Delete method of Range class failed - HELP!

Hi

Any help on this would be appreciated cos its driving me insane.

I have a function in VB.NET that takes in an excel range and tries to
delete rows where the first column starts with a string. Only it
doesnt work and all i get is "Delete method of Range class failed"
whatever i do.

Any suggestions?

Public Function DeleteRowsContaining(ByVal objRange As
Excel.Range, ByVal strDeleteString As String) As Excel.Range

Dim lngRow As Long
Dim strCellValue As String

For lngRow = objRange.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
strCellValue = objRange.Cells(lngRow, 1).Value
If strCellValue.StartsWith(strDeleteString) = True Then
objRange.Rows(lngRow).EntireRow.Delete()
End If
Next lngRow

Return objRange

End Function

Many thanks in advance

You might have to delcare the worksheet as the active sheet before using the
delete range.
