Clear Data Entry Cells in Microsoft Excel


This question seems to be asked a lot, and it's very simple, even for a novice Excel user.

Suppose you enter data, print the worksheet, and then you want to clear the worksheet to enter more data, and print again.

Just select all of the cells, using the Ctrl key if they're not contiguous, and hit InsertNameDefine and give it a name like "MyData". Then, record yourself a macro that does the following:

  1. EditGo to and type in MyData and hit Enter.
  2. Hit your Delete key.
  3. Stop recording.
