Delete rows based on date criteria


I am looking for a macro that delete rows based on date criterias. 

My data table starts in cell A10. And this first column contains a date. And would like to have all rows containg today's date deleted.

The fastest way with a large set of data would be  to use AutoFilter. Try this

Sub deleteFilteredData()
    Dim rDelete    As Range
    Dim lCalc  As Long
    Dim sDelete As String
    With Application
        lCalc = .Calculation
        .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
        .ScreenUpdating = False
        On Error GoTo exit_proc
        ''///Sheet with the data, change the name
        With ActiveSheet
            .AutoFilterMode = False
            ''///Apply the filter, this range of data starts in A1
            .Cells(1, 1).CurrentRegion.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=" & Date
            With .AutoFilter.Range
                On Error Resume Next
                Set rDelete = .Offset(1, 0).Resize(.Rows.Count - 1, 1) _
                On Error GoTo 0
                If Not rDelete Is Nothing Then rDelete.EntireRow.Delete
            End With
            ''///Remove the AutoFilter
            .AutoFilterMode = False
        End With
        .ScreenUpdating = True
        .Calculation = lCalc
    End With
End Sub
