You can use the following code which will do what you are looking for...

Saurabh...
Sub cleardata()
    Dim lr As Long
    lr = Cells.Find(What:="*", SearchDirection:=xlPrevious, SearchOrder:=xlByRows).Row
    If lr > 13 Then Rows("14:" & lr).ClearContents



End Sub

You need it as VBScript or VBA for Excel?

Well, if it's VBS you really need, here's how you do it...
just make sure that you change the c:\test.xlsm for the file that you need to clear the data.
Adjust the range properly, your sheet might have more rows & columns than that.

 
dim objExcel
dim objWorkbook
Dim objWorksheet

Set objExcel = CreateObject("EXCEL.APPLICATION")
Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open("c:\test.xlsm")
Set objWorksheet= objWorkbook.Sheets(1)

objWorksheet.Range("A14:IV65535").ClearContents

objWorkbook.Close true
set objWorksheet = nothing
set objWorkbook = nothing
Set objExcel = nothing
