Hi Everyone,

Not sure if this is harder than it sounds but i have a range that can have different rows hidden each time.

So the range is E:50:M250 now all I want is a macro that can clear the entire range including the hidden cells

So I want VBA Activesheet.range("E50:E250").clearcontents (including hidden rows)

please help if you can thanks

Tony

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

The code you posted should work, is it not clearing the hidden cells?

HI Norrie,
I thought it should and you are correct it does, I'm just having a brain dead day.
You can all have a good laugh at this I did.
Instead of
Activesheet.range("E50:E250").clearcontents
I typed
Activesheet.range("E50:E250").clearcomments !!!!
I suppose to get the code to work it helps if you can spell LOL :)
thanks for your help I'd never have spotted it otherwise.
