Clear Non-contiguous Cells

Jul 23, 2007

Am looking for routine that can be used to delete the contents of cells from multiple, non-contiguous cells throughout a single worksheet. I would like to place a "button" or some form of toggle-switch on the worksheet that will clear all entries at once. I see a thread "Macro Deleting Wrong Cells" that references a VBA sub-routine called "DelCells". I happen to be running Excel 2007 and am still adjusting to the new menu "structure" :-)

Excel 2010 :: Clear Contents Of A Range Of Contiguous Cells

Jun 4, 2013

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.

Clear Non-Contiguous Ranges

Feb 28, 2008

I'm getting an error on Range("AB6:AS12,..."). The error is: "1004 Runtime error, Method 'Range' of object '_Global' failed". My code should copy the values from place A to B. Then clear the content of B. Heres my code:

Sub Ny_uke()
' copy cells
Range("B21:K50").Value = Range("AX21:BG50").Value
Range("B54:K83").Value = Range("AX54:BG83").Value
Range("B87:K116").Value = Range("AX87:BG116").Value
Range("B120:K149").Value = Range("AX120:BG149").Value
Range("B153:K182").Value = Range("AX153:BG182").Value
Range("B186:K215").Value = Range("AX186:BG215").Value
Range("B219:K248").Value = Range("AX219:BG248").Value
' clear content of cells
End Sub

When the error occurs I can press 'Debug' and continue the script whiteout changing the code and the code will continue without any errors. If I place the line 'Range("...")' on top of the script no error occurs. I I split the 'Range("...").Clear' into several Range("AB6:AS12").Clear the problem solves, but this produces several unwanted lines of code.

Grouping Contiguous List Into Non-Contiguous Groups

Sep 9, 2006

I would like to be able to count the amount of entries in column C and depending on the amount group them in either groups of 3 or 4, all names would be if there are 14 names in the list they would need to be grouped in to two groups of 4 and two groups of 3, if there were 19 then 4 groups of 4 and 1 group of 3 etc to a maximum 50 people, the results could appearon a seperate worksheet say pasted on to the worksheet starting with the groups of 3 (so paste a group of 3 then skip 3 rows then paste groups of 4 skip 2 rows, the row skipping is to allow seperation and manual entry of extra data). There will never be groups of 5 or more and never less than 3

Colouring Non-contiguous Cells With VBA

Dec 4, 2012

I have a rather large database that I'm trying to automate colours in, based on data that is inserted into Column 'D'. I've used the following code (with some success), but it colours columns that I don't want to colour:

Sub KeyCellsChanged()
Dim Cell As Object
For Each Cell In Range("D1:D5000")


That works fine - but the problem I have is that I only want to colour columns A:N, Q, T, V, AB:AE, etc. (random columns and not always together). I have already tried to replace parts (as follows), but get all sorts of errors (in particular Run-time error 1004):

If Cell = "Rabbit" Then
Cell.Range("A:N,Q, T, V, AB:AE").Interior.ColorIndex = 42

Is there someway that a line of code can determin which cells to colour in the row, or alternatively code that will colour the columns a specific colour and make them stay that colour when the first code above is used?

Paste Into Non-Contiguous Cells

Dec 18, 2012

Copying and pasting into non-contiguous cells.

I want to be able to filter my data set, so for example I can filter column A for the value Berkshire, I then want to be able to select all the Berkshire's in Column A (not a problem, simply select them and copy), but I then need to be able to paste them into column B, so they appear in exactly the same rows as they do in Column A, but this doesn't work, it pastes them into hidden cells as well.

I've tried the Alt + ; (Visible Cells Only) option, followed by copy and paste and this makes no difference.

I have over 20,000 rows of data to filter, then copy the relevant cells and move to the same row in another column and currently I'm having to move the cells one by one which is ludicrous.

Specify Non-Contiguous Cells With Variable Addresses

Nov 17, 2012

Excel VBA. I have a problem which is frustrating me almost beyond measure, but I am convinced that the answer is a simple one.

sub a() copies the values of 3 non-contiguous cells and pastes them as contiguous cells. This is simple as the cell addresses to be copied are absolute.

Sub a()
Dim x As Integer
x = 6
Cells(x, "H").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
End Sub

Sub b() copies a range of contiguous cells, including empty cells, and pastes them as contiguous cells, including empty cells. This is simple because I have specified a "range" of cells with variable addresses.

Sub b()
Dim x As Integer
Dim y As Long
x = 6
y = 1
Range("A" & y & ":E" & y).Copy
Cells(x, "H").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
End Sub

However, what I really want to do is copy 3 non-contiguous cells with variable addresses similar to sub b (ie. 'A' & y, 'C' & y, 'E' & y) and paste them as contiguous cells (without empty cells) as in sub a ().

What is the correct way to specify the cells to be copied?

Find Highest Value In Non-contiguous Cells..

Oct 17, 2009

I have a cricket excel sheet that contains batsmans scores over a season. These scores are kept in non-contiguous cells for each game (ie. D5, J5, P5, V5 etc..) In the cell next to the score is an option for the user to enter an '*' to denote a not out score (these are in E5, K5, Q5, W5 etc.)

