Aloha,

 

I have a large data sheet.  I want to remove all lines of data that meet a certain parameter leaving me with the usable data.  How can I do this without manually going through each line?

 

Mahalo nui.

@pppboo808 You can create a binary helper column, but can't really know without seeing the dataset. Can you send over your file, removing any sensitive data?

@adversi sure I can do that.  Do you want me to drop the file in this thread?
