Hi everyone,
I would like to delete everything in a spreadsheet that lies below row 6. The easiest way to do so using VBA is to use

Rows("7:7").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.ClearContents

selection.delete. However, I would like to avoid the the select statement. Is that possible?

Try

Code:
Sub Test2()
Dim LR As Long
LR = Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows).Row
Rows("7:" & LR).ClearContents
End Sub

hi there,
one more question: on occasion, the spreadsheet may be empty. How can I account for that?

Try

Code:
Sub Test2()
Dim LR As Long
If WorksheetFunction.CountA(ActiveSheet.Cells) = 0 Then Exit Sub
LR = Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows).Row
Rows("7:" & LR).ClearContents
End Sub
