Besides the above method, you can run the following VBA codes to delete same rows or ranges across multiple worksheet.

Delete same rows across multiple sheets

1. Press Alt + F11 keys simultaneously to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, click Insert > Module. Then copy and paste the following VBA code into the Code window.

VBA code: Delete same rows across multiple sheets In Excel

Sub bleh()
    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    Set xWs = ActiveSheet
    ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Select
    Rows("4:5").Select
    Selection.Delete
    xWs.Select
End Sub

Note: In the VBA code, 4:5 means that the row 4 and 5 will be deleted across multiple worksheets in current workbook. You can change them to your needed row.

3. Press F5 key to run the code, then the specified rows are deleted immediately from all sheets in current workbook.

Delete same ranges across multiple sheets

For deleting same ranges across multiple sheets, you can try the below VBA code.

VBA code: Delete same range across multiple sheets

    If ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Count > 1 Then
      xTxt = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.AddressLocal
    Else
      xTxt = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.AddressLocal
    End If
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox("Please select the range you want to delete across multiple sheets:", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)

    xRg.ClearContents

Hi Ranit Mehta,
I don't quite understand your question. In the post, we provided a piece of VBA code for deleting data in the same range in multiple worksheets. I am not sure if this meets your needs.
The code is as follows:
Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
    Dim xRg As Range
    Dim xTxt As String
    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xWs = ActiveSheet
    If ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Count > 1 Then
      xTxt = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.AddressLocal
    Else
      xTxt = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.AddressLocal
    End If
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox("Please select the range you want to delete across multiple sheets:", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)
    If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    xRg.ClearContents
    ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Select
    ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.FillAcrossSheets xRg, xlFillWithContents
    xWs.Select
End Sub
