Hi guys, need help with the following.....


My spreadsheet contains a number of columns, of which one specifies whether a certain row is to be is to be deleted or not.

This column contains the word "delete" in each row that requires deletion.

I would like to be able to return all rows that contain "delete"

Do I use vlookup for this or not???

Any help much appreciated.

Ron

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying
No, VLOOKUP() will only return the 1st "find", it will then stop looking.

I think you will be better off using a filter. Find that on the Home tab, at the end/Sort and Filter/Filter. Uncheck everything but delete
