How To Delete Complete Lines?
I am working a lot with Excel and need to clean the spreadshets fron unnecessary items. Since the sheets are rather long (usualy more than 5K lines) and that the same data is found in many lines, I need to go through all of them to remove such data.
My question is:
Is there a way (Script or macro) to remove these automatically, something similar to the search and replace function. Can I create such a script or macro in which I can enter some text to search for and then delete the entire lines? For example, I want to delete all lines containing the word ''Excel'' (completely, not only erasing the content which can be done with search and replace).
If it can be done, would you be kind enough to explain how as I am fairly green in VB and macros.
Drawing Lines That One Can Delete?
Hello, I know how to dynamically create and drag around an image or label.
However I am curious if it is possible to dynamically create a line that a user can make their own length by dragging.
The big thing I am wanting to see is how can a user then click on that line to delete it?

Delete Lines From Input File
I have gotten my VB program to create and write lines to a file. What I need to know is how do I modify my file and remove the first line or remove the first few lines.
Basically what I have is a program that will display a list of applications to install. The user selects what apps he/she wants and the program will create a file and write a list of the selected apps to that file. I then turn around and read from that file and install the apps in the order they occur. The problem I am running into, is when I restart the PC, I need the first how ever many lines it made it through before the restart to be removed from my input file.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

VB 6.0: Delete Blank Lines In RTF Text Box
I need to place a lot of text into a control with a transparent background. The label command doesn't give me scroll bars, so that doesn't work. Passing "chr(10) & chr(13)" to a standard text box doesn't give me line breaks. So, I'm using a rich text box, which accepts the line breaks, but creates an extra one. Neither text box supports a transparent background. Is there a better solution?

Delete/skip Lines Method
Is there any easy way to delete/skip the first 20 lines from a textfile? Since i´m a bit of a newbie, the only
way i´ve found so far is to do 20 line inputs to discard those lines, but the code looks kinda crappy like that.
Any other way to do this?

Delete Multiple Lines From Text File!
How do I delete multiple lines from a text file?
Actually in my web browser project, users can add different URLs to their list of Favorites. The Favorites are written in a text file as & when they get added. Like IE, the Favorites are displayed in a menu. Users can also import their IE Favorites for which they have to click a menu item. When IE Favorites get imported, those Favorites are also populated in the text file where the other Favorites are written.
Now I want to give users the option to delete IE Favorites, if one wishes to do so. Deleting IE Favorites means all the IE Favorites have to be deleted from the text file & at the same time, the Favorites that the user added exclusively should be retained! So how do I delete all the IE Favorites from the text file ensuring that the non-IE Favorites are retained?

How Can I Delete Multiple Lines In A RTFbox With Code?
I would like to use code to be able to delete multiple continguous lines of text from an RTFbox. For example, I might choose lines 3-7, and delete them, erasing all null spaces so that line 8 immediately follows line 2 in the RTFbox.
I would prefer to use the API call SendMessage to do so, as I am using it to Replace and Insert lines in the box, but haven't been able to get it to completely delete lines (always leaves blank spaces).
I am using VB6.

Too Many Lines In Text File For Excel .....
I have a .CSV file with 70,000+ lines in it.
Opening in Excel stops at 65536 (max number of lines per sheet).
Using the Import Wizard reliably tells you it cannot load it all on 1 sheet, and to retake the Import option and load the rest in another sheet separately.
What it doesn't tell you is that it has NOT stored the point it has got up to, so tries from the start again !?!?!
Anyone had this problem ?

