    Excel cell delete - String problem


    The following procedure deletes any cells with UAT in the text of that
    cell moving down the column. The problem is in that column are
    sometimes words like:

    valuation etc etc

    This gets deleted because it contains UAT. How do I specify that only cells
    with the specific UAT string get deleted?

    Sub DeleteUAT()

    Dim count As Integer

    Do While count < Range("H65536").End(xlUp).Row
    If Cells(count, 14).Value = "UAT" Then
    Cells(count, 14).Delete
    count = count + 1
    End If

    count = 1
    End Sub

    The test condition will not return true if its valuation, only if its uat. Maybe there is something with the delete operation throwing the count out of sync.
