- To clear content from a cell, you need to use the ClearContents method.
- You can use it for a single cell, a range, or an entire worksheet.
In VBA, there is a method called ClearContents that you can use to clear values and formulas from a cell, range of cells, and from the entire worksheet.
To use this method, first, you need to define the expression somewhere you want to clear the content, and then type “.ClearContents”.
Clear Contents from a Single Cell
Let’s say if you want to clear values from the cell A1.
In this case, first, you need to define the cell A1 using the range object and then the ClearContents method.
So, the code would be:
Sub ClearContentExamples() Range("A1").ClearContents End Sub
You can also use the cells property to define a cell. And the code would be:
Sub ClearContentExamples() Cells(1, 1).ClearContents End Sub
Clear Contents from a Range
In the same way, you can define a range and then use the ClearContent method to clear values and formulas from that range.
Let’s say you want to clear values from the range A1:A10, in this case, the code would be something like below.
Sub ClearContentExamples() Range("A1:A10").ClearContents End Sub
Clear Content from an Entire Worksheet
To clear content from an entire worksheet, you can use the below code:
Sub ClearContentExamples() Cells.ClearContents End Sub
And to clear from a specific worksheet:
Clear Content from the Selection
If you want to write a dynamic code that can clear contents from the selected cells, then you can use the below code.
Sub ClearContentExamples() Selection.ClearContents End Sub
Below are some of the other methods that you can use:
Sub ClearContentExamples() Range(“A1”).Clear ‘Clears Everything Range(“A1”).ClearComments ‘Clear Comments Range(“A1”).ClearFormats ‘Clears Formatting Range(“A1”).ClearHyperlinks ‘Clear Hyperlinks Range(“A1”).ClearNotes ‘Clear Notes Range(“A1”).ClearOutline ‘Clears Outline End Sub
