I have a macro that searches row by row for specific text, and if it exists deletes the entire row. (see below for the portion that checks the cell value). I need to add a check for a substring to this. The sub string would be: "****»ITERATIVE" How would I do that. I have never worked with substrings in Excel before.

If (.Value = "*********...op/DesktopServlet") Or (.Value = "*******RebuildParameterFilesTask") Or
(.Value ="*******SetVariableTask") Or (.Value = "******»...op/DesktopServlet") Then .EntireRow.Delete
End If

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Hi there,

Try:
Code:
If .Value = "*********...op/DesktopServlet" Or _
   .Value = "*******RebuildParameterFilesTask" Or _
   .Value = "*******SetVariableTask" Or _
   .Value = "******»...op/DesktopServlet" Or _
   InStr(r.Value, "****»ITERATIVE") > 0 Then .EntireRow.Delete
End If

This is unclear but I think that you are looking for something like

Code:
if .value like "~****»ITERATIVE"
