If your list is in column A, then in B1 enter:
=IF(A1=0,A1,"") and copy down. Column B will have the negatives cleared. If you like, you can copy column B and pastespecial/value back onto column A  Gary''s Student  gsnu200754 "Barry Walker" wrote: I have a column containing positive and negative numbers.

Ahh yes,
I did forget to mention that the column of numbers relates to other columns with corresponding information in them. So i need the formula to delete the whole row relating to the negative number for all the negative numbers leaving only positive numbers with their corresponding row information. Sorry about that, can you still help? "Gary''s Student" wrote: If your list is in column A, then in B1 enter: =IF(A1=0,A1,"") and copy down. Column B will have the negatives cleared.

right click the sheet tab, view code and paste this in and run it. It looks
for a zero value in column A and deletes the entire row if it finds one. Sub sonic() lastrow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row For x = lastrow To 1 Step 1 If Cells(x, 1).Value = 0 Then Rows(x).EntireRow.Delete End If Next End Sub Mike "Barry Walker" wrote: Ahh yes, I did forget to mention that the column of numbers relates to other columns with corresponding information in them.

Basil,
Sort your entire list based on that column, then select all the negative numbers and use Edit / Delete.. Entirerow. If you need to maintain the original order, insert another column, enter 1 in the first cell, 2 in the second, select both cells and drag down, then do the sort/delete, and then resort based on the inserted column to restore the original order. Then get rid of that column. HTH, Bernie MS Excel MVP "Barry Walker" wrote in message ... I have a column containing positive and negative numbers.

Filter your data using DataFilterAoutfilter. Excel offers the SUBTOTAL
function which will ignore the hidden cells. You can do a lot of stuff using the SUBTOTAL function (like AVERAGE, SUM, MIN, MAX etc.).

Select the full range of data, then apply an autofilter. Filter to show
the negative numbers (using the Custom option in the filter), and then Delete Row. As ever, safest to save a copy before you try this.  David Biddulph "Barry Walker" wrote in message ...
