I just want to keep in a clean worksheet the record with the "oldest date", in this case, the first line.

Is that possible in EXCEL 2000?
I believe you are looking for the Min() function:

MIN(number1,number2, ...)

Number1, number2,... are 1 to 30 numbers for which you want to find the minimum value.

You can specify arguments that are numbers, empty cells, logical values, or text representations of numbers. Arguments that are error values or text that cannot be translated into numbers cause errors.
If an argument is an array or reference, only numbers in that array or reference are used. Empty cells, logical values, or text in the array or reference are ignored. If logical values and text should not be ignored, use MINA instead.
If the arguments contain no numbers, MIN returns 0.


If A1:A5 contains the numbers 10, 7, 9, 27, and 2, then:

MIN(A1:A5) equals 2

MIN(A1:A5, 0) equals 0
