Hello

I have a spreadsheet which contains some number in column D, E, G, H, I, J, K & L

The numbers in Column D should be compared against column E, G, H, I, J, K & L and if found then the macro should clear that cell content in Column D


Here is the Data

You can use helper column.
In M13 put the formula:
=countif(E13:L13,D13)
Then auto filter column m for >0 and delete column D's data.

Code:
Sub Test()

Set Rng = Range("E:L")
For Each Ce In Range("D13:D20")
    If Len(Ce.Value) <> 0  And WorksheetFunction.Countif(Rng, Ce.Value) > 0 Then  Ce.ClearContents
Next

End Sub

Does some VBA like this help? this only Checks D13 to D20, change Ce range according to your needs.
