HI,

pls try

Sub macro()
lstRow = Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For Idx = lstRow To 1 Step -1 ' change 1 to the first row with dates
    If Cells(Idx, 1) < Application.WorksheetFunction.WorkDay(Date, -1) Then
        Cells(Idx, 1).EntireRow.Delete
    End If
Next
End Sub

Open in new window
