I have a range variable named data I want to clear all the data in the 3rd column in the range variable I know how to reference a single location in the range variable but not a whole column. see example code below
I'm using a macro to copy the results of a formula and paste the values only on another sheet. The result includes lots of "blank" rows. I have another macro to get rid of the empty rows and move the information up.
It's not working because the "blank" rows aren't empty. Even though I paste values only, experimentation shows that the cells that appear blank return a false to the ISBLANK test with a length of 0.
So now I think I need a macro to run after the pastespecial command to look for cells within a range with a length of zero and delete the contents of those cells, but leave alone anything with a length of >0.
I am brand new to the idea of using VBA, but I have successfully cobbled together some stuff and can usually modify things to work.
It seems I need to maybe use some sort of IF statement along with a LEN and ClearContents. I don't want to delete the blank cells, just make them truly empty so that all of my actual data stays where it should, and my delete empty rows macro works correctly.
I did a search and see some info on clearing contents of columns or rows, or clearing contents based on the content of other columns or rows, but I'm unsure of how to tell it to search each cell within a range and clear the contents of 0-length cells to make them truly empty.
I am filtering column S in a sheet to show all rows with a date after the end of the previous month - i.e. >= 01/01/07. What i want to do is clear the contents of those visible cells in column S. I tried the code below (got it on this site) but it works its way up from the bottom of the sheet until it finds the first visible row and then clears the contents of column S in each row above it, whether it is visible or not.
Sheets("Planning").Select With Range("e2:C2") .AutoFilter field:=5, Criteria1:="<=" & Sheets("Filtered Statistics").Range("c3") .AutoFilter field:=19, Criteria1:=">=" & Sheets("Filtered Statistics").Range("d3") For i = Range("s65536").End(xlUp).Row To 3 Step -1 If InStr(1, ">=" & Sheets("Filtered Statistics").Range("d3"), Cells(i, 19).Value) = 0 Then Cells(i, 19).ClearContents End If Next i .AutoFilter field:=19 End With
I am trying to change this code to clear the contents of the last column of my "Master sheet". I am having trouble indexing to the last column, however. I found this code online but it looks much more complicated than it needs to be. Is there any way to do this easier/change this code to fit my needs?
Right now, the letter of the column I want to delete pops up in a message box, but I'm not sure where to go from there.
I want to have users fill out. While it is possible to have it Read Only so that they always SaveAs I would rather put in a macro to clear the user input fields. I have done this in Excel 2003 and when I try using the same techniques in 2007 I get an Error 400.
I have all the cells (some are merged cells) in a named range and have the following code for clearing them.
Is is possible to clear the contents of a cell range if a message box appears stating an error. I have tried the following code but the logic doesn't actually work and am struggling to achieve what I am trying to do.
My code so far is as follows:
If ActiveSheet.Range("F84") > 0 And ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("PES").Range("D24") = 0 Then _ MsgBox "Your Entitlement is currently 0", vbCritical, "Error" ActiveSheet.Range("K84:T84").ClearContents
The message box appears fine if the IF statement is true but if IF statement is false, the cell range of K84 to T84 on the current sheet is still cleared..
There is data(numerical) or blanks in each of the cells in the range H32:O37
I want to clear the contents if they are a duplicate of the previous line.
Looking for a macro hopefully. Found many to delete the whole row but just the specific range based upon the duplicate criteria..As there is data surronding that area do not want to delete whole row just clear that specifc area.
H32:O32 clear contents if same as H31:O31 if any valuse are different then stays the same H33:O33 clear contents if same as H32:O32 if any valuse are different then stays the same H34:O34 clear contents if same as H33:O33 if any valuse are different then stays the same H35:O35 clear contents if same as H34:O34 if any valuse are different then stays the same H36:O36 clear contents if same as H35:O35 if any valuse are different then stays the same H37:O37 clear contents if same as H36:O36 if any valuse are different then stays the same
I need to clear the contents of a columns G and H starting 11th row based on what is there in F column. The macro should check for last non-empty cell in column F starting F11 (assume it finds F30 to be last non-empty cell), then it should clear the contents of G11 to G30, H11 to H30.
I am trying to clear the contents of a range of contiguous cells (containing formula) in Excel 2010 64bit. But it is taking a LONG time (read >30min to clear a range 288 x 100). Originally was doing it in VBA but it was taking too long so I started stepping through the macro and identified that the slow down was occurring on a particular sheet only. So the problem is in Excel....not VBA because it is still very slow when deleting the same range in Excel without using VBA.
I've tried all the usual suspects including: Application.EnableEvents = False (run from the VBA Immediate window when using Excel without VBA), Setting to Example of slow clear contents5.xlsxExample of slow clear contents5.xlsxManual Calculation, Turning off screen updating, deleting all the conditional formatting on the sheet, removing any data validation from the sheet (yes all these at the same time). There are no links to external workbooks. I've even tried in VBA changing from .ClearContents to .Value = vbNullString. All to NO AVAIL! By way of background the file is about 72Mb #.xlsm.
If I try to clear contents of larger ranges on other sheets in the same workbook it is instantaneous. If I copy the problem worksheet off to a new workbook, I can delete the problem range almost instantly. Why deleting a range of cells should take so long! Again to clarify, I am using the terms "delete" and "clear contents" interchangeably, but they both mean "clear contents" (not delete and move up cells). P.S I've also looked into the reported conflict between Excel and Google Desktop Office Add-in (Office Button->Excel Options->Addins->Com Addins and deselect Google Desktop Office Addin) but I didn't have Google Desktop Office Add-in so it isn't that.
In my macro, NextRow is defined as the first empty row in a set of data (NextRow = Range("A1000").End(xlUp).Row + 1). How would I clear the contents of Columns A:H in NextRow in VBA, keeping in mind that NextRow is always different for each worksheet I'm working with?
i need a code that moves down a column and for every empty cell in the column the cell to the left is cleared and then it moves on to the next cell down. the column is not always the same and will start from a selected cell, and the column will contain no more than 5 rows
i am trying to use clearcontents with the below code but i get an error,
With Sheets(1) With .Range("J7") .ClearContents Range("J7:J" & .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row) .Formula = "=H7-I7" .AutoFill Range("J7:J" & .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row) End With End With
I want the function of clear contents to work based on the value of B4. If I run the code with clear content part excel crushes.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Range("B4") = "Basic" Then ''*** B4 is adropdown ***'' ActiveSheet.Unprotect 'Range("B10,F10,H10").ClearContents ''*** if I run this part the excel crushes ***''' Range("B10,F10,H10").Locked = True
I am looking for a way to remove text from a cell if it is 2 characters or less but do nothing if the text is longer than that. Is there a way to do this with either a function or an advanced find?
For more detail, I have a list of middle initials and last names. The cells are either a middle initial by itself like "D." or they are a last name like Jones. I want to go through and delete the cells that have the middle initial and leave the ones with the last name. So if there is a function that will evaluate the cell, and if it is 2 characters or less, then delete the contents. If greater than 3, leave it alone.
I have a range of cell content to be clear (Value only) but no formula in those cell.
The range is populated in cell H106. Example cell if cell H106 = D5:E102 then clear the value value only in cell range D5:E102 if cell C106 = G5:H102 then clear the value value only in cell range G5:H102.
I think I've had enough of using excel generated macro's as an excuse for decent code. I need to turn this:
Small procedure, function, what have you that will continue this pattern until I hit some kind of indicator to tell it to stop. This just clears the contents from 7 rows, hops down 9 rows and does it again.
