I can think of two ways to do this.

1. No VBA. Use columns D and E for the result and hide columns B and C
2. With VBA

Which way do you want to go?

Just thought of a third way.

Use Autofilter and filter the list for NOT MAPPED

Select the data in front of all the displayed rows and clear it

Unfilter the data

With Saqib's suggestion of a formula.

Column D:

=IF($A1="Not mapped","",B1)   copy across to column E and down as far as required.

As suggested then hide columns B & C or copy and paste values from D & E overwriting B & C.  When copying a cell containing a formula resulting in "", the result of the value paste will not be an empty cell but will be '.

If you want the cells to be truly blank, an autofilter will recognise these as blank so you can filter to show only blank and delete them. When a filter is in place you can select the whole range of cells as one block but only visible cells will be affected by any actions taken. If you're going to do an autofilter to correct this, you might as well just do an autofilter in the first place as suggested by Saqib in his second comment.

Maybe should share 50/50 with Saqib. Comment from OP does not state which answer was used.
