Question
Is there a I can delete entries in an excel spreadsheet based on certain information? For example, I have a spreadsheet with UK Postcodes (both active and terminated). I would like to delete all entries that have a termination date.

Answer
One way is to filter the table on that termination date column, in which you leave all dates checked and uncheck the Blanks checkbox (near bottom of list). Then hit F5, click Special and select blanks. Then hit the del key. After that you can sort the table to get rid of the empty rows.
