If it was roughed at 10" there may be a good reason for it. Most of the time, there was a structual "thing" in the way.
You will need to remove some flooring or some ceiling below to get at enough of the pipe to work with.
Some offsets will move it enough.
Many toilets will work with a 11.25" rough-in.

: I've recently removed my (2nd story) bathroom floor. The soil pipe (black PVC) is 10" from the wall and I'd like to install an offset flange to accomodate the toilet I've purchased and get the plumbing to "standard." Any advice on:
: 1)removing the old flange (which is jointed to the soil pipe below the subfloor)
: 2)installing the offset flange (I presume it needs to be level with the finished floor)

If you check the bottom of the new toilet, you will see how much the flange can stick up.
