This deletes the SOUTHEAST entries:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

i = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For r = 2 To i - 1
If Cells(r, 1).Value <> "SOUTHEAST" Then Cells(r, 1).Value = "deleted"
Next

End Sub

i = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

For r = 2 To i - 1

This deletes the **ENTIRE** row :

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

i = ActiveSheet.Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For r = i - 1 To 2 Step -1
If Cells(r, 1).Value <> "SOUTHEAST" Then Rows(r).Delete
Next

Thanks, but it should delete all regions except SOUTHEAST, I ran your code, but it doesn't delete the row, it puts deleted in the cell, instead, it's a good start.

>>it doesn't delete the row
To delete the row take a look at the sample 3 and 4.
