Features of !SEMTools

When working with data in Excel, you often have to clear data from unnecessary rows and columns. This is easy to do when the rows that fall under the pattern to be deleted are few.

But, if you have tens or hundreds of thousands of rows, and you have several patterns, for example, the task may become impossible to complete.

What are patterns? These are the conditions on which you select the rows or columns you believe are unnecessary.

Examples of such patterns:

  • a column or a row is empty,
  • the presence of empty cells in the column,
  • the presence of a particular character or several characters,
  • the presence of several combinations of letters,
  • the presence of several words,
  • the presence of several word combinations.
