VBA to Update status Column based on recent date

Last Modified: 2017-04-23
Hello , I need your help please

I have very large database file about 100000 rows and 20 column , sample example as follow

Column A( Name)       Column B( Date)      Column C ( Status)
15600-DP-C-01452      4/10/2017      Superseded
15600-DP-C-01452      5/11/2017      Current
15600-DP-C-01452      1/25/2017      Superseded
15600-DP-C-01452      2/28/2017      Superseded
15600-DP-C-02345      3/07/2017      Superseded
15600-DP-C-02345      1/24/2017      Superseded
15600-DP-C-02345      1/12/2017      Superseded
15600-DP-C-02345      4/13/2017      Current

I need to have VBA code to look up the value in Column A and then search for the most recent date in Column B corresponding to this value , and then add the work “ current “ in the adjacent cell for this date and “ superseded” to the old date

Hope my request is clear
