You can put the textboxes into an array & then check the names to determine if you want to clear them or not:

Dim atxtboxes as TextBox() = {Textbox1, Textbox2, Textbox3, TextBox4, TextBox5, TextBox6, Textbox7, Textbox8, Textbox9, Textbox10}

Dim ii As Integer
For ii = 0 to atxtboxes.Length-1
     Select Case atxtboxes(ii).Name
          Case "TextBox1", "TextBox3"       'Clear all textboxes in array EXCEPT Textbox1 & Textbox3
          Case Else
               atxtboxes(ii).Text = String.Empty
      End Select

Is this an array..... ?? Instead of mentioning all the textboxes in array cant we do it by looping thru textbox controls on form

Sure you can. Here's what that code would look like:

For Each ctl As Control In GroupBox1.Controls
    If TypeOf(ctl) Is TextBox Then
        ctl.Text = String.Empty
    End If
