    Delete a line that includes a certain name



      I import a list of names everyday from excel into indesign and would like to whittle the list down of people who are no longer with the company. Is there find/change command I can set up to delete the whole line that a certain name appears on? In the example below, is there a way to delete Rob's entire line (rob's line shows up in multiple spots so that is why I would prefer something I can run everyday rather than deleting it manually)? Since they are coming in from excel, each line ends with a paragraph break and the values are separated by tabs. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
