Autofilter and Delete

Autofilter and Delete

Autofilter and Delete

I would like to Autofilter an Excel worksheet based on criteria and delete the visible rows. I know Excel VBA has such capability.


Can you help me in writing such code in VBScript?

RE: Autofilter and Delete


Turn on your macro recorder and record the process of
1) SELECTing all the ROWs of data
2) FILTERing the ROWs you want DELETEd

Turn off your recorder and Alt+F11 to activate the VB Editor. COPY the recorded code and PASTE here for help customizing.

RE: Autofilter and Delete

I have figured out a solution. Here is the attached code.

CODE --> VBScript

const xlUp = -4162
lastRow = ws1.UsedRange.Rows.Count
lastColumn = ws1.UsedRange.Columns.Count

Set rngDataBlock = ws1.Range(ws1.Cells(1,1),ws1.Cells(lastRow,lastColumn))

rngDataBlock.AutoFilter 4,"a",,,False

If ws1.Cells(1,4).Value = "a" Then
	ws1.AutoFilter.Range.Delete xlUp
	ws1.AutoFilter.Range.Offset(1).Delete xlUp
End If

ws1.AutoFilterMode = False
