Macro To Clear Cells With Numbers But Not Cells With Formulas
Jan 22, 2013
Macro to clear cells with numbers but no cells with formulas with in this macro:
Dim i As Long
i = Range("E3")
If i > 0 Then
' Copy range
Range(Cells(6, 10 + i), Cells(500, 17)).Copy
Range(Cells(6, 10), Cells(500, 17)).Select
' Paste special
ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:=2, Link:=1, _
' Clear i columns on the right
Range(Cells(6, 18 - i), Cells(500, 17)).ClearContents
The range is where the cells with numbers need to be cleared but not the ones with 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
Im trying to make life easier by setting up some sort of macro function that will clear the contents of all the cells except for the ones that have formulas in them. I don't want to delete the 1st row as it contains the titles for each column.
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 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?
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.
Col A - budget items (description) Col B - budget dollars Col C - actual dollars Row 10 - summation Cols B and C
When the budget is prepared the actual dollars in Col C are equal to the budget dollars for all items. For instance the formula =b2 is placed in cell C2. As time passes the user records actual dollars in Col C for each item by entering the actual amount directly into the cell. Actual dollars do not become known all at the same time, so that Col C will contain a mixture of formulas and entered numbers.
How can I highlight the cells in Col C that have entered numbers rather than formulas.
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.
Macros that will insert formulas into cells, and I've been able to modify the macros to insert additional (simpler) formulas well enough on my own. But I can't seem to find the pattern of where to put the quotation marks! Here's the macro code that will enter my formula, including the formula (and the portion of code that the debugger highlights):
r.Offset(, 1).FormulaR1C1 = _ "=VLOOKUP(rc[-1]"",""'Blend List'""!""A2"":""E250"",5,FALSE)" And here's the code in it's entirety:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim r As Range If Intersect(Target, Columns("d")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub Application.EnableEvents = False ActiveSheet.Unprotect For Each r In Intersect(Target, Columns("d")) If r.Row 1 Then If Not IsEmpty(r.Value) Then...........
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.
I am trying to have the formula =( SUMIF(S2:S125,">0",S2:S125))/(COUNTIF(S2:S125,">0")) Put into cells through vba. What I did to get the formula is typed it into an excel cell to find the average of a group of cells that do contain blank cells. The formula brought out the proper results. So all I did is put the formula into vba and changed the appropriate parts. The range will not be the same of course, but there is what I have.
When I show a msgbox for ActiveCell.Formula (Msgbox activecell.formula), it shows me the formula as above - =(SUMIF(S2:S125,">0",S2:S125))/(COUNTIF(S2:S125,">0")) Except instead of the s:ranges, it shows $L2:$L125 (which is correct). The quotes do show up around the criteria in both the sumif and countif. I keep receiving an error. I put a msgbox err.description & ", " err.number dialog in. The error comes up as ", 0" (no quotes).
Example: Column A has a mixture of letters and numbers. ie AU1234 or AU5678 Always the letters will be first, but not sure if 2 or 3 letters. Need to insert space between letters and numbers.
I have so far. " =(left(a2,2)) & " " & (mid(a2,3,(len(a2)-2))) " this works if all are only 2 letters...
Now. What I need to do is open a .csv (will do manually) then hit something like ctrl-alt-k to run macro.
Step 1: Insert a column next to A, check rows down and for however many rows, make above formula (include 2 or 3 letters) to insert space between letters and numbers, select the new column, copy, select column a and overwrite with the values from the new column. ie turn 'A2' from "AU1234" to "AU 1234" and 'A3' from "AU4567" to "AU 4567" .
Step 2: Column D has comma delimited fields. Column F also has comma delimited fields. both D and F will always have the same number of fields. D will be something like 1234,2345,3456 ------ in this case 3 fields but could be over 100 fields F will be something like M0002456 (04P), M0002457 (05P), M1230477 (02A).
Need to split both D and G from row A2 simultaneously from comma fields to rows. copying all other data from row. and insert before the next set of data in what was previously A3 and (in this case *should* be moved down to A5 because of the 2 inserted lines from the 2 extra fields).
E.g.: Column A Row 2 "AU 1234" Column B Row 2 "data1" Column C Row 2 "data2" Column D Row2 "1234" Column E Row 2 "data3" Column F Row 2 "M0002456 (04P)" Column A Row 3 "AU 1234" Column B Row 3 "data1" Column C Row 3 "data2" Column D Row 3 "2345" Column E Row 3 "data3" Column F Row 3 "M0002457 (05P)" Column A Row 4 "AU 1234" Column B Row 4 "data1" Column C Row 4 "data2" Column D Row 4 "3456" Column E Row 4 "data3" Column F Row 4 "M1230477 (02A)"
Then carry on to next row which may have only one field and can be ignored/skipped to the next which may have 100 fields which will need to be split to rows and inserted...etc....
Step 3 Remove all the "space Bracket-data-Bracket" ie " (04P) from column F
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
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
I am running Excel 2007 on Windows Vista Business 32 bit. Recently I have noticed that if I enter a formula into an empty, unsused cell, it is recognized as a formula. If I modify that formula, it is then recognized as text and does not work as a formula. The only way I can get the cell to recognize a formula is to delete the cell and start over. This same scenario does not occur on previously stored workbooks. I have checked all of the flags that I know about, including the Options function.
I have a column of numbers and want to make sure everything has been entered correctly from our scanning software. Basically, I want to automatically highlight any cell that has any letter in it (e.g. z12o2 instead of 21202 or R705 instead of 5705), ignoring any cells that contain only numbers. I haven't had any luck using conditions based on formulas like =ISTEXT.
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?
I need to clear all cells in a column that have a particular value. The value is sometimes a constant like "0" (zero) and sometimes is a value based on a formula. Is there a VBA code that will allow me to select those cells in column matching a particular value and clear them?
I need to find a way to autosort a series of numbers, inputted manually for example, in cells A1 through A15. The autosort function needs to put the numbers in descending or ascending (either way, doesn't matter) in cells B1 through B15.
In effect, if the numbers inputted into the first cells change daily, then the correct order of these be automatically sorted so that they are in a specific order.
The closest I can come WORKS, but I'm using about 300 filter formulas to do so.
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 spreadsheet with a large table of data (values only no formulas). Whoever programmed it, they decided that cells with irrelevant entries should display three dots, i.e. "...". Problem is now need to clear these cells (so they are truly blank) but some of them have been auto-corrected in to ellipses and some have not. I wrote the following code:
This is fine for the three dots that are just three dots, but for the ones that were auto-corrected to ellipses it doesn't work. How do I amend the code so that it clears the cells that are three dots and the ellipses too?
