Delete Cells based on value of one cell

Hello,

I have three cells with data (Subtotal; (blank) means there's no data in the cell):

Column H | Column I | Column J | Column K | Column L
----------------------------------------------------
Subtotal | (blank) | 0.0 | 0.0 | (blank)
-----------------------------------------------------
(blank row)
-----------------------------------------------------
Total | (blank) | 3.0 | 1.0 | (blank)

I want to find Subtotal and if it has 0.0 and 0.0 in columns J and K, then delete those cells (not the entire row only the cells), and move cells up so that the result is:

Column H | Column I | Column J | Column K | Column L
----------------------------------------------------
(blank cells)
-----------------------------------------------------
Total | (blank) | 3.0 | 1.0 | (blank)

If possible, I'd like to delete the blank cells as well.

Help! I tried to do a search for deleting cells based on the value of one cell but only saw deleting rows based on the value of one cell.:eek:

Dear B-E

This is lengthy, but it does the job by using the built in excel sort instead of shift cells up. Basically, read the incoming ranges, turn all 0's into blanks, then sort each column in the range one column at a time from toprow to bottomrow of the selection. Selection can be a single set of columns/rows (contiguous) or split columns/rows (non contiguous)

Copy the code below to a module and run as a macro or put a command button on the sheet. If code on the sheet and not in module, get rid of keyword Public.

Public Sub test()
Dim AreaCount, CellCount, DollarPos, i As Integer
Dim LeftCol, RightCol, BottomRow, TopRow As Long
Dim Col$, Row1$, Row2$
Dim Cell As Range
Dim NewSelection As Range
Dim LeftAddr, RightAddr As Range
Dim RangeAddr As Variant

AreaCount = Selection.Areas.Count

If AreaCount <= 1 Then
'ONE CONTIGUOUS SELECTION AREA
'CONTIGUOUS COLUMNS,ROWS, NO SEPARATE RANGE AREAS

Set NewSelection = Range(Selection.Address)
CellCount = NewSelection.Count

'ONLY PROCESS A RANGE WITH MORE THAN 1 CELL
If CellCount > 1 Then
RangeAddr = Split(NewSelection.Address, ":")

Set LeftAddr = Range(RangeAddr(0)) 'draw out first column/row
LeftCol = LeftAddr.Column
TopRow = LeftAddr.Row

Set RightAddr = Range(RangeAddr(1)) 'draw out last column/row
RightCol = RightAddr.Column
BottomRow = RightAddr.Row

'LIMITED TO COLS A-Z FOR NOW UNLESS YOU WANT THE REST
If Selection.Columns.Count > 1 Then
Row1$ = CStr(TopRow)
Row2$ = CStr(BottomRow)
'Process All Columns
For i = LeftCol To RightCol
Col$ = Chr$(i + 64)
Set NewSelection = Range(Col$ & Row1$ & ":" & Col$ & Row2$)
GoSub BlankAndSort
Next
Else
'Single Column
GoSub BlankAndSort
End If
End If
Else
'MULTIPLE AREAS SELECTED
For i = 1 To AreaCount
Set NewSelection = Selection.Areas(i)
CellCount = NewSelection.Count
'ONLY PROCESS A RANGE WITH MORE THAN 1 CELL
If CellCount > 1 Then
GoSub BlankAndSort
End If
Next
End If

Exit Sub

BlankAndSort:
For Each Cell In NewSelection
If Cell.Value = 0 Then
Cell.Value = ""
End If
Next
RangeAddr = Split(NewSelection.Address, ":")
Set LeftAddr = Range(RangeAddr(0)) 'draw out top cell for sort key
NewSelection.Sort Key1:=Range(LeftAddr.Address), Order1:=xlAscending, _
OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
Return

End Sub

Forgot, with the subroutine i supplied, it's expected that the selection was already made before the routine was invoked.
