Simply modify the delete condition.

If you are deleting non-blank rows, why not delete all?

The blank rows that are deleted as well will be replaced with new blank rows.

Thanks

If I delete all, will that also delete a command button on the sheet?  How do I felete all?

If the command button is anchored above row 5 then it would stay.

How are you determining your last used row?

Assuming you can pull the row value from this as a variable, lets call it n; you could then just select rows 6 to n and use EntireRows.Delete

Alternatively, create a blank template including buttons that you can copy and paste over the relevant area. Then you could clear the whole sheet.

Thanks
