Hey everyone...is it possible using VBA, to select a range of data and delete everything that isn't a formula in that range? I have a report with thousands of cells, and i need to occasionally delete some of the data in different areas...it takes a long time trying to figure out which are formula, and which is hard coded data.

Thanks for any help,

Dave

PERFECT!!! I just changed it to:

Code:
Sub myDeleteNonFormula()
    Selection.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants).ClearContents
End Sub

So I didn't have to delete the whole sheet!

Thanks a bunch! I really appreciate it!

Dave
