Below is my initial code that can't get past the first line.
if right(cells(2,i),4) = "D_MA" then ..... ?
I'm trying to clear the contents of all data in each column that has the text conaining "D_MA" in that columns row 2. For instance, if cell F2 has 30D_MA, I want the macro to clear all contents in Column "F" -- but to do this for all columns that contain "D_MA" in row 2.
I have created a worksheet with many calculations based on user input into several unlocked cells. I would like to create a cell that when selected, would clear the contents of this group of unlocked cells.
I'm trying to create macro that will clear the contents of the cells in the 4 columns to the left of a cell that = 0 %, as well as the cell that = 0%. For example, if cell F13 = 0 % then the contents of B13:F13 would need to be cleared. The range in which data is being pasted into is B13:F27.
I have created a desk planning spreadsheet in excel. Each week a mailmerge sends out an email to everyone in the office asking them to confirm when they will need a desk in the next week.
As the normal employee doesnt get involved in desk planning I want them simply to state whether they will be in the building or not by entering "GH" (our building) in a cell under each day in the email they get sent.
When the reply comes in we select the cells from the email and then paste them into the desk planning spreadsheet. -----
WHAT I NEED TO DO: Select some cells (must be in the same row - that we have just pasted in). Press a button on the Worksheet labelled "Auto Assign Desk", which does this:- For each cell that contains "GH", replace with the right-most cell to the left of the selection that starts "GH_"... (this is the start of a unique desk reference (GH_1_1, GH_1_2,etc.) -----
This will assign the employee to the desk they were sat at last, when they are in the office next week.
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 have a dropdown list in the range E17:E91 containing a list, and two of the values in the list are "DI" and "LTC". What I need to happen is if either of these are selected, the corresponding cell in column F needs to have it's contents cleared. Ex. if in E17 the value is ever either DI or LTC, cell F17 gets contents cleared. if column E contains ANYTHING ELSE, nothing happens. That's all, I've taken care of conditional formatting and data validation already. So even if data is pasted in the worksheet into column E it needs to recognize that and always act in real time.
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.
how to clear contents and change colour index of cells.
This is for a booking system. The current VB codes allows bookings to be made by entering a reference number, dates of bookings and room type and bed type. When the VB codes are executed, the cells corresponding to the details entered earlier, would fill the booking table with the reference number and change the colour fill (e.g. yellow) to indicate that the slots are booked. Please refer to attached sample.
However, I do not know how to delete the booking. I would like to assign a cell for user to enter the reference number that needs to be deleted. So when the reference number is entered into that cell, user could execute a function which will clear the contents and change the colour index to none for that particular booking with that reference number(s).
I am looking for a code that will clear all of my unlocked cell in sheet 1. That is not a problem but since many of the cells are merged I know it keeps throwing me an error saying cannot change contents of merged cells or something like that. Does anyone know how to get around this without unmerging the cells. I saw a code to unmerge all of the cells on a sheet but I really don't want to do this as I already have worked around most of my problems with the merged cells.
I have a worksheet from which I regularly clear all contents by selecting all the rows and selecting 'Clear Contents' from the right button menu. However, I now have added a formula in Col Y that I want to protect. I know I could select all columns up thru X, but that would clear the R1 headers, so I want to avoid doing that. I can always work around, but I'm curious, is there a way to clear only values and thus protect the formulas when using the Clear Contents command?
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.
I am trying to find something that would allow me to have a spreadsheet clear the contents of a certain cell based on the selection made from a data validation list which resides on the same row. This can best be described with an example.
The user selects anything but " " or "none" from the validation list, which for this example resides in C5, would trigger code to clear the contents, if any, in AA5. If " " or "none" is chosen the value remains.
This capability should be available for each row through 100.
I have written this code to clear the contents of certain cells, lock the content of others and protect the sheet again it works on sheet1 but not on sheet 7. This is suppose to happen when the Print button on my sheet is clicked.
Is it possible using vba code to clear a specific cell's contents? I have a workbook that has text boxes that need the linked cell cleared when the workbook opens so the user can start fresh with empty text box's.
I have a spreadsheet with data to row 5000. I have column Y that has an "X" in it. I would like some VBA code to look at each row up to 5000, in column Y for the "X". If it is there, clear the cell contents on the current row in columns T, U, and V.
I've tried modifying some existing code (excluding the Y column range of 5000) but keep getting a "Compile error: Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignments". How do I set the 5000 limit and get this code back on track?
Sub RemoveBankDelay() n = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Y:Y"), "X") For i = 1 To n
I'm trying to clear cell contents based on a defined name given to a set of various cells in my worksheet. The cells are not continuous, but since they're given that defined name, I don't think it matters.
The defined name is listed as "CommentsFields". The worksheet name is listed as "QPRForm_V6"
I found a similar thread, but cannot get it to work with what I'm looking for. I'm relatively new to writing VBA/macros, so I'm not sure what to do.
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..
Been racking brain, searching through the forum here, and my Excel 2003 Bible all day trying to figure out this problem to no avail. I would like to clear the contents of any cell in a given range if the cell immediately to the right of is formatted as bold.
