Deleting rows of data that are results of Autofilter?

I am looking for a VBA script that is simple and deletes all visible rows in an autofilter.  I already have the filters applied, I just need to delete everything (except the headers).  I find myself needing this more often..  or better yet, have a visible property that would delete visible if true, or delete all hidden if false.. sort of a tool to use when dealing with autofilters.  Hope this makes sense. -R-

ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$Z$65535").Offset(1, 0).SpecialCells _
    (xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete

Open in new window

This will work with your header rows. And you can either adjust the column and row in the second half or do a count for them and use a variable.

I had left the second quote off the first example....
