Dear Experts:

I would like to achieve the following using VBA:

Go thru column B of the (used range of the ) active worksheet and look for text entries (numbers formatted as text do not count).
If found move up one cell and delete the contents of that cell. Do Loops.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

I have attached a sample file for your  convenience with detailed explanations.

Hi,

Try

Sub kTest()

    Dim k, i As Long, cAddr As String, r As Range
   
    Const StartCell As String = "B7" '<<=== adjust this to suit
   
    Set r = Range(CStr(StartCell))
   
    k = Range(r, Cells(Rows.Count, r.Column).End(xlUp))
   
    For i = 2 To UBound(k, 1)
        If Not IsNumeric(k(i, 1)) Then
            cAddr = cAddr & "," & Cells(i - 1, 1).Address(0, 0)
            If Len(cAddr) > 240 Then
                r.Range(CStr(Mid$(cAddr, 2))).ClearContents
                cAddr = vbNullString
            End If
        End If
    Next
    If Len(cAddr) > 1 Then
        r.Range(CStr(Mid$(cAddr, 2))).ClearContents
    End If

End Sub