Printing Select Lines From Excel
I'm not only new to this forum, but I'm new to VB. I've been reading, and trying to practice using the samples from the books, but am having some trouble. I type everything in EXACTLY the way it appears in the books and my debugger finds faults. Since I am new - I can't figure out how to fix the problems and ultimately solve my real problem which is this:
I have an Excel Spreadsheet that contains all the elements of a quote - even 2500 possible items to choose from with pricing. When you actually create your quote, you rename the file and put in quantities for the items you want. In the past, this was contained in a QuattroPro database with a macro to print the quote with ONLY the rows that had quantities entered (in column "H"). The remaining items that were not part of the quote were not printed.
So, this has been converted to Excel due to the lack of help from the Corel people for QuattroPro. Now, how does one write the macro for this in Excel? There is a "header", then the items selected and a "footer". I say Header and Footer, because they are part of the spreadsheet and you want them to print out once - not on every page.
Does this make sense? I was thinking of using an If Then statement, but since I can't seem to test out even the simplest thing in VB, I'm stuck. Am I on the right track?
Sorry this is so long,
Starting New Lines In A Messagebox Excel VBA
When writing a long message for a messagebox in the VBA Editor for Excel a long line seems to go endlessly to the right but using the Enter-key to shorten the line is causing problems.
I found the following code and was very happy since I thought it would also give new lines in the message box. But it did not.
Dim strMessage As String
strMessage = "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers " _
& "brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, " _
& "conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the " _
& "proposition that all men are created equal."
I would be much obliged if you can tell me how to end a line in a messagebox and start a new one - if that is possible to do of course

60000+ Lines Of Data Export To Excel
So I am trying to export about 100,000 lines of data in Access to Excel.
Does anyone know how to do this. I'm guessing it'll have to be done by putting the 100,000 on several worksheets but I do not know how to do this.
Is anyone familiar with this? I am actually exporting a PivotTable but Access only allows me to export to the first worksheet of Excel and therefore the remaining 40,000 lines of data are lost...
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am doing this all in Visual Basic in Access, btw.
Reading Subject Lines On Outlook ==> From Excel...
I have to do an automation with Outlook, however, not to send messages, but to read them.
The problem is:
One folder gets hundreds of messages per day and the user must identify a specific type of message and copy part of it's subject text into an excel worksheet and then run a macro on it.
But that lad has to stay looking at the screen ALL THE TIME!: 8-0:
If I (with your help) can automate this, this person will be able to work on something more challenging, you know...
I have added the reference to Outlook but so far I can't get started something to actually activate Outlook and read all the messages in a folder. (don't need to read the body of the email, just the subject).
I imagine that a collection of messages must exist somewhere and I wonder if you guys can help me.
Thanks in advance !
Sending E-mail Through Excel, Need To Skip Lines
I've written a program in excel VBA which sets up an e-mail, pastes info from the excel spreadsheet into the e-mail, and then sends it when the user clicks a command button. However, the problem I've run into is that the information it pastes always pastes at the very beginning of the e-mail. I need it to paste six lines down and four spaces to the right. Can anyone help me out and let me know what I need to do to accomplish this? I can't seem to find any code that will do it. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
Excel Scatter Chart - Leader Lines

If DateDiff("d", a.Cells(x, 10), Now) > 90 Then

Can anyone tell me why my routine can not delete the Excel process it creates? I was viewing the process using WINDOWS NT task manager under process.

Delete Loop In Excel
I need Excel to delete all the sheets in a workbook except for a select few. I came up with a code that can do this as long as I give it the names of the sheets I want to keep.
My problem is that there's a set of sheets that are numbered based on an input value from the user. When I use this code, it only keeps the first of these sheets and deletes the others. I want to avoid hardcoding this as I have no idea how many sheets each user will need (besides, it's bad practice).
Dim ws, Needed As Boolean, i As Integer
For Each ws In Worksheets
Needed = False
If ws.Name = "Inputs" Then Needed = True
If ws.Name = "Scenarios" Then Needed = True
'The problem is in this loop
For i = 1 To Sets
If ws.Name = "Alternatives List " & i Then Needed = True
If Needed = False Then ws.Delete
Just so you know, Sets is given by another code and I've been working with the value '3.' Unfortunately, even setting the inside For loop for 1 to 3 doesn't work. So I'm stumped.
Any help would be appreciated.

Excel VB - Click, Delete Row
i've seen answers to questions similar to mine... but none worked for me..
Basically, I have a user interface (user form) which has various inputs. On a button click, this input generates a report.
In the report, each element has its own line. Therefore, if a few elements are not selected, there are empty rows. I need these rows to be deleted when the report is generated.
