I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is a small VBA procedure that will do what you wanted for that data set.

Sub DeleteMatchingRows()
    ' Define local variable
    Dim shtMain As Worksheet
    Dim shtData As Worksheet
    Dim rngMain As Range
    Dim rngData As Range
    Dim lngRow As Long

    ' Turn off screen updating
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False

    ' Work with Sheet1 and Sheet2
    Set shtMain = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
    Set shtData = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(2)
    ' Key values found in first column, starting at first row
    Set rngMain = shtMain.Range(shtMain.Cells(1, 1), shtMain.Cells(shtMain.Cells(shtMain.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row, 1))
    Set rngData = shtData.Range(shtData.Cells(1, 1), shtData.Cells(shtData.Cells(shtData.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row, 1))

    ' Check value from first sheet against second, delete row if match found
    For lngRow = rngMain.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
        If Not IsError(Application.VLookup(rngMain.Cells(lngRow, 1), rngData, 1, False)) Then
        End If

    ' Turn on screen updating
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
