I need code that will delete the entire row where the word EC appears in Col A at the end of the text for eg where A8749EC appears in Col A, the entire row must be deleted

Your assistance will be most appreciated

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Try

Code:
Sub DelEC()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = LR To 1 Step -1
    If Right(Range("A" & i).Value, 2) = "EC" Then Rows(i).Delete
Next i
End Sub
