    Years ago I knew how to do this, however, I've slept since then.

    I have a list of multiple columns, used the advanced filter to match a single number in the table, and copied matches to another section in the worksheet.

    Now, how do I delete the matched items from the original list. It seems that Excel had built in capabilities to do that, however, I can't remember where/how.

    Thanks for the help.

    Just select the visible rows in your AutoFiltered list and choose the Edit | Delete... menu command.

    If you copy rather than 'filter in-place' then excel does not hide non-matches.

    Though, I could probably just rerun the filter in-place and follow your suggestion.

    Are there any other suggestions?

    Thanks
