Try this

Sub Sample()
    Dim LastRow As Long
    LastRow = Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1
    Sheets("Sheet1").Range("B" & LastRow & ":B" & Rows.Count).ClearContents
End Sub

Open in new window

Makrini: That won't work if the user has rows filled up till say B100001. Also the code will not work in Excel 2003 ;)

You should always avoid hard-coding rows :)

@allwork32: If you want to clear all rows then use the code in ID: 35003216 (Based on Markini's code) and if you want to clear all rows in Col B then use the code in ID: 35003184

@Sid - would not the following be more correct?

    Sheets("Sheet1").Rows(lastrow+1 & ":" & Rows.Count).ClearContents

otherwise, lose that last row which has data?

Yes. I missed that in the 2nd code. I did incorporate that in the 1st one though :)
