I am trying to write a code that finds the character "-" from cells in a range B3:H3 and clears the contents. I've seemed to hit a snag and could use some help

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Do you want to clear the ENTIRE contents of the cell if it contains a - ?

Yes hotpepper. I have already written a code that automatically pulls data from these cells to make a line chart, but I need to clear the contents of these cells that have "-" so that it will format the chart correctly and view it as blank.

For Each c In Range("B3:H3")
