Code:
            Range("A5").Offset(1, 0).Select
            Do Until ActiveCell.Value = ""
            If ActiveCell.Text = "J750*" Or ActiveCell.Text = "=A5*M*" Then ActiveCell.EntireRow.Hidden = True
            ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
            Loop

the wildcard character is not working...y is that?
 

Excel Facts

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Try using the Like operator instead ie:

ActiveCell.Text Like "J750*"

Have a look at the help file on the Like operater for more info.
