Hi all,

I want to clear cell "I15" after 60 seconds. I will be calling this sub within another sub. Probably being stupid but can someone see why the following isn't working? The cell is being cleared instantly.

Code:
Sub ClearTimer()
Dim StartTime As Single
StartTime = Timer
Do While Timer - StartTime <= 60
    Range("I15").ClearContents
Loop
MsgBox "cleared"
End Sub

Thanks

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Maybe something like this:

Code:
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:01:00"))
 Range("I15").ClearContents

It is actually cleared during every loop for the next 60 seconds.
You have to clear the contents after the loop is finished.
Code:
Dim starttime: starttime = VBA.timer
Do While VBA.timer - starttime <= 15
   DoEvents
Loop
Range("I15").ClearContents