I can sort out a formula to find the highest score (from D5, J5, P5, V5) and place this high score in a cell elsewhere - but what I really need to do is to check if the high score is not out by looking to see if there is an asterisk in the adjacent cell, and then place the score AND asterisk in another cell.

Selecting Non-Contiguous Cells Containing Data In A Column

I have a column that has mostly empty cells. I want to select only the ones that have data so I can perform an operation on all of them. Empty cells must be excluded from selection. I do not know where the bottom of the data is.

The solution needs to be in VBA where it is part of a larger macro affecting the user's worksheet.

Contiguous Vs. Noncontiguous Cells Used In A Function Call From VBA

Aug 2, 2006

I am working with several columns of data, and each column's range is stored in a range array. My program needs to use a specififc combination of the columns as the second argument sent to the regress function. In certain cases, the columns I am referencing are not contiguous, so the function won't work. Here's an example:

Suppose we're working with 3 independent variables (a simple case) whose data is stored in three contiguous columns named x1, x2, and x3. The program I've written will call the regress function 6 times: once using x1, once using x2, once using x3, once using the union of x1 and x2, once using the union of x1 and x3, once using the union of x2 and x3, and once using the union of x1, x2, and x3. Suppose the range for x1 is d5:d18, the range for x2 is e5:e18, and the range for x3 is f5:f18. Also, each union of ranges is stored as one element in an array called Combos, which is sent to the regress function.

The regress function returns an error when prompted to calculate regression stats for columns x1 and x3 because they aren't contiguous. I need to know if there is some sort of way around this. write a procedure that will detect if the ranges being input to the regress function are contiguous, and if they are not, copy them to a new worksheet so they will be contiguous and then send the new range references to the regress function for calculation purposes? Is there an easier way around this issue? If I can't get this to work, my entire program is wasted.

Average Non-contiguous Cells & Exclude Zeros

Oct 10, 2007

I would like to average a non-continuous range of cells while also excluding all zeros.

I am averaging hours worked and the hours are found in cells:

B2, D2, F2, H2, J2, L2, N2

Some of these cells contain zeros at this time and I do not what to include the zeros in the average.

I have found formulas that would work but they are all with continuous cell ranges.

Check For Empty Cells In Non Contiguous Range

Aug 13, 2008

The application reads in a file, whcih can have various formats. To check which format it's in, I plan to look for certain empty fields/ cells. I can successfully detect a group of empty cells by explicitly testing each one, but when I put them all in a range and test that, the check fails. So far I've reduced the problem to the following example code.

Sub check_clear()
If IsEmpty(Range("a1")) Then
Range("g2") = "A1 empty"
End If
If IsEmpty(Range("b1")) Then
Range("g3") = "B1 empty"
End If
If IsEmpty(Range("c1")) Then
Range("g4") = "C1 empty"
End If
If IsEmpty(Range("d1")) Then
Range("g5") = "D1 empty"
End If..............

The result is that each individual cell check results in the relevant "XX empty" message. However, the test that the range of multiple cells is empty never produces a result. I'd really like to understand the underlying reason - as well as find out how to perform an isEmpty test on a range. I'm looking more for guidance and insight than a canned solution

Copy Non-contiguous Cells And Varying Data Types

Nov 4, 2013

I have a non-contiguous range of cells that contains Values, Formulas, Text or Dates. In some cases a field containing a value could instead contain a formula depending on who is filling out the form and/or what information is known. For example, a cell might contain a value, i.e. Utilities, and I might either know the total ($76,310), or I might need to perform a calculation right in the cell to obtain the total (=54236+9587+12487).

My goal is to be able to copy the information contained in this non-contiguous range to the right some 52 columns (this is a safe temporary storage location) and then be able to copy it back should I need to.

One other problem may be that the source cell might be a merged cell.

Since I cannot determine whether the information is going to be a value or a formula, and I have some text and date formats to copy as well, is there some way to copy this range and keep the data regardless of format?

My Range might look like: (F4, C5, D6:D7, D9, D13:D15, D17:D18, D22:D25, D27:D30)

F4 is a date field, C5 is a merged cell holding text, D6 is the Utilities field described above. The other fields are all formatted as dollars or percentages.

Dynamic Print Ranges With Multiple Non-contiguous Cells?

Jan 24, 2012

I have a worksheet that has a few ranges and I need a printarea statement that looks like this:

ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$F$26,$G$1:$L$9,$M$1:$P$16,$Q$1:$S$7"

The above works, but each time I generate this worksheet, the ranges for the last row of each area can be dynamic.

So, I tried something like this:

Sub setPrtArea()
'set the print area
lr1 = Range("F65536").End(xlUp).Row
rngA = Range("$A$1:$F$" & lr1)
lr2 = Range("L65536").End(xlUp).Row
rngB = Range("$G$1:$L$" & lr2)
lr3 = Range("P65536").End(xlUp).Row
rngC = Range("$M$1:$P$" & lr3)
lr4 = Range("S65536").End(xlUp).Row
rngD = Range("$Q$1:$S$" & lr4)
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = rngA & "," & rngB & "," & rngC & "," & rngD

But, it fails. I have looked through many topics on this subject, but nothing seems to fit my scenario. This will pretty much complete my current project if I get this figured out and can export these print areas to pdf without a bunch of blank pages as I get now with no print area set.
