Worksheet.Rows property (Excel)

Returns a Range object that represents all the rows on the specified worksheet.



expression A variable that represents a Worksheet object.


Using the Rows property without an object qualifier is equivalent to using ActiveSheet.Rows. If the active document isn't a worksheet, the Rows property fails.

To return a single row, use the Item property or equivalently include an index in parentheses. For example, both Rows(1) and Rows.Item(1) return the first row of the active sheet.


This example deletes row three on Sheet1.


This example deletes all rows on worksheet one where the value of cell one in the row is the same as the value of cell one in the previous row.

For Each rw In Worksheets(1).Rows 
   this = rw.Cells(1, 1).Value 
   If this = last Then rw.Delete 
   last = this
