Macro To Find And Delete?

Dec 3, 2009

I have tried to record this but I cannot get it to work? On the tab “Add & Delete” cell “L17” I have a drop down list that is a list of the policy numbers from the “Data” tab.

What I am trying to do is assign a macro that searches column “J” on the “Data” tab based on the “L17” content on the Tab “Add & Delete” when it finds the data it then clears the contents of that entire row.

Complicated Find Value Delete Row Macro?

Feb 15, 2014

In column B I have a list of blank cells and cells that contain values. I want a macro to search for 'Jobs' and if it finds this word in column B then delete the entire row where it is find and also delete the row below it if column B is blank and also delete the row below again if column B is blank (up to 8 rows below where the word is find at most will be blank)

When it eventually finds a cell that is not blank, then exit sub.

Macro To Find Reference In A Column And Delete Everything Below It

Oct 18, 2009

I have a file here included which has 8 + columns. I normally have to go through each column and find when the references start and delete everything below it. If i could have a macro find where the references start in each column and delete on down that would be a huge time saver.


Thats the example of the reference i run into, i was thinking of a macro to find where the REF starts and delete that cell and everything on down.

Find Macro To Delete Rows: 3 Questions

Jun 4, 2007

I have a worksheet that is several thousand rows long. It is sectioned into various "topics" (e.g. Revenue, Profit); each topic (there are about 100) has 10 companies. The 10 companies are the same for each topic. For instance, if 2 of the companies are Microsoft and Intel, then there will be a Microsoft row and an Intel row within each topic.

I am trying to write some code to delete every instance of a company (the user indicates the company in a form). So, for instance, if I want to delete Microsoft, the user would enter the stock ticker, MSFT, into the form and press the appropriate command button. When the command button is pressed, the code should find each row that contains the ticker MSFT (the tickers happen to be in column B) and delete it.

I have written the following unsuccessful
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Dim Ticker As String
Ticker = TextBox1.Value

'If IsText(Ticker) Then


Cells.Find(What:=Ticker, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=False).Activate..........

Find Range And Delete Duplicate Value In Specified Column With VB Macro

Apr 21, 2009

See attached doc "Find and Delete.xlsx". Inside, the value in F12 is a very important cell. Using the text value from F12, I first want to use visual basic code to find the range in column B because it will vary. This means the 'text words' column might have 50 words or it might have 2000. I have racked my brain trying to find a universal way to find a variable range.

Then I would like to search for the exact text value within this range in column
B. For example, in F12 is the text word 'windows xp registry cleaner' and you can see that this value is in B9. There will only be one exact match in column B.

I then would like the vb script to delete and remove this found value, then move left one space in column A to also delete the ID number associated with the text word. Then shift both rows up to fill the empty gap. I have tried numerous different codes but to be honest, I'm not really sure what I'm looking for. I've tinkered with find and replace, vlookup, match, find, search, and many more.

Macro To Find Word And Delete Group Of Cells?

Aug 1, 2014

I have an excel file, where there is a section "Additional Requirements". This section is repeated like 20-25 times in the sheet and has a group of merged cells below it to enter data as shown in the picture. Issue is that majority of these "Additional Requirements" are not filled by the user. Hence maybe only 3 or 4 are filled and I have to manually delete the rest. I tried the code below, but it doesn't do anything.Running the macro just jumps the cells slowly downwards the sheet. Maybe if the macro runs 10-15 times it reads the whole code and then moves on to the next row.8-1-2014 12-43-27 PM.png What I'm trying to achieve is:

1. for the macro to find "Additional Requirements"

2. Then check the Merged cell below it (thus the offset)

3. If this cell is blank, select this cell and the cell containing "Additional Requirements"

4. Delete entire rows of these cells/delete the selection (entirerow.delete). (I read somewhere to set a variable as selection and clear it, hence ive included in the unreadable code. This wasn't working either)

Macro - To Delete Whole Rows After We 'control' Find Something From A Specific Column

Aug 26, 2008

I am not the best at this, but we recorded a macro and we want to delete whole rows after we 'control' find something from a specific column. WHen we recorded our macro, it finds the first instance and we hightlight the whole row and 'control' 'shift' 'end' and delete all of the rows. We did this because we sorted and made sure the information we wanted to delete was at the bottom of the worksheet. we realized that each day the spreadsheet we pull from an ip address gets bigger and the row that we started from to delete starts on a different row each day. How do we get all the information to delete everyday, even when the row that Owned starts on changes? ...

Batch Find And Replace (Delete Row)?

Aug 11, 2014

I have an excel spreadsheet with a list of numbers in column A. These are all "random" numbers in that they don't follow an order, but they mean something elsewhere.

The rest of the columns have other information that is related to the number in the same row.

I have another list of random numbers which is much smaller than the original, but all of the numbers on the smaller list (which is in a different excel document but can easily be put in its own column) are in the larger list as well..

I want to compare the two lists, and if the number from the smaller list is found on the larger list, I want the entire row deleted and all the remaining cells shifted up. I do not want any blank rows between the data.
