Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help create a macro to clear all data and delete column starts with  “Status” as a header at “Validation2” sheet. I have attached the workbook for Experts perusal. Hope Experts will help me to create this function.

If I understand correctly...
Sub x()
  
Dim rFind As Range
 
With Sheets("Validation2")
    .Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Offset(1).ClearContents
    Set rFind = .Rows(1).Find(What:="Status", LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
    If Not rFind Is Nothing Then
        Do
            rFind.EntireColumn.Delete shift:=xlToLeft
            Set rFind = .Rows(1).Find(What:="Status", LookAt:=xlWhole, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
        Loop Until rFind Is Nothing
    End If
End With
     
End Sub
