Put this code in the WorkSheet module of the page you want it to work on.
Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
    
    FinalRow = Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
    For x = FinalRow To 1 Step -1
        If Cells(x, "A").Value = "x" Then
            Rows(x).Delete Shift:=xlUp
        End If
    Next x

End Sub
Right click the sheet tab you want to have the code act on.
Choose "View Code"
Paste the code in the panel that opens, then close VBA editor.
