I'm sorry your question isn't clear please rephrase it.

Do you want to delete the rows only if all cells in the row are blank or also if only one of them is blank?

Sub DeleteBlankRows1()

'Deletes the entire row within the selection if the ENTIRE row contains no data.

    Dim rng As Range
    Dim i As Long

    Set rng = Range("A2:G15000")

    With Application
        .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
        .ScreenUpdating = False

        For i = rng.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
            If WorksheetFunction.CountA(rng.Rows(i)) = 0 Then
                rng.Rows(i).EntireRow.Delete
            End If
        Next i

        .Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
        .ScreenUpdating = True
    End With

End Sub

Sub DeleteBlankRows2()

    'Deletes the entire row within the range if SOME of the cells within the range contain no data

    Dim rng As Range
    
    Set rng = Range("A2:G15000")
    On Error Resume Next
    rng.EntireRow.SpecialCells(xlBlanks).EntireRow.Delete
    On Error GoTo 0

End Sub
