Macro To Clear Cells

I have data in columns a,b,c and d from row 1 to about 200 right now. Every week another 9 rows are added. I wanted to create a macro that will delete the last 9 entries in each column.

VBA Macro: Clear All Constant Cells In Range That Don't Have Formulas
is there a way to do this in VBA? I've also read: - Dave Hawley's recommendation of using: Sheet1.UsedRange.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants).ClearContents

from another thread (which is excellent!)

- SHG's recommendation of using a named range, for example:


Given my limited knowledge of VBA, how would I now combine the two to write a VBA sub-routine that clears a named range entitled "Entry" on a sheet entitled "Data"? Would the following be the correct syntax: Worksheets("Data").Range("Entry").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants).ClearContents

Clear Contents Of All Unlocked Cells (many Are Merged Cells
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.

Clear #VALUE! From Cells?
I am getting a #VALUE! error in one of my cells. I know it is because my worksheet is missing information to complete the formula. The information will be inputted periodically in the worksheet (lets call it worksheet number one). But, I have the results of cells in worksheet one that are tied to worksheet number two. Worksheet number two is getting the #VALUE! also until worksheet number one is completed (periodically).

But, in worksheet number two, I have an auto sum that adds up the results from worksheet one so I am getting the same #VALUE! error on the auto sum because only a few worksheet from worksheet one are complete. Is there anyway to clear the #VALUE! and get a number in the auto sum even if only a few worksheets from worksheet number one are inputted?

Clear Non-contiguous Cells
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" :-)

Clear All Worksheet Cells
Gotta question about destroying the contense of a worksheet. If for instance I got a macro which uses a different source everytime I run it, and this macro gives a result in a result worksheet. How can I possibly delete the contense of the result worksheet automatically before the execution starts? What I mean is: without selecting all the cells and pressing delete or either using a for loop to go through all the worksheet cells. Is there any function which clears the contense of a worksheet? (without deleting the worksheet itself)

Clear Contents Of Cells In A Range, LEN=0
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.

Conditional Clear Contents Of Cells
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 Data In Cells With Validation
I have several cells on a worksheet which contain data validation and force the user to select from a list, and several other cells with free user input. I want to use a macro to clear all data, and return the cells containing data validation to blank. (I have a blnak row at the top of all my lists, so there is a selection for "blank".)

I have no problem clearing the cells requiring user input, but my recorded macro would not select the cells with validation and return them to blank.

The first cell containing validation that I need to clear is M39. I have my code listed below for clearing the other cells. If I could get a clue on how to return M39 to blank, I could figure out the rest of the cells.

VBA To Duplicate Sheet And Clear 2 Cells
I have a spreadsheet that I have created as a door schedule for faculty members at our institution of higher education. The intention is for them to fill-in their office hours and courses along with a few other bits of information. One sheet should have their teaching and office hours and one sheet should not.

These are the cells that should be cleared once the sheet has been duplicated (F30, F31, G30, G31). Once the sheet is duplicated and those two cells' contents has been deleted, both sheets should be printed. Ideally, all of this would be initiated by clicking a hyperlink or something like that.

Clear Spaces From Otherwise Empty Cells
I have a data table which has a mixture of text, blank cells, and cells with spaces in. I have created a pivot table from the data table. The pivot table is counting the cells with spaces in instead of reading them as blank. I have been able to fix this by putting on a filter in the data table, highlighing all the blank cells only and then clearing them column by column.

The problem is the data table is 50 columns long, so it is quite time consuming to do this manually. The data table gets updated regularly so this is an ongoing problem. Does anyone know of a faster solution to fix this problem? I have attached a snapshot of the problem as an example

Remove/Clear Duplicate Cells
I have a workbook with 12 sheets, 1 for each month of the year. Each month has around 30,000 user IDs on it (this is a log of each time a user logs into our website). What I need to do is find out how many unique users have logged into our site for the whole year, or in other words, remove duplicate user ids accross the workbook. I realise that this will probably destroy my processor, so was wondering the best way to do it? I also have all this information in ONE spreadsheet if it would be easier? I just copied and pasted each month into a column (Jan is column A, feb in B, mar in C etc) I ran some code on this sheet to remove dupllicates from column A:E but this was taking AGES!

