Windows 7: Macro To Perform Redundant Excel Tasks

Macro To Perform Redundant Excel Tasks


I am trying to extract information from one program, then import it into Excel. Well, the format it is extracted is not the format that is what I need. So, I have been manually deleting all the unneeded rows. My question is there a macro or C-Plus program that can delete these rows for me?

The rows I want to delete will not have data in the first column, where the ones I want to keep do. What is the easiest way to doing this, macro, C-Plus, etc.? And, if it is a macro, is there a macro you recommend? Or, can someone create this for me since I am not a programmer.

Thank you for all your help!

I'm not a programmer and cannot write anything for you.


I use an Excel macro that I did write with help from others. It contains maybe 20 lines of code. When run, it copies all data from a row to the row immediately below it.

I did the coding within Excel using the "Developer" tab. I'd guess it could be done with the C language if you insisted, but I woudn't think it's necessary.

My best advice would be to go to an Excel specialist website such as the Mr. Excel forums, which you can find with Google.
