Past Tip of the Day


Lloyd writes: I attempted to use the F2/Edit function in the record macro mode. It would not work. It appears when you are in the F2 mode, record is turned off. Is this true?

What I need to do throughout a big worksheet was to edit the cell, move the cursor to the end of the cell and then delete the last 4 characters if the characters.

This macro should do it:

Sub RemoveLast4()
For Each cell In ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
cell.Value = Left(cell.Value, Len(cell.Value) - 4)
Next cell
End Sub
