Hi,

In the below code before it retrieves the data I need it to clear the data that is in a range named 'ClearDataRange'.


Open in new window

Sub GetData()

    'ActiveSheet.Unprotect

    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 5, 1)
    Y = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 11, True)
    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 12, False)
    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 13, True)
    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 14, "Default")
    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 18, False)
    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 24, False)
    X = EssVSetSheetOption(Null, 25, False)


    X = EssVRetrieve(Null, Range("Retrieve_Data"), 1)
    If X = 0 Then
        MsgBox ("     Data Retrieve Successful.")
    Else
        MsgBox ("Retrieve Failed. Please try again.")
    End If

    Range("C15").Select
    'ActiveSheet.Protect

End Sub
