for a particulat range
objPreviousSheet.Range("A1:A10").ClearContents

or for non-adjacent ranges
objPreviousSheet.Range("A1,A3,A4,A10,F45").ClearContents

or  for the whole sheet
objPreviousSheet.Cells.ClearContents

or for the whole used range
objPreviousSheet.UsedRange.Clear

or for the current datarange
objPreviousSheet.ActiveCell.CurrentRegion.ClearContents

Note Clearcontents as you seem to have started with will clear the data whereas .clear will clear the contents and also any formatting applied to the cell.
