Delete the rows with particular values from excel/DT

Hello ,

I have a excel file - say - A.xlsx.
It has a column A -
I want to delete all those rows which has value - “zzz” for the column A.

I am able to open the excel file , then read range then save it to Data table

Please help

Thank you

What did you already try until now?


Hi @Seem,
Here are the steps I have in mind:

  1. Read the excel file using Read Range activity.
  2. Create a variable that will store the row number (e.g. rowCounter).
  3. Use For Each Row to loop through the rows of the data table output of Read Range.
    3.1 If row(“A”) = “zzz”, Then use Insert/Delete Rows. In the activity, use the rowCounter variable in the Position property and set the ChangeMode to Remove.
    3.2 Increment rowCounter by 1 (Assign: rowCounter = rowCounter + 1)

…, uawd filter

  1. read and delete the entire range
  2. filter the datatable to exclude the ones that on column A have zzz
  3. write the datatable to the range


The filter dint work .
I had tried it…

I am having 3 conditions to be full filled.
I did 2 by using filter
this did not work

I want to delete all those rows which has a string value - Sponsered.

i really dont no what went wrong and why its not working
