Excel/Altering VBA

Question
Hi Tom

I would like to alter this piece of VBA.  It currently deletes the rows on sheets 2 to 10 depending on the content in sheet 1.

Could you alter it so that the rows on sheets 2 to 25 are deleted based on the contents of sheet 1?

Thanks in advance

Chris

Sub abc()
Dim sh As Worksheet, sh1 As Worksheet
Dim r As Range, lastrow As Long, i As Long, j As Long
Set sh = Worksheets("Sheet1")
Set r = sh.Range("A2", sh.Cells(sh.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp))
For i = 2 To 10
Set sh1 = Worksheets("Sheet" & i)
lastrow = sh1.Cells(sh1.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
For j = lastrow To 2 Step -1
  If Application.CountIf(r, sh1.Cells(j, "A").Value) = 0 Then
    sh1.Rows(j).EntireRow.Delete
  End If
Next j
Next i

Answer
Christopher Mitchell,


for i = 2 to 10  

is where it loops so you would change that to


for i = 2 to 25

Sub abc()
Dim sh As Worksheet, sh1 As Worksheet
Dim r As Range, lastrow As Long, i As Long, j As Long
Set sh = Worksheets("Sheet1")
Set r = sh.Range("A2", sh.Cells(sh.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp))
For i = 2 To 25
Set sh1 = Worksheets("Sheet" & i)
lastrow = sh1.Cells(sh1.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
For j = lastrow To 2 Step -1
 If Application.CountIf(r, sh1.Cells(j, "A").Value) = 0 Then
   sh1.Rows(j).EntireRow.Delete
 End If
Next j
Next i

End Sub


does that answer the question?  (only need to replay with clarification if I didn't answer the question).
