You could just sort and delete manually, or with code, if you add a header row (anything will do):
Sub x()

Dim rData As Range

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

With ActiveSheet
    .AutoFilterMode = False
    .Range("A1").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="AP3"
    With .AutoFilter.Range
        On Error Resume Next
        Set rData = .Offset(1).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
        On Error GoTo 0
        If Not rData Is Nothing Then
            rData.EntireRow.Delete
        End If
    End With
    .AutoFilterMode = False
End With

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Open in new window

Hello Stephen mate,

Unfortunately, I couldn't sort and delete manually because of the order and timing are crucial. You're formula appears to have done the trick though. Just checking it out thoroughly now. Will let you know for sure in 15mins.
