Hello all,
I'm trying to create a filter so that i can delete anything that contains "Atv", "Utv", "Duallie", and "Dually"
Issues arise when those phrases are sometimes capitalized, sometimes capslocked, and sometimes lowercase.
This is my first attempt with filters in VBA which does the job, but if theres a more efficient way of doing this i'm all ears.
I've been reading up and i like the sound of using Like and Ucase, but i'm unsure of how to incorporate it with what i'm trying to accomplish

Code:
Sub obscureFILTER()
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim lastRow As Long

    Set ws = ActiveSheet
    lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Set rng = ws.Range("B1:B" & lastRow)

    With rng
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=*Atv*", Criteria2:="=*Utv*", Operator:=xlOr
        .Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    End With

    ws.AutoFilterMode = False
    
    With rng
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=*ATV*", Criteria2:="=*UTV*", Operator:=xlOr
        .Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    End With

    ws.AutoFilterMode = False

    With rng
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=*atv*", Criteria2:="=*utv*", Operator:=xlOr
        .Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    End With

    With rng
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=*Duallie*", Criteria2:="=*Dually*", Operator:=xlOr
        .Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    End With

    ws.AutoFilterMode = False
    
    With rng
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=*DUALLIE*", Criteria2:="=*DUALLY*", Operator:=xlOr
        .Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    End With

    ws.AutoFilterMode = False

    With rng
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=*duallie*", Criteria2:="=*dually*", Operator:=xlOr
        .Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    End With

    ws.AutoFilterMode = False


End Sub

Autofilter is not case sensitive, so it will find ATV, atv, atV etc
