Can an expert provide me with VBA code that will delete the entire row if it finds the number 1 in column ‘O’ [must be a singular 1 not 21, 31 etc]

Many thanks in advance

Try this.

Dim I As Long

    For I = Range("O" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row Step -1
        If Cells(I, "O").Value = 1 Then
            Rows(I).EntireRow.Delete
        End If
    Next I

Here
Sub Demo()
    Dim lngLastRow As Long
    Dim lngCurrentRow As Long

    With ActiveSheet
        lngLastRow = Range("O" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
        For lngCurrentRow = lngLastRow To 1 Step -1
            With .Cells(lngCurrentRow, "O")
                If Not IsError(.Value) Then
                    If .Value = "1" Then .EntireRow.Delete
                End If
            End With
        Next lngCurrentRow
    End With
End Sub

Hi Norie

this row gives me a syntax error

For I = Range("O" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row Step -1

Too early in the morning.:)

This is how it should read.
Dim I As Long

    For I = Range("O" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
        If Cells(I, "O").Value = 1 Then
            Rows(I).EntireRow.Delete
        End If
    Next I
