Default Deleting rows not equal to specific values


How can I create a macro that deletes rows when a cell is not equal to specific values e.g


If the cells above is not equal to 2,4,5, and 7, then delete rows.

Hope you can help

Here is one primitve way of doing this

Sub DeleteRows()

lmax = ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell) .Row
For i1 = 1 To lmax

 If (Cells(i1, 1).Value <> 2 And Cells(i1, 1).Value <> 4 And Cells(i1, 1).Value <> 5 And Cells(i1, 1).Value <> 7) Then

        i1 = i1 - 1
        lmax = lmax - 1
        If i1 >= lmax Then Exit Sub
 End If
Next i1
End Sub

I have assumed that ur values will be in first column
