    I need some help in creating a macro in Excel 2010 for deleting rows that contain specific characters (the pound sign) in the text. I cannot get it to recognize the # as text. Also the # is embedded as part of a line of text which varies, so I also need a wildcard. Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks.
