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.

Excel 2010 :: Search For A String In Contents Of Range Of Cells

Sep 26, 2013

I have a range of cells each containing different values. Each of these different cells has a related date contained in the row underneath.

I want to be able to search the range of cells and find it in the contents of a cell and return the corresponding date from the row below.

Excel 2010
A
B
C
D
E
F
G

[Code]...

Row A4:O4 is the range of cells to be tested. Row A5:O5 are the corresponding dates. Cell B1 is the value I want to search for and B2 is where the date I would like to appear.

In the example shown I'd like 01-Sep to appear in B2.

I'm using Excel2010 and Windows 7.

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 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 2003 :: Dynamic Named Range Of Non-contiguous Cells Suitable For Chart Series Reference

Nov 11, 2012

I am running Excel 2003 on a Win7 system.

Here is my situation:

Each of my data sets spans roughly 75 columns by 250 rows at present, but this could expand. The first 7 rows contain metadata. Columns 2-25 or so contain the raw data, from which everything to the right is calculated. The data sets have most columns in common, but not necessarily all.

In order to tease out the most meaningful information from my data, I frequently sort all or part of it based on varying criteria. When I find a useful sorting criterion, I create a new column with a header that describes the criterion and populate it with a formula that returns a 1 if the condition of interest is met for that row, or a 0 if it is not. For example, if I am doing this in column AA, I might enter

=--(AND($AX8>$AA$4,$Y8>0))

and copy it down to the end of the data. The resulting vector of 1s and 0s quickly re-identify data that meets that criterion even after subsequent resorting. It also makes locating data that meets multiple sorting criteria extremely simple. Essentially, I create a truth table.

Cell $AA$4 in the above example contains a "comparator" value I might wish to change at some point, which would change the subset of data the condition selects for.

Here's the first hard part:

For each data set, I need the ability to generate meaningful plots that includes separate series based on the criteria I have described. However, I also need to retain the ability to resort the data or change the comparator value without disrupting these plots. In other words, the plots must NOT change when the order of the data is changed, but MUST change to display the appropriate data when the comparator changes.

Here's the 2nd hard part:

Once I have this working for one data set, I need to be able to port it to other data sets (which are contained in other workbooks), so that I can compare equivalent plots from each. I also need to minimize the number of manual steps involved in doing so, to avoid human errors and excessive time consumption.

The only other possible complication I can think of at the moment is that, to this point, I have been inserting blank rows to isolate subsets that I do not wish to perform further sorting on from each other.

Right now I am angling toward VBA code that loops through the entire data set to generate base dynamic ranges using the column header row (row 1) as the names, and the entire column of data for the rangeloops through the truth table columns to generate "branch" row ranges for each of the sorting conditions,loops through the entire data set one more time to create "branch" ranges for each of the base ranges.

I could generate some code to accomplish a one-off solution for a given configuration of a single data set (provided there is not a list length limit in a chart series that I'd be violating)...but without a dynamic named range, I don't know how to get to something that would update appropriately. So in essence, I am still stuck at the dynamic range part of this.

Clear Contents Of Filtered Range

Jan 10, 2007

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

Excel 2010 :: Create Macro Button To Clear Multiple Cells On Multiple Worksheets?

Jul 2, 2014

I have attached a test workbook excel 2010 (ignore ref# errors, I've cut the workbook down for uploading purposes) What I would like to do is have a 'Button' on my 'information Sheet' which when clicked would clear certain cells. I have searched the forum but can't find a solution, everyone seems to want to delete rows or columns but I just want to clear certain cells. The workbook will have 11 sheets each named 'caravan 1' through to 'caravan 11' The uploaded test workbook only only has 3 sheets.

On 'caravan 1' (which is slightly different to the other 10) I want to clear the content of cells

B4 & B5
C4, C22 & C41
D4 & D5
E4,E5, E22,E23,E41 &E 42

On all other 'Caravan sheets' I want to clear the contents of cells

D4 & D5
E4, E5, E22, E23, E41 & E42

It would be icing on the cake if it could give a warning such as " are you sure you want to clear these cells" but that isn't really necessary. The worksheets will be password protected, but the cells mentioned above will not be. If it proves too difficult to clear all the cells on all the sheets with one click, then perhaps a simpler solution might be to have a button on each sheet instead

Automatically Clear Contents Of Cell Range

Jan 17, 2013

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:

Code:

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..

Clear Contents Of Range Based Upon Values

Dec 17, 2007

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

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 & 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.

Clear Contents Of All Unlocked Cells (many Are Merged Cells

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.

How To Clear Contents Of Clipboard Before Tool Takes Screen Print In Excel VBA

Apr 20, 2014

I've have a tool/code that takes the screen prints of the active window (when I press F9) and pastes it in a word document.

But whenever I do copy some text or any other image and when I press F9 to take the screen print of the active window. I get the text pasted into the word, this is because the clipboard content has text first and then the screen print of the active window.

Instead When I press F9, I wanted the below to happen

1. Content from the Clipboard should be cleared

2. Take the screen print

3. Paste it in the word document.

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.

Range("B186:K215").Value = Range("AX186:BG215").Value
Range("B219:K248").Value = Range("AX219:BG248").Value
' clear content of cells

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.

Excel 2010 :: Clear Formula From A Cell

Apr 4, 2014

I am using Excel 2010. I am extracting text and data info from a single cell and inserting the info into different cells. Let's say the following formula is entered into cell M28:

=IF(MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),2)="IM", MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),10), "")

This tests cell J28 to see if the text string "IM" is present in that cell.

If it is, then the text "IM" plus the following eight characters become the result in cell M28.

If the text string "IM" is not present in cell J28, I want the contents of cell M28, that is the formula itself, to be deleted from cell M28. EG below:

=IF(MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),2)="IM", MID(J28, FIND("IM", J28),10), function here to delete this formula from this cell)
( logical test ) ( value if true ) ( value if false )
