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?

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?

Using Command Button To Clear Cells

Dec 11, 2012

I have created a command button, right clicked the button and selected 'View Code'. In the code window I've entered the following code:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
IB_FB_Hedge_3 Outcome.range(W10:X11).ClearContents
End Sub

As soon as I enter the code a message pops up:

"Compile error:

Expected: list separator or )"

Is my syntax wrong? Is the sheet name, 'IB_FB_Hedge_3 Outcome' not allowed?

When I created this code a few minutes before I was not having the 'Compile error' problem, but the Command Button was not working either. When I clicked the command button it would just show the circles at the corners, suggesting that it is still in editing mode and not properly activated as a command button.

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.

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.

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.

VBA Macro: Clear All Constant Cells In Range That Don't Have Formulas

Jun 22, 2009

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:

Range("Inputs").ClearContents

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 If 2 Characters Or Less

Feb 10, 2010

I am looking for a way to remove text from a cell if it is 2 characters or less but do nothing if the text is longer than that. Is there a way to do this with either a function or an advanced find?

For more detail, I have a list of middle initials and last names. The cells are either a middle initial by itself like "D." or they are a last name like Jones. I want to go through and delete the cells that have the middle initial and leave the ones with the last name. So if there is a function that will evaluate the cell, and if it is 2 characters or less, then delete the contents. If greater than 3, leave it alone.

How To Clear Cell Contents

Jan 17, 2012

I have the following code where I want to clear the cells.

Code:

Workbooks(strOutputFileName).Sheets(2).Activate
Range("F9:F25,C27:E57,F59:F60,J9:J25,G27:I57,J59:J60,N9:N25,K27:M57,N59:N60,R9:R25,O27:Q57,R59:R60").Select
Selection.ClearContents

When I run this code, where it should select G27:I57, it instead selects G27:N57!!!!

When I manually try to select the G27:I57, the selection jumps to the right to N57.

When I use this piece of code on a different worksheet, it works OK!

Clear Contents Of Dropdown Box?

Feb 27, 2012

I am trying to have a macro clear out the contents of a cell before it quits, the cell contains validation data in the form of a list. My goal is to force the user to choose an option every time before exporting a file, the cell contains what will become a part of the filename. I want to make sure the user, usually me, remembers to change it each time rather than accidentally saving over another filename. I had the following code and kept getting a 400 error (nice and specific)

Code:
ActiveSheet.Range("O3").ClearContents

The only way my macro will run without a 400 error is if that line is commented out. Is there any way to clear out the cell and retain the validation data dropdown list?
