating and values are increasing by one. Sometimes there is an argument without repeats, and sometimes there are only two repeating arguments.

What I wanted to do is delete those repeating arguments leaving arguments with the highest and the lowest value. Example: Please look at range A230:B232. There are three repeating arguments and for this case I should delete row 231 from columns A&B and then move cells up to join separated columns. There are also not repeating arguments, which I need to double. If there will be only two repeating arguments I would like leave them. In the end I should have a clear view for all those coordinates.

## Delete Rows That DO NOT Contain Criteria Texts

Dec 15, 2012

I am looking for a macro to delete rows that DO NOT contain criteria. But what I could achieve so far is deleting all rows except the first word ie ACC here. My code so far is as follows

I would like a macro that scrolls through each row and deletes it if it contains the word "Account" in column B.

## Delete Last 10 Rows With Data (no Criteria)

Feb 14, 2009

I simply want to delete the last 10 rows containing date from a worksheet. No criteria other than they contain data anywhere in the row.

## Delete Rows Based On Two Criteria Within Each Row

Sep 24, 2009

I have a sheet with say 1000+ rows that is a QA report of possible mistakes found in a employee rostering tool.

The report finds all occurrences where the staff member only has one coffee break rather than the two they are entitled to. However, on days where they have training, or other half day commitments, on of the coffee breaks is not entered into out tool. This means we are getting a whole lot of entries that we do not require(i.e. one coffee break error).

The tool uses icons but the cells do have a single unique character under each icon type. For example, the coffee break cells have a "T" and training cells have a "&" underneath the icon (without quotes). The staff members day is separated into 15 minute blocks and each block occupies a cell in a column. This means each staff members day spans many columns in a row (i.e. C=8am, D=8:15am, E=8:30am etc...).

What I have been trying to accomplish is to create a macro in VB code that will locate any row with both a "T and a "&" and delete it. This will eliminate occurrences that we are aware of and leave only genuine errors. There are other combination's that I would like to include also such as:
"T" "["
"T" "#"
"T" "@"
"T" "]"

The first row is headers and the first two columns contain team names and staff names which I am trying to exclude (because names contains "T"'s ).

I have spent many hours now looking for example code on Google, this forum and other forums, however most of the examples I have found are looking for two criteria within a column or specific criteria that is not suitable to my application (i.e. values <> certain numbers etc...).
