    InDesign Table > Remove cells with "x"



      I am new to this forum, and I have a rather urgent job I need to complete for a client. Unfortunately I dont not know anything about scripting (except for clicking existng presets).


      I have a tyesetting project in Indesign CS4 that I have created a data merge from Excel.

      This created a table for each entry and a cell for each line entry. One of my line entries has a prefix of "Email: ", which I did in the Indesign Template. This obviously inserts the text Email: before the email address. Most cells have been filled with data, but I still have a few remaining that are blank. I was wondering if there is a way to search the entire document for "Email:" and remove those cells. I need to clear that I do not remove an active cell as in "Email: name@company.com.au".


      Here's an example of what I mean:

      Any help appreciated. Any links I can review would be great to.

      Thanks in advance.