I have a protected worksheet in which certain calculations are performed based on certain inputs.

For example, let's take Column E:

Starting in cell E4, I have cells in that column which are input cells and further down the column are calculated cells which are locked and whose formulas are hidden.

I was looking for a macro which would go down col E and clear contents of all unlocked cells without messing up any of the protected cells.

Also, there are certain cells in which I want to clear contents and some cells that I want the macro to insert a "0" value.

The input cells are non-contigous.

Clear One Cells Content When Changing Another Cell
I am quite a novice with excel and I am trying to get a cell to show blank when I select a drop down list value in another cell.

Cell D2 contains a validated list containing two items (Air, Vacuum).

If I select Vacuum I wish to change another cells (D4) contents to blank, D4 is also a validated list containing three items (Yes, No, BLANK) the blank is actually a blank space and not the text blank.

I can get the cell to operate correctly but if I select Air in Cell D2 and then Yes in cell D4, but then change my mind and reset to Vacuum in cell D2 i need the cell D4 to clear its contents automatically.

Clear Contents & Change Color Of Cells
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 Value Cell & Leave Formula Cells
The worksheet (Payments) contains a list that allows the user to input accounting transactions. Almost every input cell contains a formula or data validation enabling selection from a dropdown.

The worksheet feeds the data to 3 separate spreadsheets (Debits / Credits / VAT) and the formulas for that are contained within dynamic ranges in the other 3 sheets. A command button macro then feeds that data from the 3 sheets to the Master sheet. This all works perfectly.

After the macro is run and the data is copied to the Master sheet, I would like all of the data in the 4 other sheets to be cleared without losing the formulas and data validation, ie so that the sheets are empty and clear for the next batch of inputs.

Clear/Delete All Formula Error Cells
I am trying to write a macro to find all cells that are returning cell errors (ie: #REF!) within a named range, to select only those cells, and then to clear the contents of only these cells. It is my understanding that replacing or altering the value is not an option because doing so will return a "" string value, instead of a clear cell. Replacing the cell's contents with a =na() is also unacceptable...these cells to be completely clear. I was unable to piece together a macro from searching around this site and thought it would be best to just ask.

Mutiple Clear Data Macro

that clear cell data.

I have attached several screen shots of my spreadsheet, with the URLs listed below.

Spreadsheet (xls & xlsm) in zip format

It is a trading order sheet that I want to use, but also upload to a blog that I have just
started, relating to trading as a free download, hopefully it may benefit some users/visitors etc.

OK, regarding the macros.

I'm not quite sure how it is best to do it.
In total there are 13 'Clear Buttons.'

11 are 'CLEAR DATA' Buttons
12 is a 'Clear ONLY ORDER SHEET DATA' Button.
Finally 13 is a 'Clear All DATA!' Button

I think it's best if I give the cell location of where I would like the macro buttons located and what data they clear.
Clear DATA - Button 1 - (Is in Cell F3) - To Clear Data, Columns D,E,F & Rows 4 to 13)
Clear DATA - Button 2 - (Is in Cell N3) - To Clear Data, Columns G to O & Rows 4 to 13)
Clear DATA - Button 3 - (Is in Cell U3) - To Clear Data, Columns S,T & U & Rows 4 to 13)
Clear DATA - Button 4 - (Is in Cell F15) - To Clear Data, Columns D,E,F & Rows 16 to 25)
Clear DATA - Button 5 - (Is in Cell N15) - To Clear Data, Columns G To O & Rows 16 to 25)
Clear DATA - Button 6 - (Is in Cell U15) - To Clear Data, Columns S,T & U & Rows 16 to 25)................................
