Need help with tricky query

I have a query that when run will replace all except one duplicate in my table column with pound signs "####".
That is exactly what I want. (My query is displayed at the very bottom of this post)

So for example here is my table data :

888659000  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:57.407
666659700  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:58.408
666659700  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:59.409

After I run my query I am left with this table data, which is correct.

888659000  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:57.407 -- Just one IAAE record is left, which is what I want
666659700  ####  2014-12-07 08:20:58.408
666659700  ####  2014-12-07 08:20:59.409

Now the query will no longer work if the records have duplicate dates. For example look at the data below. The first two records has the same date, so the query no longer works.
I need help fixing the query.

888659000  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:57.407
666659700  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:57.407
666659700  IAAE  2014-12-07 08:20:59.409

Here is the sql query :

update t
 set code = 'I###'
 from Goop t
 where t.DateEntered > ( select min(x.DateEntered) from Goop x  WHERE Code = 'IAAE') AND Code = 'IAAE'

Can someone help fix the query, so that only one IAAE records remains? I have attached the database table scripted. Please see attachement.

this should do:
with data as (
  select snn ,code , DateEntered 
 ,  row_number() over ( partition by code order by dateentered ) rn
  from yourtable
  where code = 'IAAE'
)
update data 
   set code = '####'
where rn > 1

Maybe something like:

UPDATE Goop
 SET Code = '####'
WHERE
 Code = 'IAAE' AND
 SSN <> (SELECT TOP 1 SSN FROM Goop WHERE Code = 'IAAE' ORDER BY DateEntered);
