Hi all,

I have a column in a sheet which was imported from our system, the problem is that the percentage sign '%' is placed into a cell on its own, when it infact belongs to the cell before it (to the left).

I want to be able to loop through column I, find each % sign, select that cell and delete (shift cells left).

I think this is relatively straight forward, I just can't get the loop to work right.

Thanks,

J
