Clear Contents Of All Unlocked Cells (many Are Merged Cells

May 28, 2009

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 wish to copy a merged cell (3 cells) based on if only 1 of 3 cells to the right contain "X". if the top cell does not contain "X" than the merged cell is not copied. Also, is therea more elegant to copy 3 columns at a time rather than do one at a time as my code shows:

Conditional Clear Contents Of Cells

Oct 10, 2008

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.

Clear Contents Of Cells In A Range, LEN=0

Dec 23, 2009

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.

Clear Contents & Change Color Of Cells

Nov 3, 2006

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).

Attached is a sample of the problem.

Protecting Formulas In Cells From Clear Contents Command

Sep 19, 2007

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?

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 Contents Of Cells Based On Data Validation Selection

Apr 13, 2012

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.

Retain Formulas In A Few Cells In A One Worksheet So They Are Not Cleared By "clear Contents" Without Using Protect Sheet

Apr 8, 2008

i have a worksheet which is a form which feeds into another worksheet which acts as a database. i have a button which clears the form based on code which is essentially "clear contents".

the problem is i have a few cells where i would like to retain the formulas. i tried to do this with custom in validation but this did not work. i also tried to enter the code directly into the worksheet but this didnt work either (my skills are limited..). i am avoiding using protect sheet bc that in turn will affect many of my other buttons. is there something i am overlooking?

Deleting Content Of Unlocked Cells?

Mar 21, 2014

I have a spreadsheet that has mostly locked cells but randomly placed unlocked cells.

The sheet is completed, often saved and printed. We then go back into it and use it for another customer calculation and need to ensure all previous entries are removed. With the locked cells you can't simply highlight an area to clear so I am wondering if there is a way to clear the unlocked cells in one step other than entering on each on to clear.

Would there be any way that if we cleared the first cell the others would clear?

I found the below macro on the web but it will select all the unprotected cells in the worksheet. I guess this one can easily be adjusted to only select the cells in a range, but I do not know how to do this.

Code:

When Protecting Workbook With Pw, Unlocked Cells Are Still Locked

Dec 16, 2009

I have had a workbook that has 2 sheets.

When I protect the main sheet with a password, the unlocked cells are also locked.

When I move my cursor over any cells, it has the pointed finger as though it has a macro over it, which it doesn't.

When I click on any cell, the screen flashes and a large part of the screen momentarily it looks like a selected area.

I also am using Freeze Panes. Removed the Freeze and still no good.

If I use the horizontal scroll bar and click the right arrow 3 times, they become unlocked.

If I move the screen 3 clicks to the left, it re-locks all of the unlocked cells.

Quasi Protection - Can't Change Unlocked Cells Value

Feb 19, 2012

I want to utilise an artificial protection by keeping a cells value constant even though it can be selected, deleted, edited etc.

Is this possible? I want to make a sheet where the cursor isnt visible except on certain sets of 4 cells.

My method being leave the 4 cell sets unlocked and lock everything else and then protect the sheet.

This means only the 4 cell sets are selectable/editable but I only want them to be selected (as this triggers events) but I dont want their values to be changeable. The values will always be 0,1,2,3

When Protect A Worksheet Then Only UNLOCKED Select CELLS

Oct 5, 2006

Ok I've spent over 2 hours reading MANY peoples issues with this "BUG". Back in 2003 was the earliest... no one has an answer that works.

When you protect a worksheet and only have UNLOCKED CELLS selected...somehow through loading and unloading the file... you can select locked cells....
I can not find a pattern but many people have had this issue all with no concrete answers.

Just by loading and saving, exit and loading and saving, exit and loading.... i can now select locked cells that I previously couldn't. (I can't do anything as it's still protected...) It's a pain because it wrecks my tab flow.

Clearing Unlocked Cells On A Protected Worksheet

Dec 6, 2007

I have a workbook with a series of sheets that have tables for entering data. The table row and column labels and formulas in certain cells of each sheet are locked and some sheets are hidden.

When opening the file I want to clear all cell contents (interior color, comments, data, etc) in all the unlocked cells on each sheet that is not hidden.

I tried protecting the sheets first so only the unlocked cells would be accessible, but when I run the code below I get an error saying that the clear contents etc. cannot be performed because the sheet is protected. If it is not protected, everything gets wiped out.

How can I keep the locked stuff but clear the unlocked cells?

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
If ws.Visible = xlSheetVisible Then

ws.Protect Password:="aaa" 'Protect each sheet
ws.Cells.ClearContents 'clear content of any unprotected cells
ws.Cells.ClearComments 'clear any cell comments
ws.Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = 0 'set background colour to no fill
Active.Cells.Range ("a1") 'make the active cell the top left

End If
