Can I have formula or macro to automatically assigned to a button on the worksheet to delete the column A-M from worksheet 2.

Thanks.
 

Excel Facts

Difference between two dates
Secret function! Use =DATEDIF(A2,B2,"Y")&" years"&=DATEDIF(A2,B2,"YM")&" months"&=DATEDIF(A2,B2,"MD")&" days"
paste the middle line into the code for the button

Sub deleterange()
Range("A:M").EntireColumn.Delete
End Sub

this will just work on the active worksheet though.

maybe this would be better to make sure you activate the right sheet.

Sub deleterange()
Sheet1.Range("A:M").EntireColumn.Delete
End Sub

Do you want to clear the data leaving columns A-M blank and leaving column N the same or do you want do delete the columns so that column N becomes column A?

In all fairness, your original post did request how to delete the columns--not the contents.

To remove the data from the columns, use ClearContents:

Sheets("Sheet2").Columns("A:M").ClearContents
