Hello All,

This is my first post so If I am missing any details please let me know.

I have a spreadsheet where I sum the total of all the rows below a certain cell, I do so for about 80 columns. I would like to write a marco which deletes the entire column if that sum = 0

I have the below written, but it does not work in every circumstance it seems to pick random columns to delete...I need a better way to do this please help!!

Dim Cusips As Range
Dim NumCusips As Integer
Dim Col As Integer


Sheets("Corp").Select
Range("FirstCorpCell").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select

Set Cusips = Selection
NumCusips = Cusips.Count


For Col = 4 To (NumCusips + 3) Step 1

If Cells(9, Col).Value < 1 Then Columns(Col).EntireColumn.Delete

Next Col

When deleting columns, one should work from right to left.
Code:
For Col = (NumCusips+3) To 4  Step -1
