I have written code to delete the row containing "Company Name" from row 2 onwards in Col A

Code:
Sub Del_Unwanted()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long

With Sheets(1)
For i = LR To 2 Step -1
LR = .Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
If .Range("A" & i).Value = "Company Name" Then
.Range("A" & i).EntireRow.Delete

Next i
End With
End Sub


when running the code, I get a "compile error: Next without for"


it would be appreciated if someone could kindly assist me

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

You're missing an End If before the Next i line

when running the code on sheet (1) being "data import", the row containing "company name"in Col a from row 2 is not being deleted


Code:
 Sub Del_Unwanted_DataImport()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long

With Sheets(1)
For i = LR To 1 Step -1
LR = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
If .Range("A" & i).Value = "Company Name" Then
.Range("A" & i).EntireRow.Delete
End If
Next i
End With
End Sub

it would be appreciated if you could kindly amend my code

You need to calculate the last row before you start the loop, otherwise LR is 0, so the loop never does anything.
