Run_Second()
If MsgBox("Performing Filtering Step #2", vbOKCancel) = vbOK Then
Dim rgTest As Range
Dim lgLastRow As Long

Set rgTest = Range("a1").CurrentRegion 'CHANGE START OF RANGE TO SUIT
Let lgLastRow = rgTest.Cells(rgTest.Count).Row

'SORT RANGE
rgTest.Sort key1:=rgTest.Cells(2), order1:=xlAscending, key2:=rgTest.Cells(9), order2:=xlDescending, header:=xlGuess

'DELETE ROWS
Do Until lgLastRow = 2 'CHANGE TO 2 IF RANGE INCLUDES HEADER ROW
If rgTest.Cells(lgLastRow, 2) = rgTest.Cells(lgLastRow - 1, 2) Then
If rgTest.Cells(lgLastRow, 10).Value = "" Then
If rgTest.Cells(lgLastRow, 9) <= rgTest.Cells(lgLastRow - 1, 9) Then
Intersect(rgTest, Rows(lgLastRow)).ClearContents
End If
End If
End If
Let lgLastRow = lgLastRow - 1
Loop

'RESORT RANGE TO REMOVE BLANKS
rgTest.Sort key1:=rgTest.Cells(2), order1:=xlAscending, key2:=rgTest.Cells(10), order2:=xlDescending, header:=xlGuess
Else
End If
End Sub

Here is a sample of what the problem is:

My Spreadsheet starts off looking like this (Row's are like this I cut out N/A stuff)
| 2 | 3 | 9 | 10 |


GD10A-P-741-2 5B 5 B
GD10A-P-741-2 6 6
GD10A-P-741-2 7A 7 A

And after this macro it ends up

GD10A-P-741-2 5B 5 B
GD10A-P-741-2 7A 7 A


But I want it to keep the 6
 

Excel Facts

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

What are you actually trying to delete?

Could you post a larger example?

And also a before and after showing what you want.

Here is part of the original The 5 And the A are thrown into seperate columns by a formula

GD10A-P-741-2 5A 5 A
GD10A-P-741-2 5B 5 B
GD10A-P-741-2 6 6
GD10A-P-741-2 7A 7 A
GD10A-P-741-2 8B 8 B
GD10A-P-741-2 8C 8 C
XX10Z-O-745-9 5 5
XX10Z-O-745-9 6 6
XX10Z-O-745-9 7 7
XX10Z-O-745-9 7 7




After my first macro it will end up as

GD10A-P-741-2 5B 5 B
GD10A-P-741-2 6 6
GD10A-P-741-2 7A 7 A
GD10A-P-741-2 8C 8 C
XX10Z-O-745-9 5 5
XX10Z-O-745-9 6 6
XX10Z-O-745-9 7 7
XX10Z-O-745-9 7 7



But now after THIS one I Get

GD10A-P-741-2 5B 5 B
GD10A-P-741-2 7A 7 A
GD10A-P-741-2 8C 8 C
XX10Z-O-745-9 7 7


But I want
GD10A-P-741-2 5B 5 B
GD10A-P-741-2 6 6
GD10A-P-741-2 7A 7 A
GD10A-P-741-2 8C 8 C
XX10Z-O-745-9 7 7
