Clearing Unprotected Cells

Jul 19, 2002

I have a spreadsheet that has I have protected. On this sheet I have a button labeled Reset Form. When you click the button it it goes to each Unprotected Cell and deltes the contents. I created this by starting the macro and then tabbing to each and every cell and deleteing the contents I then ended the macro...

Is there a code that I can use for to clear all unprotected cells as opposed to creating the macro manually?

Clear All Unprotected Cells?

Jul 25, 2014

I have a button, and I need a Macro that will cause it to clear all unprotected cells. I think I can figure out how to get it to clear an individual cell, and I suppose I could enter every cell I want cleared individually...but that might take awhile.

Is there a way to set up a Macro that will delete the contents of every unprotected cell? I guess I haven't tried it yet - if I protect the cells, will it not delete those? Also, there is a small image - I don't want that deleted either.

Clearing Cells Containing Specified Words

Apr 29, 2008

I am trying to clear the contents of cells in a very large spread sheet containing certain words. I am running the following macro and it will only do the first part, so it will clear cells containing "deceased" but stops at "esa". There may be any number of other words or text in the cell and I want it to delete cells with "esa" by itself so for ex. not delete cell containing "vanesa". I am very amateur so I am sure this is something simple but I cannot find the answer or figure it out for myself.

Sub DeleteAll()
Dim lCount As Long
Dim rFoundCell As Range
Dim rLookRange As Range
Set rFoundCell = Range("A1")
Set rLookRange = ActiveSheet.UsedRange
For lCount = 1 To WorksheetFunction. CountIf(rLookRange, "*deceased")
Set rFoundCell = rLookRange.Find(What:="deceased", After:=rFoundCell, _
LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, _
SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False)

Clearing Selected Cells On A Form

Oct 15, 2013

I have compiled the following code with bits from here there and everywhere to clear the user entered details on a form. My problem is that I need to retain or reset to "Please Select" the cells with drop down lists.

In list form, I am trying to;

Unprotect the worksheet,
Select the cells with drop down lists and lock them,
Delete the contents of unlocked cells,
Selecting and unlocking the cells with the drop down lists ready for re-use,
Re-protect the worksheet.

(I probably should mention that my "Form" is just a formatted worksheet that looks like a form on the screen and when printed, not any sort of inbuilt Excel function that I have read about somewhere, probably here)

Sub ClearUnlockedCells()
' Clearform Macro
' Clear entered data from Form.
Dim WorkRange As Range
Dim DVRange As Range

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
Next ws

Unprotected Sheet Code Not Working?

Jun 9, 2014

I'm currently using a vba script to unprotect all of my worksheets within my workbook in order to refresh the pivots and then protect them again once the pivots are completed, but there are two worksheets I would like to remain unprotected in order for users to be able to edit them after the pivots have been refreshed. Now I've tried adding a sub code in order to unprotect one of the sheets as a test to see if it will allow me to edit the worksheet after I update the pivots. Unfortunately the coding isn't working, and the worksheet is still remaining in protect mode. Here's the code I am using to protect the worksheets when refreshing the pivot as well as the code I am attempting to use in order to unprotect the one worksheet.
