Delete cells with content that don't contain the =?UTF-8?B?wqMgc3ltYm9s?=

I have a very large messy excel file that contains some data I want to isolate. The other data is unneeded and basically in the way.

I want to delete/clear all the other cells that do not contain the ? pound symbol. This way I will be left with just the pricing info I need. 

All help appreciated

"Be careful what you wish for"

This can be done with a VBA Macro:

To enter this Macro (Sub), <alt-F11> opens the Visual Basic Editor.
Ensure your project is highlighted in the Project Explorer window.
Then, from the top menu, select Insert/Module and
paste the code below into the window that opens.

To use this Macro (Sub), <alt-F8> opens the macro dialog box. Select the macro by name, and <RUN>.
It will clear every cell that does not contain the � sign in either the text string or the numberformat string.

The caveat is that, as you requested, ALL cells that do not contain the � will be cleared.  You will find that any cells that have labels, or descriptive data, but do not contain the � sign, will also be cleared.  
Is this what you want?
If not, and if the cells you wish to process are, for example, numbers not formatted with the � sign, please be more specific about your data.  If some of that data you wish to retain is text containing the � sign, the algorithm will be different than if the data to be retained is numeric data formatted with the � sign.

Option Explicit
Sub ClearPoundData()
    Dim rg As Range, c As Range
    Const sPound As String = "�"
Set rg = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
For Each c In rg
    If InStr(c.Text, sPound) = 0 And _
        InStr(c.NumberFormat, sPound) = 0 Then
    End If
Next c
End Sub

Outlook delegate-mailbox deletion problem
This sounds like an easy one however, haven't found resolution yet. Here's scenario... User B reported to User A and added A to his delegation for being copied on all meeting request replies (done from Outlook 2000). All was well until User A left the company and mailbox was subsequently archived and deleted. Ever since the mailbox deletion, all attendees accepting a meeting request from User B receive an NDR referencing inability to deliver reply to User A's mailbox. The typical answer would be to open User B's Outlook app, goto delegates and remove User A.. The problem is...

Problems with re-setting the last active cell in an Excel workshee
I am trying to re-set the last active cell on an Excel 2002 worksheet (in this particular sheet it should be cell DA197). I have used both the methods described in the Knowledge Base article (deleting rows and columns and re-saving; and the Excess Format Cleaner add-in). Deleting the rows and columns does not work; using the Excess Format Cleaner does not work either and it then also hides the rows from 198 to 65536 - but does not do the same for the columns. I have checked that there is no protection on the worksheet. Has anyone else come across this problem and if so can you please ...

Conditional Formatting
Is it possible to format a portion of a text string within a cell (as opposed to the entire cell). For example, I would like to format the word 'gift' in red font anywhere it a appears in range C2:C417 but only that word, not the entire cell. Not with conditional formatting. But you could change the actual format for that word (or group of characters)... Saved from a previous post (or two!): If you want to change the color of just the characters, you need VBA in all versions. You want a macro????

CRM Bulk Delete of Activities
We are new to CRM, and in the "testing" phase of implementation. Our marketing group has used smart lists and quick campaign which results in 30,000 open activies (emails). We can respond/delete/acknowledge them 250 at a time via the activities view. Clearly waiting for screen refreshes 120 times would waste a lot of time.

Formatting cell for phone numbers
I am trying to format a cell with phone numbers so that it will look like the following: (937) 123-3456 (937) 129-9876 fax or (937) 123-3456 The word 'fax' is more specifically a label, not necessarily that word.
