I think I've had enough of using excel generated macro's as an excuse for decent code. I need to turn this:
Small procedure, function, what have you that will continue this pattern until I hit some kind of indicator to tell it to stop. This just clears the contents from 7 rows, hops down 9 rows and does it again.
i am trying to use clearcontents with the below code but i get an error,
With Sheets(1) With .Range("J7") .ClearContents Range("J7:J" & .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row) .Formula = "=H7-I7" .AutoFill Range("J7:J" & .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row) End With End With
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 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.
I have a range of cell content to be clear (Value only) but no formula in those cell.
The range is populated in cell H106. Example cell if cell H106 = D5:E102 then clear the value value only in cell range D5:E102 if cell C106 = G5:H102 then clear the value value only in cell range G5:H102.
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)
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?
I'm trying to figure out code to have only the contents of cell 'a2' cleared when the contents of cell 'a1' is changed. The issue is that both cells are derived from lists and I don't want the formats cleared.
Is it possible using vba code to clear a specific cell's contents? I have a workbook that has text boxes that need the linked cell cleared when the workbook opens so the user can start fresh with empty text box's.
I've been pressing on with my project and figured out that I really do not know the difference between Deleting and Clear contents. I really thought they were the same but am now unsure. I guess I have 2 questions. Which is better to use? what I'm doing is removing old data and importing new data. and which is more efficient for writing code.
i have attached a template spreadesheet that 20 people uses everyday. The template works fine but what i would like to do is write a code to clear all the content that manually entered beforeclose. For some reason code is not working properly because when i wrote code to clear the contents the buttons don't work . I also attached the spreadsheet.
I'm playing along with Excel. I discovered it doesn't like cutting and pasting in VBA. This screws up formulas in cells.
It much prefers copying and pasting. So this involves an extra step, going back to the cells you just copied and clearing them.
So I have a selection of cells and I just copied them to a different location. Naturally the location I just copied it to then becomes selected.
I would like to go back to the cells that have the dotted selection around them and clear them. If I simply use Selection.ClearContents it will clear the currently selected cells, NOT the dotted selection.
Command to clear the contents of the dotted selection?
I am trying to change this code to clear the contents of the last column of my "Master sheet". I am having trouble indexing to the last column, however. I found this code online but it looks much more complicated than it needs to be. Is there any way to do this easier/change this code to fit my needs?
Right now, the letter of the column I want to delete pops up in a message box, but I'm not sure where to go from there.
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.
I have a small workbook that copies 4 cells to a database list as per the code below, 2 of the fields activate a pop up calendar for date input on a button push the data is transfered to the sheet and the cells are cleared, however on the clear contents parts at the bottom of the code it reactivated the pop up calendar, is there a way of not having this pop up when clearing the contents.
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.
I have a spreadsheet with data to row 5000. I have column Y that has an "X" in it. I would like some VBA code to look at each row up to 5000, in column Y for the "X". If it is there, clear the cell contents on the current row in columns T, U, and V.
I've tried modifying some existing code (excluding the Y column range of 5000) but keep getting a "Compile error: Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignments". How do I set the 5000 limit and get this code back on track?
Sub RemoveBankDelay() n = WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Range("Y:Y"), "X") For i = 1 To n
I am trying to get a macro that will insert a line above whatever line the text "INSERTXYZ" is in. I'm getting that fine but I also want to clear the contents of cells "A:S" on whatever the new row number is.
Can anyone modify this piece to accomplish that? If you need to tear it completely down, I'm interested in simpler way as well.
