I have a worksheet with a number of rows that will vary. I need a routine to delete all rows that do not have either an 11 or a 45 in the first cell of the row. The routine needs to stop when it gets to a blank row.

This is my dataset before running your code:

3      3/1/2004      CV-0000059-11
3      3/1/2004      CV-0000059-11
3      3/1/2004      CV-0000060-11
11      11/1/2001      CV-0000107-11
11      11/1/2001      CV-0000108-11
11      11/1/2001      CV-0000109-11
11      11/1/2001      LT-0000098-11
43      43-3-02      LT-0000071-11
43      43-3-03      CV-0000043-11
43      43-3-03      CV-0000044-11
43      43-3-03      CV-0000045-11
43      43-3-03      CV-0000047-11
43      43-3-03      CV-0000047-11
45      45-1-05      LT-0000088-11
45      45-1-05      LT-0000089-11
45      45-1-05      LT-0000090-11
45      45-1-05      LT-0000090-11


This is the remaining data after I run it:

11      11/1/2001      CV-0000107-11
11      11/1/2001      CV-0000108-11
11      11/1/2001      CV-0000109-11
